never come back lyrics – church

well i came to this land where the snow and the sand
cover my footprints with ice
the cool grey sea calls me “come and be free”
and i almost take that advice
and in the night i cling to the names
of the women i wanted and the men that i blamed
and their scorn that scorches my tracks
one thing i know you can never come back
oh darling please meet me in the dark empty streets
won’t you bring me the things that i need
no-one is waiting where she used to stand
just the jagged th*rns of the weed
and in the day they drink their hot wine
and i long for the things that can never be mine
so your pretty clothes do not unpack
as plain as the day you can never come back
