Coming back to me

I heard this song the other day for the 1st time.
It is an overlooked Airplane masterpiece.


Getting reborn isn't easy. It's like hitting the reset switch of a computer, or getting hit by a wrecking ball. My life is rebooting...:)

Oh, definitely. I LOVE this song, yet it is very overlooked on Surrealistic Pillow.
With you standing here I could tell the world what it means to love
To go on from here I can't use words, they don't say enough

Oh yeah, this song is absolutely beautiful.

Ever since I first heard Surrealistic Pillow, it's been one of my favourites.

Here are the lyrics for this beautiful song:

COMIN' BACK TO ME (Marty Balin)

The summer had inhaled and held its breath too long
The winter looked the same as if it never had gone
And through an open window where no curtains hung
I saw you, I saw you
Comin' back to me

One begins to read between the pages of a look
The shape of sleepy music
And suddenly you're hooked
Through the rain upon the trees
That kisses on the run
I saw you, I saw you
Comin' back to me

You came to stay and live my way
Scatter my love like leaves in the wind
You always say, you won't go away
But I know what it always has been
It always has been

A transparent dream beneath an occasional sigh
Most of the time I just let it go by
Now I wish it hadn’t begun
I saw you
Yes, I saw you
Comin' back to me

Strolling the hills overlooking the shore
I realize I've been here before
The shadow in the mist could have been anyone
I saw you, I saw you
Comin' back to me

Small things like reasons are put in a jar
Whatever happened to wishes, wished on a star
Was it just something that I made up for fun?
I saw you, I saw you
Comin' back to me
