Comeback

Album: Happiness Begins (2019)

Songfacts®:

  • This song has a dual meaning. Written by the three Jonas brothers with James Ghaleb and Sylvester Sivertsen, it could be about a relationship, but it also talks about their early days as a band playing music in church.

    Come back to me, baby, I'll come back to you
    Light up the world like only you can do
    If you're lost on the way then I'll get lost too
    Come back to me, baby, I'll come back to you


    Joe Jonas explained to Apple Music: "We use pronouns in this that veer towards relationships, but it fully represents where we were at as a band, saying: 'Come back to me. I'll come back to you.' We've been through a lot in this journey, but it led us back here."
  • The Jonas Brothers grew up in a Pentecostal church their father pastored. They reflect on these early days by incorporating a hymn within the song's chord structure and melody.
