Back to you
It always comes around
Back to you
I tried to forget you
I tried to stay away
But it's too late

Over you
I'm never over
Over you
Something about you
It's just the way you move
The way you move me

I'm so good at forgetting
And I quit every game I've played
But forgive me love
I can't turn and walk away

Back to you
It always comes around
Back to you
I walk with your shadow
I'm sleeping in my bed
With your silhouette

Should have smiled in that picture
If it's the last that I'll see of you
It's the least that you could not do

Oh I will
Leave the light on
I'll never give up on you
Leave the light on
For me too

Back to me
I know that it comes
Back to me
Doesn't it scare you
Your will is not as strong
As it used to be

    It's about your one true love that didn't work out for whatever reason. You think about them all the time, even though it's been years since you were together. It's about never giving up hope that you'll be reunited someday and your heart will be whole again.

    There's just one (? ) love in your life... You find yourself never really wanting to say no to, or goodbye. Whatever you have with them, you know you don't have anywhere else, and it's safe and good for what it is. You'll always have a smile on your face thinking about them, no matter what else bothers you about them... Or the rest of the world. There is always 'that one'.
