Should You Return
Copeland Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning | Line by Line Meaning

You see the night is all I have to make me fear
And all I want is just a love to make it hurt
Cause all I need is something fine to make me loose
Now its a funny way I find myself with you

Because this song is all I have to make me feel
And all it takes is just a love to make it hurt
And every sound erased in time could make me loose
Now its a funny way I find myself with you

[Chorus]
But now there's nothing left to do but waste my time
I never knew where to move on, I never knew what to rely upon
Now there's nothing left to say to change your mind
And if you're unhappy still I will be hanging on your line

Should you return, should you return, should you return

Because the night is all I have to make me fear
And all I want is just a drink to make it worth while
Cause all I need is someone close to make me loose
Now its a funny way I find myself with you

[Chorus]

And now there's nothing left to do to draw your eyes
(and now there's nothing left to do)
I never knew where to move on, I never knew what to rely upon
And now there's nothing left to say to change your mind
And if you're just sinking down I will be pulling on your line

[Chorus]

Should you return, should you return, should you return

Overall Meaning

The lyrics in Copeland's song "Should You Return" reflect on the feelings of uncertainty and insecurity that one might experience after a breakup. The narrator seems to be struggling to move on and is caught between wanting to be alone and wanting to be with someone who can make them feel better. The first verse describes the narrator's fear of the night, which can be seen as a metaphor for their fear of being alone. They want to find someone who will love them even though it hurts because they feel like that's better than being alone. The second verse similarly touches on the idea that the song is the only thing that makes the narrator feel anything at all, and that love (even if it's painful) is what gives their life meaning. The chorus acts as a sort of surrender to the situation, acknowledging that the narrator doesn't know how to move on or change their ex-partner's mind, but is still willing to hold onto the hope that they might come back.


In the final verse, the narrator seems to be trying to convince themselves that they can be okay on their own. They want to be able to find comfort in a drink or in just being close to someone, but they know that they're not really okay. The repeated phrase "should you return" at the end of each chorus feels like a plea or a prayer, hoping that their ex might change their mind and come back to them. Overall, the lyrics express a sense of vulnerability and confusion, with the narrator unsure of what to do next but still clinging to the possibility of reconciliation.

"Should You Return"

You see the night is all I have to make me feel,
And all I want is just a love to make it hurt.
Cause all I need is something fine to make me lose.
Now it's a funny way I find myself with you.

Because this song is all I have to make me feel,
And all it takes is just a love to make it hurt.
And every sound arranged in time can make me lose.
Now it's a funny way I find myself with you.

But now there's nothing left to do but waste my time.
I never knew where to move on.
I never knew what to rely upon.
And now there's nothing left to say to change your mind.
And if you're are unhappy still,
I will be hanging on your line should you return.
Should you return, should you return.

Because the night is all I have to make me feel,
And all I want is just a dream to make it worthwhile.
Cause all I need is someone close to make me lose.
Now it's a funny way I find myself with you.

But now there's nothing left to do but waste my time.
I never knew where to move on.
I never knew what to rely upon.
But now there's nothing left to say to change your mind.
And if you're unhappy still,
I will be hanging on your line.
But now there's nothing left to do to draw you eyes.
(But now there's nothing left to do)
I never knew where to move on.
I never knew what to rely upon.
But now there's nothing left to say to change your mind.
And if you're just sinking down,
I will pulling on your line.
But now there's nothing left to do but waste my time.
(But now there's nothing left to do)
I never knew where to move on.
I never knew what to rely upon.
But now there's nothing left to say to change your mind
And if you're unhappy still,
I will be hanging on your line should you return.
Should you return, should you return.
