'Come Back' is a song from the 2009 album Sounds Of The Universe by Depeche Mode.

Notes

Dave Gahan says in the 'Sounds Of The Universe' EPK:

"I do have my favourite tracks on the album at the moment but they change all the time! I think my favourite is actually 'Come Back' which is a song that I wrote with Andrew and Christian which has really come a long way from the demo."

Dave Gahan told the April 2009 of Rolling Stone Germany (translated from German):

"Martin helped a lot [with my songs], he invested a lot of time, trying a lot. Sometimes I had to pressure him a little bit, but he had this idea with the backing vocals in 'Come Back', which is wonderful."

Dave Gahan told Interia.pl (translated from Polish):

"'Come Back' was originally in a gospel atmosphere, but eventually we decided on a big wall of sound."

Lyrics


Come Back

Come back, come back to me

I'll be waiting, patiently

Come back, come back to me

I'll be waiting here patiently


Walking a thin white line between love and hate

Wasting all of my time in another world

In another place

I could use a little company

A little kindness could go a long way


Weeks turn into months

Months turn into years

Reaching the same conclusions

Gathering up the fear


Come back, come back to me

I'll be waiting, patiently

Come back, come back to me

I'll be waiting here patiently


Light will always shine in the heart of you

In truth and in reality

Only blindness can hide it away

I could use a little restraint

A little kindness can go a long way


Weeks turn into months

Months turn into years

Reaching the same conclusions

Gathering up the fear

Living the same delusion

Gathering up the fear


Come back
