A song about losing the one who matters most
The sun's setting over the wintry sky
I'm missing your face, missing the place
And time when we were

Bring us back to all those days gone by
Take me back to the time, back to the rhyme
That you asked me to write

And what I really wanna say
Is "Come back to me today"
Cause things are getting lonely in this one-horse, two-bit town
I know we'd be better off if you just had stuck around

But now that you're gone, and now that I really need you
The seconds pass like days, and the days are long
You promised me, you said "I will never leave you"
But you just left me here with your siren song

You swung your car out onto the 101
Feeling real scared, like nobody cared
And you had nowhere else to run

Trucks speeding off into the moonlit night
How could you know the stakes when you hit the brakes
How could you have known what came next

And what I really wanna say
Is "Come back to me today"
Cause things are getting lonely in this one-horse, two-bit town
I know we'd be better off if you just had stuck around

And what I really wanna say
Is "Come back to me today"
Cause things are getting lonely in this one-horse, two-bit town
I know we'd be better off if you just had stuck around

And what I really wanna say
Is "Come back to me today"
Cause things are getting lonely in this one-horse, two-bit town
I know we'd be better off if you just had stuck around

I gotta go, need to find something else to do
I've been trying real hard, but I let down my guard
And now I won't stop rememb'ring you

The roses look so pale on your cold gravestone
It's been a year since the end- when I lost my best friend
And the only girl I've ever loved

And what I really wanna say
Is "Come back to me today"
Cause things are getting lonely in this one-horse, two-bit town
I know we'd be better off if you just had stuck around
