Out in the city strees
Alone and weak from the cold and hunger,
Trembling hands unfold a photograph.
Mom and Dan and Ann Marie,
Smiles from a distant sunrise,
The only smile you've seen in days.

CHORUS

Come back to me
Come back my darlin'
Come back to me
Or I will fade away
Come back to me
Come back my darlin'
I still believe in you
My runaway.

Jesse and Willy Lee
Play in the street while their mother wonders,
"Why won't they listen to a word I say?"
I sing a lullaby
To the baby in my arms
And the laughter fades away.

CHORUS

Come back to me
Come back my darlin'
I'm sending hope
For the runaway

Somewhere a flash of light
Cuts through the night
Like a lighthouse callin'
All of the lost and forgotten.
I made a vow I will continue
'Till i find you.
I'll never stop, I'll never stop believein'

I will wait for you forever
Sending you Hope for the runaway.
