Back To You

BACK TO YOU © Margaret MacDonald 2007

You’ve been away too long
You got no alibi
Been gone too long
For me to cry
And I got no time
For your serpentine charm
Don’t even wanna hear what’s
On your mind

In the winter rain
Last time you said goodbye
Pain so deep
I couldn’t even cry
Now in the summer shade
I’m finally seeing straight
Won’t have you back
In my life

That is why
I’m gonna slam the door on you
I won’t fight another bloody Waterloo
And I wish you’d try to see it like I do
I’m never ever going
Back to you

It won’t be long
Before you find somebody else
Maybe she’ll give you what you need
But I’ll be long gone
And though I wish you well
You’ll just be a distant memory

That is why
I’m gonna slam the door on you
I won’t fight another bloody Waterloo
And I wish you’d try to see it like I do
I’m never ever going
Back to you

How’d we far so fall so far so fast
Jill came tumbling after Jack
I never knew what made you snap

That is why
I’m gonna slam the door on you
I won’t fight another bloody Waterloo
And I wish you’d try to see it like I do
I’m never ever going
Back to you
