The Vandals – I Guess I'll Take You Back lyrics

The reason that I'm calling you is to let you know
I thought it through and after much debate in fact,
I guess I'll take you back.

I've heard from friends you've moved around and
Maybe your have settled down so when you get
This message please call me back.

It's been a rough few years for me, I moved back
With my family, but I'll still take you back.

And maybe it's too late to call or maybe it's the
Alcohol, but I think I want you back. I guess I'll
Take you back.

I realize it's been a while, you might be married or
Have a child. So give me your address and I can
Help you pack.

I need you now worse than before, I'll offer you
The chance once more. 'cause everything considered,
I guess I'll take you back.

I know that things had ended bad, but let's stop
Living in the past. I think I want you back.

And let's forget the things we said, we'll start again
With clearer heads. I guess I want you back.
I guess I'll take you back.

Please don't make me ask again, my calling card is
Nearly spent. And life without you has been so bad.

I don't require apologies-
Just think of what I'm offering.
I think I want you back. I guess I'll take you back.
