  • Come back, from the dead
    You left my, my heart here
    Say what you will and won't forget
    Express disappointment, speak your regrets, yeah
    Oh baby call out my name, I'll be where you are
    I'll be very still, step down to my heart

    Amend this broken
    If only you'd wake up from your constant possum playing
    If only you'd wake up

    I'm begging you sugar, have some leniency
    Call the president and ask him, baby, to pardon me
    And bring you back to me
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
    Whoo, whoo, whoo, whoo

    And mend this broken
    If only you'd quit this nonsense of you possum playing
    If only you'd wake up, would you wake up, would you wake up baby, yeah

    Yeah, yea
    Yeah, yea
    Yeah, yea
    Heh, heh, ho
    Whoa whoo
    Ah whoo
    Whooo, whoo, whoo
    Whoo, whoo, whoo Writer/s: HOD DAVID, MAXWELL MENARD
