The Script – If You Ever Come Back lyrics

If you're standing with your suitcase
But you can't step on the train
Everything's the way that you left it I still haven't slept yet

And if you're covering your face now
But you just can't hide the pain
Still setting two plates on the counter but eating without 'cha

If the truth is you're a liar
When you say that you're okay
I'm sleepin on your side of the bed goin' out of my head now

And if you're out there try'na move on
But somethin' pulls you back again
I'm sitting here try to persuade you like your in the same room

And I wish you could give me the cold shoulder
And I wish you could still give me a hard time
And I wish I could still wish it was over
But even if wishing is a waste of time
Even if I never cross your mind

I'll leave the door on the latch
If you ever come back if you ever come back
There'll be a light in the hall and a key under the mat
If you ever come back
There'll be a smile on my face and the kettle on
And it will be just like you were never gone
There'll be a light in the hall and a key under the mat
If you ever come back if you ever come back now
Oh if you ever come back if you ever come back now

Now they say I'm wasting my time
'Cause you're never comin home
But they used to say the world was flat but how wrong was that now

And by leavin' my door open
I'm risking everythin' I own
There's nothin' I can lose in a break-in that you haven't taken

And I wish you could give me the cold shoulder
And I wish you can still give me a hard time
And I wish I could still wish it was over
But even if wishing is a waste of time
Even if I never cross your mind

I'll leave the door on the latch
If you ever come back if you ever come back
There'll be a light in the hall and a key under the mat
If you ever come back
There'll be a smile on my face and the kettle on
And it will be just like you were never gone
There'll be a light in the hall and a key under the mat
If you ever come back if you ever come back now
Oh if you ever come back if you ever come back now

If it's the fighting you remember or the little things you miss
I know you're out there somewhere so just remember this
If it's the fighting you remember or the little things you miss
Oh just remember this, oh just remember this

I'll leave the door on the latch
If you ever come back if you ever come back
There'll be a light in the hall and a key under the mat
If you ever come back
There'll be a smile on my face and the kettle on
And it will be just like you were never gone
There'll be a light in the hall and a key under the mat
If you ever come back if you ever come back now
Oh if you ever come back if you ever come back now

And it will be just like you were never gone
And it will be just like you were never gone
And it will be just like you were never gone
If you ever come back if you ever come back now

    I am a crying mess listening to this song. I know it is about a male/female breakup, but I think of my teenaged daughter who left me after 16 years to go live with her father. It has been a painful 15 months without her, and I think she's realized "the grass is not greener on the other side. " it has been hard letting her go to find this out for herself. As sad as I am that I did all the hard work raising her, and "disneyland dad" seems to get all the glory, I have to put all the negative thoughts aside. I feel the exact way this song illustrates, your real home is always here waiting for you no matter what.

    The first time I heard this song the first thing that came into my mind is the time when I leave home for the first time to find my own destiny. I suddenly remember my mom, I wonder what she really felt when I decided to move out and live on my own. The child that you've took care for 20 years will suddenly leave you. And I know its really hard to let go of someone that you really love its like your other half was taken away from you.

    I've been through a lot of stuff like this and for me it means that you never stop thinking about an ex lover or whatever, because once someone has a space in your heart they never leave, you just can't forget people even though you try hard. Because that's what love about, mempories remain in our brains and there's nothing you can do to forget them :) so if you think you can forget someone who has hurt you're wrong, just try to put it away but not forget.

    If you ever come back is a great song by a great band. This song has a lot of meaning to me, it holds many memories. The one that makes me cry in pain is the memory of my father. He died. I wish he could be here, I wish he could hug me and tell me its ok when I get my heart broken by a guy. To stand in the stands and clap for me when I graduate high school, to walk me down the ail at my wedding. He will never get to see his grand son or grand daughter he will never be here for me. Not now not ever. I would give my life up to here his voice one more time. (great I'm crying now. And this song is soo amazing) dad I miss you. I wish you could come back.
