YOU BETtER START COMING AROUND

 

somebody is writing a letter home  - they miss you - they are going on a long trip - they hope everything is going to be ok - they love you

You Better Start Coming Around


I wish I could lie in your arms tonight

I wonder if I'd married you

would I still be as lonely as tonight

It's hard to say what's filled my heart

I'm trying to pull it all together baby

but it just falls apart

You know someday baby, love is coming

you won't know where or how

and if you can't see what's going down

you better start coming around


Do as you're told you'll get your reward

I wonder if there's something else

that we could do with all these swords

Am I making sense? Is there any way to tell

is there anyway to fade away

or maybe pray to try and break this spell

You know someday baby, love is coming

I don't know where or how

and if you can't see what's going down

you better start coming around


And could I kill? and still sleep with you at night

could I look you in the eye and say

that I did just what I believed was right

And would it change the way you look at me

And would you say darling it's strange

but you're not the man you used to be

You know someday baby, love is coming

I can’t say where or how

and if you can't see what's going down

you better start coming around


Another day out on patrol

these days it's kind of hard with all the heat

to keep your self control

I've tasted sweat - gunpowder and blood

There's a body lying leaking in the dust

and turning it to mud

I did what I did  - I'm not afraid to die

and if you believe that last line

well I'm sorry but it was a lie

Step out into the dark - the wonder of it all

Will I see Jesus or Mohammed - is there heaven?

or just nothing at all

You know someday baby love is coming -

I can't say where or how

And if you can’t see what’s going down

if you can’t see what’s going down

if you can’t see what’s going down
