The angst and doubt when a previous partner returns


I’ve thought of you so many times but now you’ve lost your place
Another guy has stirred my heart, I only see his face
Feelings that were deep for you are probably erased
At least that’s how I felt until you came here ready for the kill

Why did you come back?
Why did you come back?
Why did you come back to me?
Why did you come back to me?

I’ve managed to recover all my poise and self respect
Make up for the years of so much sorrow and neglect
Now I’m so confused and don’t know what I can expect
You seem to be sincere to me, how can I be sure to see?

You’re asking me if we can pick it up again
Choosing to ignore our bitter conflicts when
It was clear to me we couldn’t live together then
Are you telling me those times have gone, it’s not the end?

I wish I could believe those earnest words I seem to hear
I remember similar things once whispered in my ear
Yet still my heart responds to you whenever you are near
Seems that whether right or wrong I’ve waited for you all along
