Nate has been gone since Monday; rockin' it in Texas with the long horns and BBQ. After he's been gone a few days, I always start to sing this song in anticipation of him coming home. I know not all the lyrics apply {like the parts that say, "i was wrong" and "I was wrong"} but I still hum it gently to myself in a secret 70's child kind of shame that only a 70's child can know.

Baby Come Back
by Player

Spending all my nights,
All my money going out on the town
Doing anything just to get you off of my mind
But when the morning comes,
I'm right back where I started again
Trying to forget you is just a waste of time

Baby come back, any kind of fool could see
There was something in everything about you
Baby come back, you can blame it all on me
I was wrong, and I just can't live without you

All day long, wearing a mask of false bravado
Trying to keep up the smile that hides a tear
But as the sun goes down, I get that empty feeling again
How I wish to God that you were here

Now that I put it all together
Give me the chance to make you see
Have you used up all the love in your heart
Nothing left for me, ain't there nothing left for me

Oh dear. This song's going to be lodged in my head.
