Come back to me

( VS. 1 )

I conceived, I bore you
held and adored you
I provided for you
all I have is yours.
you're the apple of My eye
I hear you when you cry
and I would give My very life
to keep you from losing yours

( CHORUS 1 )

..but you never take the time to talk to Me
you traded all My love for misery
you return like a dog to its vomit
who looks back instead of running from it
but still I desire for you to come back to Me
come back to Me.

( VS. 2 )

I'm always trying to tell you
just how much I love you
how many lives I could bless through you
if you would give yourself to Me.
I've been loving and merciful to you
but I won't hesitate to judge you
I'm willing to restore you
and reward you eternally.

( CHORUS 2 )

...will you break down all the walls and answer Me?
is it worth paying the price with eternity?
I'm not willing that you should perish,
but you will if your life you cherish
still I desire for you to come back to Me
come back to Me, come back to Me...
