I'll Just Come Back Again
  

Dead man’s soul wanders alone

Looking for a place called home

You hear him knockin…

But you don’t let him in

Don’t you know he’ll just be back again

Oh, come with me let’s take a ride

I’ve got two tickets for the other side

One for you and one for me

Come on, this is your chance to be really free?

 

Knock, knock, knock

Knuckles on the door

Knock, knock, knock

I’ve been here before

Knock, knock, knock

It’s time to let me in

It’s not a lie, there is no sin

Don’t pretend you don’t know me

I’m your lover…I’m your friend

I heard your cries, you called my name

Now, don’t close your eyes and hide in shame

Open the door, welcome me in

Kiss me once before this ends 

 

Heaven’s burning, the gates are coming down

Hurry, I’m your only chance to get out of town

Pack your bag, lock your door

Take my hand, trust me just once more

Don’t be scared, don’t make me wait

Remember I told you, it’s never too late

I’m right here beside you where I belong

You see I still love you…I’ve loved you all along

 

Knock, knock, knock

Knuckles on the door

Knock, knock, knock

I’ve been here before

Knock, knock, knock

It’s time to let me in

Don’t pretend you don’t know me

I’m your lover…I’m your friend

You said you trusted me

Was that a lie, another sin?

Don’t close your eyes, let me in

You know I’ll just come back again

 

I’ll whisper words you need to hear

I’ll wrap my arms around all your fear

Even the devil can wear a pretty face

Come on, let me show you my place

It’s not filled with rainbows and stars

It’s just like home, its right where you are

All you have to do is take deaths hand

See it’s so easy, oh, ain’t life grand?

 

Knock, knock, knock

Knuckles on the door

Knock, knock, knock

I’ve been here before

Knock, knock, knock

It’s time to let me in

Don’t pretend you don’t know me

I’m your lover…I’m your friend

You said you trusted me

Was that a lie, another sin?

Don’t close your eyes, let me in

You know I’ll just come back again

 

I’ll take you to a land that’s neither up nor down

A place where you don’t have to smile or frown

A haven for the chosen few

The perfect world for me and you

No closing time, no last call

No barricades, no hidden wall

No endless rhyme, no final song

A place lost in time, without right or wrong

 

Knock, knock, knock

Knuckles on the door

Knock, knock, knock

I’ve been here before

Knock, knock, knock

It’s time to let me in

Don’t pretend you don’t know me

I’m your lover…I’m your friend

You said you trusted me

Was that a lie, another sin?

Don’t close your eyes, let me in

You know I’ll just come back again

Thanks for reading & commenting! I appreciate the feedback and I think that's the most important thing for writers - to know that somebody connects with something you have written!

There are moments deep in the night, between wakefulness and sleep, I feel someone's touch or I see someone coming up the walk. I think that's the closest we get in this life... I also remember when I first experienced acute grief with the loss of my mother I felt the world to be too painful and momentarily wished to join her. Beautifully put--you've done it again!

Synopsis
Lyrics I have been working on. They are stuck in my head & since I can't get them out and I'm tired of my vision blurring...I decided to post and hope for some objective input to put them to rest. The chorus is what is really bugging me...there's something just not right but I can't pinpoint it...help please!
