If You Ever Come Back - The Script




The Experience:

Sometimes we fight the most with the people we love the most. We hurt each other. We hurt. We break up. Then what? “There'll be a smile on my face and the kettle on, And it will be just like you were never gone.” If You Ever Come Back’s about after the break-up. Love holds out his hand and invites back. Love forgets the fights, the little things we argue about. Love’s bigger. Forgiving = Forgiving + Forever. 

Music Video:
Any real commentary would be a Spoiler. Just figure this out: who is forgiving what?

My Take:
Really meaningful song. Hope, forgiveness and love. 3 words no-one can live without.

Ask Yourself:
Would I give the girl on the video a second chance? Do I forgive? But also… Do I accept that I need to be forgiven too?


LYRICS:

If you're standing with your suitcase
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 face now
But you just can't hide the pain
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 persuade 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 kettle 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 wasting my time
Cause you're never coming home
But they used to say the world was flat but how wrong was that now

And by leaving my door open
I'm risking everything I own
There's nothing I can lose in the break in that you haven't taken

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 kettle 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

If it's the fighting you remember or the little things you miss
I know you're out there somewhere, so just remember this
If it's the fighting you remember or the little things you miss
Oh just remember this, oh just remember this

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 kettle 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

And it will be just like you were never gone
And it will be just like you were never gone
And it will be just like you were never gone
If you ever come back, if you ever come back now
