  • Darlin' I, I can't explain
    Where did we lose our way?
    Girl it's drivin' me insane
    And I know I just need one more chance
    To prove my love to you
    And if you come back to me
    I'll guarantee
    That I'll never let you go

    Can we go back to the days our love was strong?
    Can you tell me how a perfect love goes wrong?
    Can somebody tell me how to get things back
    The way they use to be?
    Oh God give me a reason
    I'm down on bended knee
    I'll never walk again until you come back to me
    I'm down on bended knee

    So many nights I dream of you
    Holding my pillow tight
    And I know I don't need to be alone, yeah
    When I open up my eyes
    To face reality
    Every moment without you
    It seems like eternity
    I'm begging you, begging you come back to me

    Can we go back to the days our love was strong?
    Can you tell me how a perfect love goes wrong?
    Can somebody tell me how to get things back
    The way they use to be?
    Oh God give me a reason
    I'm down on bended knee
    I'll never walk again until you come back to me
    I'm down on bended knee

    Baby, I'm sorry
    Please forgive me for all the wrong I've done
    Please come back home, girl
    I know you put all your trust in me
    I'm sorry I let you down
    Please forgive me

    I'm Gonna swallow my pride
    Say I'm sorry
    Stop pointing fingers the blame is on me
    I want a new life
    And I want it with you
    If you feel the same
    Don't ever let it go
    You gotta believe in the spirit of love
    It'll heal all things
    It won't hurt anymore
    No I don't believe our love's terminal
    I'm down on my knees begging you please come home

    Can we go back to the days our love was strong?
    Can you tell me how a perfect love goes wrong?
    Can somebody tell me how to get things back
    The way they used to be?
    Oh God give me a reason
    I'm down on bended
    Down on bended knee

    Can we go back to the days our love was strong?
    Can you tell me how a perfect love goes wrong?
    Can somebody tell me how to get things back
    The way they use to be?
    Oh God give me a reason
    I'm down on bended knee

    I'll never walk again
    Till you come back to me
    I'm down on bended kneesWriter/s: James Samuel Harris, Terry Steven Lewis
