Get Back To Me

Yeah these feelings are trying

To eat me alive

Yeah my tears are threatening

To put out the flame of the fire I worked for

To brighten my life

The light is fading and

That silver lining is growing even

Greyer duller ever day

Do you even understand

What it is

To have to stand and silently watch your heart walk away

Do you even understand

How it feels

To be ashamed of missing somebody so badly that you’re

Reduced to calling them on the phone

When they’re not home

Just to hear their voice on the machine

Promising that they will get back to you

ASAP

Baby when did you plan on getting

Back to me

Three sharp raps

At my door

Lead me to your

Hesitant face

The apology in your crippled gaze

Makes me forget the name

Of my date

But only for a moment

We met on a plane

Just a month ago

When I was flying back here from my parent’s place

Where I buried all my former dreams

For you and me

Now when I dream those fantasies

Are for I and he

And you don’t even need to say the words

I can tell that finally

You do understand

What it is

To have to stand and silently watch your heart walk away

You do understand

How it feels

To be ashamed of missing somebody so badly that you’re

Reduced to calling them on the phone

When they’re not home

Just to hear their voice on the machine

Promising that they will get back to you

ASAP

But baby you waited much too long to get

Back to me
