Come Back To Me (bonus track)

about

I've called this a bonus track because it's very raw and unprocessed. We recorded it at the end of a day, and you can hear my voice and guitar struggle through the take. I thought it was a nice ending to the album, and quite a stark comparison to the clean and punchy production of Die Fighting.

It's almost like a lullaby, expressing an inner knowledge and guidance that can be found when you come back to yourself.

lyrics

When the stars in your eyes
Tell you where you need to go
And the sun seems to shine
Ahead of time, only after you grow
When the space you occupy
Is filled with why's and TV shows
Even stars can be lies
Just hidden by what you think you know

So come back to me
Just come back to me
Come back to me
Come back to me

Breathing hard, disregard for everything
And all you're seeing
Searching far, lost in scars
Trusting everything but being
Playing games, calling names, chasing fame
Where are you now?
Spending time, losing time
We'll get there somehow

If you come back to me
So just come back to me
Come back to me
Come back to me
Come back to me
Come back to me

Drifting in and out of sleep
Never too deep, never again
And in that sleep you follow sheep
All the way down
Instead of counting them
So stay awake and take each day
As if it's made for you somehow
You'll find your way if you stay
Right here and now

So just come back to me
Just come back to me
Come back to me
Come back to me
