Subject: Help with a song - again

Written By: Acidpiss on 11/09/05 at 4:05 pm

Just had another random 80s tune pop into my head today at work and can't remember for the life of me who did it.

The only part of the tune I can recall is the chorus which contained the line (and I think the title of the song) : "come as you are, or don't come at all".

This song is from (if memory serves) the mid to late part of the decade.

Any help, as always, is greatly appreciated.

Wow. That was fast. Thanks!

Yeah, I already have "Lights Out" by him in my mp3 file. Didn't know he had any other hits.

Time to go download it. :)

Thanks again!
