COME AS YOU ARE

Music by Mats Byström & Anders Holst.

Lyrics by Gordon Chambers & Anders Holst

Seems like almost yesterday

The first day that we met

You were here, there and everywhere

How could I forget?

 

But now, the power of your stillness

Is your greatest gift of all!

We transcended time and space

All those curtain calls

 

I know you had to go

Through giant leaps of wonder

You were on your way

And the whole world was your stage

 

But you’ve come, as you are 

Let me love you better

You will be my star tonight

Shine on me, come morning light

 

You’ve come, as you are

And I don’t fear tomorrow

This time I’ll be right be your side

No goodbyes, only second tries

Now is the time to come back as you are

 

After champagne and laughter

And flights around the world

A deafening sound of silence

And emptiness at home

 

You were vibrant for the camera

Applause always well earned

You flew so close to heaven

And learned that the sun can burn

 

And yes, I let you go

Through giant leaps of wonder

Cause you were on your way

And the whole world was your stage

 

But you’ve come, as you are

Let me love you better

You will be my star tonight

Shine on me, come morning light

 

You’ve come, as you are

And I don’t fear tomorrow

This time I’ll be right be your side

No goodbyes, only second tries

Now is the time, to come back as you are

 

- solo -

 

Come as you are

And I don’t fear tomorrow

This time I’ll be right be your side

No goodbyes, only second tries

Now is the time, to love you as you are

Now is the time, to come back as you are

Now is the time, just come back as you are
