Song facts

Keep Coming Back To Love” is a ballad recorded during the sessions for 1993 album “Off The Ground“, released as a B-Side on the “C’Mon People” single, and co-written with Hamish Stuart.

Hamish Stuart is a really good soul singer and because he’s in the group and he’s a writer, it was a natural thing to suggest, ‘why don’t we try to write together?’ […] We wrote a couple. I think our voices blend amazingly well together when we sing harmonies.

Lyrics

Ev'ry time I see you
Admit into something new
Doing unimportant things
All the foolish things that other people do

Ev'rything I'm trying
Doesn't feel quite right
And I can't help wondering
Why I ever let you out of my sight.

So I keep coming back to love
Yes, I keep coming back to love
Must I keep moving along this track
I might get restless
Won't you, please, hold me back
Won't you, please, hold me back
Because I keep coming back to love.

Ev'rywhere I get to
I'm always on my own
Tryin' to solve a mystery
And if it was up to me I wouldn't be alone.

Anytime I miss you
The feeling is so strong
But the road I'm travelling
Is filled with echoes of your sweet song.

So I keep coming back to love
Yes I keep coming back to love
Must I keep moving along this track
If I get restless
Won't you, please, hold me back
Won't you, please, hold me back
Because I keep coming back to love.

Keep coming, keep coming back to
Keep coming, keep coming back to
Keep coming, keep coming back to
Keep coming, keep coming back to
Keep coming, keep coming back to

Keep coming, keep coming back to
Keep coming, keep coming back to
Keep coming, keep coming back to
Keep coming, keep coming back to
Keep coming, keep coming back to love

Keep coming, keep coming back to
Keep coming, keep coming back to
Keep coming, keep coming back to
Keep coming, keep coming back to
Keep coming, keep coming back to

Keep coming, keep coming back to
Keep coming, keep coming back to
