Maybe I'm still hurting 
I can't turn the other cheek 
But you know that I still love you 
It's just that I can't speak

Ah they're shutting down the factory now 
Just when all the bills are due 
And the fields they're under lock and key 
Tho' the rain and the sun come through 
And springtime starts but then it stops 
In the name of something new 
And all the senses rise against this 
Coming back to you 

And they're handing down my sentence now 
And I know what I must do 
Another mile of silence while I'm 
Coming back to you 

There are many in your life 
And many still to be 
Since you are a shining light 
There's many that you'll see 
But I have to deal with envy 
When you choose the precious few 
Who've left their pride on the other side of 
Coming back to you 

Even in your arms I know 
I'll never get it right 
Even when you bend to give me 
Comfort in the night 
I've got to have your word on this 
Or none of it is true 
And all I've said was just instead of 
Coming back to you
