Baby Come Back Lyrics


Spendin' all my nights, all my money going out on the town
Doing anything just to get you off my mind
When the morning comes, I'm right back where I started again
Trying to forget you is just a waste of time

Baby come back, any kind of fool could see
There was somethin' in everything about you
Baby come back, you can blame it all on me
I was wrong and I just can't live without you

All day long, wearing a mask of false bravado
Tryin' to keep up a smile that hides a tear
But as the sun goes down, I get that empty feelin' again
How I wish to God that you were here

Baby come back, any kind of fool could see
There was somethin' in everything about you
Baby come back, you can blame it all on me
I was wrong and I just can't live without you

Now that I put it all together
Give me the chance to make you see
Have you used up all the love in your heart
Is there nothing left for me?
Is there nothing left for me?

Baby come back, any kind of fool could see
There was somethin' in everything about you
Baby come back, you can blame it all on me
I was wrong and I just can't live without you
I was wrong and I just can't live

Baby come back, any kind of fool could see
There was somethin' in everything about you
Baby come back, you can blame it all on me
I was wrong and I just can't live without you
Baby come back

Song Explanation

This song represents Much Ado About Nothing in many ways. Throughout the story, nearly everything that happens between the characters revolves around love for one another. Much of the love is miscommunicated though and gets confused so people do not really know if they are loved or not. Even though the love is misunderstood, it seems as though the characters get excited when they hear that another loves them and they always want them back. At the end of the story, this song matches up with the story exactly. Claudio wants nothing more than for Hero to not be dead because he loves her so much and he would give anything to have her back by his side.
