  • I wish I could back up and start all over
    'Cause now I'd know better the best way to love her
    The words I would tell her the time I would give her
    I wish I could back up and start all over

    [Chorus]
    Time takes you places you never knew you'd be goin'
    It softens the edges of memories you're towin'
    It changes the reasons
    You wanted to hold her
    I wish I could back up and start all over

    I wish I could back up and start all over
    I'd make the first time feel like forever
    Not to be younger maybe just to be smarter
    I wish I could back up and start all over

    [Chorus]

    I wish I could back up and start all over
    Days I would take back nights I'd wanna make longer
    Moments I'd never just throw over my shoulder
    I wish I could back up and start all over

    But it's never too late to wanna do better
    Love's never easy, changes just like the weather
    Some days it's raining some are sunny and blue
    There's never perfect but there's faithful and true

    Time takes you places you never knew you'd be goin'
    It softens the edges of memories you're towin'
    It changes the reasons you wanted to hold her
    I wish I could back up and start all over
    I wish I could back up and start all over. Writer/s: ALAN JACKSON
