Maybe You’re Gonna Come Back

The lyrics from the song “Maybe” by Ingrid Michaelson are really hitting home for me today. This song says to me that you can’t keep someone by refusing to let them go… so you let them go, and hope they might come back one day. In the meantime you get on with your life. I know that Mike is not coming back, and that I probably shouldn’t want him to. But I am still sad and I still miss him every single day. Sometimes I just want him to show up on my doorstep unannounced, envelop me in a bear hug, and tell me he came to his senses and will never walk away again.

I don’t wanna be the one to say goodbye
But I will, I will, I will
I don’t wanna sit on the pavement while you fly
But I will, I will, oh yes I will

‘Cause maybe in the future, you’re gonna come back
You’re gonna come back around
Maybe in the future you’re gonna come back
You’re gonna come back

Oh, the only way to really know is to really let it go
Maybe you’re gonna come back, you’re gonna come back
You’re gonna come back to me

I don’t wanna be the first to let it go
But I know, I know, I know
If you have the last hands that I want to hold
Then I know I’ve got to let them go

Oh, the only way to really know is to really let it go
Maybe you’re gonna come back, you’re gonna come back
You’re gonna come back

I still feel you on the right side of the bed
And I still feel you in the blankets pulled over my head
But I’m gonna wash away, oh I’m gonna wash away
Everything till you come home to me

Oh, the only way to really know is to really let it go
Maybe you’re gonna come back, you’re gonna come back
You’re gonna come back to me
