Crash Test Dummies - Never Comin' Back Lyrics




You said that you were getting cigarettes
Its been a week and you're not back yet
Your ashtray sits, empty, unused
I sit waitin', empty, confused

What could I have done
To make you feel this way?
What could I have said
To make you walk away?
If only I could know,
If only I could see
But you're not ever comin' back to me

You said I was the only man for you
But now it seems you've got another view
And is it someone else, or was it me?
Who is it with whom you'd rather be?

What could I have done
To make you feel this way?
What could I have said
To make you walk away?
If only I could know,
If only I could see
But you're not ever comin' back to me

I go to bed at night and dream of you
But in my dreams you're not just one, but two
And arm in arm you walk the beach
Just far enough to be out of reach

What could I have done
To make you feel this way?
What could I have said
To make you walk away?
If only I could know,
If only I could see
But you're not ever comin' back to me

    My mom used to play this album all the time. Now I have her to blame for liking this music!

    This CD is a masterpiece to me

  12. Late Night Sessions David Martucci

    If The Crash Test Dummies had Marcus Mumford from Mumford & Sons as the lead singer, this is the song they would have produced!

  13. Gunar Christensen

    Not the way I read it. She's left; he's bereft. The lyrics explore the absurdity (hey, it's Brad Roberts) of what keeps people together...the glue that cements relationships.

    "I know it's true...that I was made for her and she me too." But, what ties bind them? "When I sing my darling's praise...I know I'm right...or close anyways"??? "She glares right back at me.... Can't stand her Goddamn friends.... I put up with her parents...." There's nothing to come back to...what relationship?

  14. astolfo neves

    I like when Jonh Mcne have lost his bones... kkkk Very funny this part of the music....

  15. john mars

    Is this song about having realised you've been used, used and used all along? If it isn't, it's still a good number, well played too.

  16. batman66ism
