I Want You Back

(Colin Hay/Michael Georgiades)

I’d be glad to give back
All I’ve ever owned
If I could have seen into the future
If only I had known
Behind these walls of separation
I have learned to live alone
But I want you
I want you back

I could clearly see the letters
But not the writing on the wall
About what had come between us
And how the mighty fall
And one thing keeps repeating
It’s the only thing I know
That I want you
I want you back
Yeah I want you
I want you back

Well I’ve taken that number
How could I have been so blind
Now I’m coming up from under
It’s you I have to find
My back is up against the ropes
Only one way I can go
And I want you

How far is the distance
Have you gone beyond the signs
Have you past the point of no return
Have you crossed that line
And it burns me like a fever
Gotta tell you one last time
That I want you
I want you back
Yeah I want you
I want you back
Yeah I want you
I want you back
Yeah I want you
I want you back
