If You Ever Come Back Lyrics - lyrics

If you're standing with your _1_
But you can't step on the train
Everything's the way that you left it I still haven't slept yet

And if you're covering your _2_ now
But you just can't hide the _3_
Still setting two plates on the counter but eating without ya

If the truth is you're a liar
When you say that you're okay
I'm sleeping on your side of the bed going out of my head now

And if you're out there trying to move on
But something pulls you back again
I'm sitting here trying to _4_ you like you're in the same room

And I wish you could give me the cold shoulder
And I wish you could still give me a hard time
And I wish I could still wish it was over
But even if wishing is a waste of time
Even if I never cross your mind

I'll leave the door on the latch
If you ever come back, if you ever come back
There'll be a light in the hall and a key under the mat
If you ever come back

There'll be a smile on my face and the _5_ on
And it will be just like you were never gone
There'll be a light in the hall and a key under the mat
If you ever come back, if you ever come back now
Oh if you ever come back, if you ever come back

Now they say I'm _6_ my time
Cause you're never coming home
But they used to say the _7_ was flat but how wrong was that now
