Come Back To Me

Come back to me before the springtime babes,
When Owairaka has her skirt tucked high into her stockings,
So as to tip-toe softly across the platonic shelf
Come back to me on a Monday babes,
When the blue world has turned beneath you
keeping the blankets all to himself

Now I'm standing naked
(with sores all up my legs)
And I wait for you to pray,
I hold aloft this flaming torch
And scare the wolves away

Come back to me in the sacred nightime babes
And we'll slide on home past a thousand sleeping souls
on the cold and filthy street

Come back to me like that pigeon babes
That I set free so many years ago,
Whose wings that I hear beating whenever I hear your feet
