Come Back

Come back
Please come back to me
Things are so different ever since you left
Just come back
Please just come back to me...

I ran to your rescue
With no second guesses of myself
But everything was a blur
Except for your face as you passed me a glance
You pleaded for help to me
And I answered as best I could, but yet...
Yet...

Now I look where you should be
And the space is empty now
My eyes, they burn
But have I already cried all my tears for you,
Or is it that I just can't?

Oh please...
Please come back...
I never meant you any harm
I tried to protect you when you needed me most
I did all I could
I never did once hesitate...

I wait for you to turn the corner
But have to remind myself that you're not there
I wait to hear you talk to me
But then remember where you have gone
At night I lay awake, afraid to sleep...
Afraid to dream...
What happened to you - It punishes me...

It was a mistake.
Never meant to happen...
You didn't deserve this
And yet you suffered for it anyway...

I'm punished by the remembrance of your face
The pleads of your eyes
How you held on so tight to me
Knowing that I was there to save you
And how
You cried when you knew
We were all there for you and how
Your mother called your name...

Come back...
Just please come back...
I can't beg and plead enough for your return...

Just come back
Please come back
Life is no longer the same...
