John Eddie – If You're Here When I Get Back lyrics

Kiss me bany on the curb
Throw your arms around my waist
Send me off with your sweet words
Say a little prayer
Show a little faith
These boots are broken in
From always leaving you
This road takes lots of turns
Each one leads me back to you

But if you're here when I get back
Will you open up the door?
If you're here when I get back
Will you pull me to the floor?
Will you kiss me like before?
I couldn't ask for more
I couldn't ask for more

I know you hate to sleep alone
I feel strangers closing in
I wanna crawl right through this phone
And feel the softness of your skin
I feel so helpless
And these walls are creeping close
In this here hotel room
Tonight I'm sleeping with your ghost but

If you're here when I get back
Will you put my fears to rest?
If you're here when I get back
Lay your head upon my chest
With nothing to confess
Aw baby, please say yes.
Aw darlin', please say yes.

And if I stay away too long
And somebody takes my place
Whenever sad boys sing their songs
I'll hear your voice
I'll see your face
And if the morning light we never share
You know you're there
In each and every single prayer

But if you're here when I get back
We'll put all that aside
If you're here when I get back
Will you open your arms wide?
Will you let me come inside?
I'd be so satisfied
