Candlebox - Lover Come Back To Me Lyrics

D'you ever see yourself in my eyes?
Did you ever think that maybe I'd be lost without you?
D'you ever think that I was alright
You knew it all along

D'ya ever try to sing to my songs?
Did you ever take a walk is wasn't walking with you, yea?
Did you love me just to be loved?
I knew it all along, I didn't try.

Sometimes I like to be alone.
Sometimes I try to telephone...

Lover, come back to me,
Lover, come back to me,
In your arms is where I need to be
I am alone
I am alone
A raging sea.

I want to taste your bronze skin's delights.
Did you ever want to be the sun that browns me?
D'ya ever think that I might decide?
To ask you to stay, baby put up a fight.

Sometimes I like to be alone.
Sometimes I try to telephone...

Lover, you
Lover, come back to me,
Lover, come back to me,
'Cause in your arms is where I need to be.
I'm alone
I am alone
Raging sea, yea

Lover you
Lover, come back to me
Lover, come back to me, yea
Lover, come back to me , yea
In your arms is where I need to be
I am alone
I am alone
in this raging sea, yea

  16. Robert Jackson III

    My wife used to sing these songs to me from Candlebox and that's how she talk to me lots of times, unfortunately I didn't really understand The lyrics at the time, until she died in a car accident December 94. So if your love of your life sing to you don't make the mistake I made. She or he is trying to tell you something that they can't put in their own words. I still love her so much she was a brilliant woman. I will see her again in heaven, for she was a born-again Christian, I thank God for that. Dedicated to Denise Jackson!!!

    Robert Jackson III thank you, to know a man could love a woman that deeply gives me hope and when the time comes I hope she is waiting right next to you. So you two can go on your next adventure together.

    God bless you sir! God is good. I was Born Again/Saved in 06. Seems so hard, but it's really as simple as when we hurt someone, we Should ask for forgiveness from them. No different with God. And in a blink of an eye he comes in like a flood. I know how to Love now, because of Jesus! Love you brother. All the best to you and your family

  22. Lefty K

    I just seen them Live @ The St.Clair River Fest 7/25/15 - St.Clair,Mi. I took my now wife to a Candlebox Concert,on our first date back in 1994.We were REALLY looking forward to this show for a few month's only to be let down. There was probably about 8,000 people there and half of the crowd left halfway through their Set.They only played 4 - 5 songs from the first 2 LP's. Boring show and a waste of time.


    +Lefty K Wow! I saw them at the old Emerald Theater in Mount Clemens in 2012 and they were absolutely brilliant from start to finish.

    Daniel Gallegos

    just see them in Denver 9/12 and they brought the house down. awesome show.

    Todd McFarland

    Lefty K seen them the last 2 yrs in a row at the city winery in Chicago acoustic show sooooo AMAZING🙃🤓🙃🤓

    Melissa Schaefer

    Well I hope that doesn't give u a real taste of Candlebox bc I have seen them at least a half a dozen and they were always amazing.. My thought to u would be(if u care) try again.... n u saw them once so obviously u know they are amazing still!!!!

    Melissa Schaefer
