lyrics

Verse 1
There used to be a time I was filled with laughter.
There used to be a time I prayed to God.
There used to be a time I valued friendship.
There used to be a time I believed in love.
There used to be a time with empty spaces.
There used to be a place where we were lost.
So tell me all the years you think you wasted.
It’s never too late to break the clock.

Chorus
Take me back.
To the very, the very first time.
Take me back.
To the place I want to be.

Verse 2
I want to love again.
Feel again.
Hate again.
Create again.
I want to touch again.
Lust again.
Dream again.
Fail again.
I want to go back and study the mountains.
I want to paint the harvest moon.
I want to pour out my soul in poems.
I want to sing the Delta Blues.
Get lost in a maze of passion.
Ride the strip in Hollywood.
Call all my brothers and sisters.
And say “I love you, I love you
And I miss you so much.
Meet me at the temple.
Where we can dance and fight.
And find the light.
That brings us closer to home”.

Chorus
Take me back.
To the very, the very first time.
Take me back.
To the place I want to be.

Bridge
You only get one life.
But there’s plenty of choices.
So choose wisely.
So choose wisely.
You only have one voice.
But there’s plenty of stories.
So speak softly.
So speak softly.

I've spent my whole life trying to do a lot of different things but somehow I come to the same conclusion that music is all I want to do.
