Comes To Your Love (I'm Depending On It)

Lyrics and Music ©2012 by Bill Roper


So I wrote a song on the way back from Confusion. As is not unusual in such a case, the chords and melody are still shaking down as they converge with each other. The lyrics, on the other hand, are relatively stable -- and since that's all that you can see here.

Gretchen and I had a complex relationship long before we were married. And sometimes it's still worth writing a song some twenty five years later. Even if there's no actual sci-fi or fantasy content... :)

(Chorus)
  G                               Em
I thought that I had something to say,
        C                    D
But the words have all gone away.
  G                          Em
I thought I had a message to send,
        C                         D
But Iím wasting the time that Iím spending on it.
G                      Em
If I had a chance to revise,
        C                           D
I could tell you what I see in your eyes
    G                    Em
And maybe you would understand then
        C                         D
When it comes to your love, Iím depending on it.
				

C           D             G                Em
You are the answer to the question I canít ask.
C           D              G             Em7
You are the mystery locked up inside the mask.
C               D             G               Em7
And though your history might tell you itís a sin,
    Cadd9                     Am7/G           D
Iím standing at your door and waiting to come in.

It took me far too long to learn to understand
The meaning lost inside the ring upon your hand.
And if weíre leaning toward a move that we would make,
I need to understand just how the vow would break.

(Bridge)
C          D                 G     Em7
And if you tell me that itís true,
Cadd9                    Am7/G          D
I only need to know that you believe it too.

You are the answer to the question I must ask.
Thereís so much history locked up inside your mask.
Thereís just one mystery thatís left for me and you.
Iím standing at your door Ė just tell me to come through.

(Final chorus)
C                        D
Come to your love, Iím depending on it.
C                        D
Come to your love, Iím depending on it.
