Back To You

from by David Allen Slater

/

about

I wrote this to address the misunderstandings that result between people who put most of their emphasis on communication through text and social networking. The song strives to show how much real human interaction over sensitive issues and relationships is so important compared to how a breakdown in communication between two people can happen when they rely on simple black and white text to relay their feelings.

lyrics

BACK TO YOU
words and music by David Allen Slater / BMI
Copyright © 2009 by David Allen Slater
written between July 17th and July 18th 2009

I SENT A MESSAGE
INTO CYBERSPACE
INTENDED FOR ONE MEMBER
OF THE HUMAN RACE
I KNOW THE DESTINATION
OH SO VERY WELL
BUT SILENCE WHISPERS
IT'S OWN SONG OF FARETHEWELL

YOU ASK ME SOFTLY
BUT I ANSWERED HASTILY
AND NOW I AM PONDERING
THE WAY
TO FIND
THE DOOR
THAT TAKES ME BACK TO YOU

I CHOSE A PATH
THAT I FOUND DIFFICULT TO WALK
IT'S HARD TO UNDERSTAND
WHEN THERE'S NO TIME TO TALK
IF I COULD JUST EXPLAIN
MYSELF IN FRONT OF YOU
THEN I COULD SEPARATE
CONFUSION FROM THE TRUTH

YOU ASK ME SOFTLY
BUT I ANSWERED HASTILY
AND NOW I AM PONDERING
THE WAY
TO FIND
THE DOOR
THAT TAKES ME BACK TO YOU
