Can’t Come Back

(Gordon)

One small step
I saw you take
Along the tube
Toward the glow
Words I formed
To call you back
You paused and spoke
Soft and low

I can’t come back
I can’t come back

I can’t come back; come back

I thought I saw
You in your chair
The shadow bent
Like you were there
I ask the dark
What would you think
Of coming back
To join me

I can’t come back
I can’t come back

I can’t come back; come back
