Lyrics: Come See About Me

I’ve been crying (ooh, ooh)
‘Cause I’m lonely (for you)
Smiles have all turned (to tears)
But tears won’t wash away the fears

That you’re never ever gonna return
To ease the fire that within me burns
It keeps me crying baby for you
Keeps me sighin’ baby for you

So won’t you hurry
Come on boy, see about me
(Come see about me)
See about you baby
(Come see about me)

I’ve given up my friends just for you
My friends are gone and you have too
No peace shall I find
Until you come back and be mine

No matter what you do or say
I’m gonna love you anyway
Keep on crying baby for you
I’m gonna keep sighin’ baby for you

So come on hurry
Come on and see about me
(Come see about me)
See about you baby
(Come see about me)

Sometime’s up (ooh, ooh)
Sometime’s down (ooh, ooh)
My life’s so uncertain (ooh, ooh)
With you not around (ooh, ooh)

From my arms you maybe out of reach
But my heart says you’re here to keep
Keeps me crying baby for you
Keep on, keep on crying baby for you

So won’t you hurry
Come on boy, see about me
(Come see about me)
See about you baby
(Come see about me)

You know I’m so lonely
(Come see about me)
I love you only
(Come see about me)

See about your baby
(Come see about me)
Hurry, hurry
(Come see about me)
