I Want It Back

Album: Thank You Mr. Churchill (2010)
  • We lose a team
    You sew it down without a fight
    My heart is sinking
    And there's no life boat in sight

    Can't hide my feelings
    On the outside, looking in
    You read me like a book
    My cover's wearing thin

    I want it back
    I want it back

    Let me apologize
    For a few things I've said
    Funny how a kill is worse
    We'll always turned it hell

    Sometimes it's true
    That I don't listen when you talk
    Can't keep my eyes off you
    When I watch you walk

    I want it back
    I want it back
    Yeah, yeah

    God, when you think you have it on me
    Here comes another day to return
    I'm sad, it's useless in the moment
    Followed with the other lessons learned
    Oh yeah, oh yeah

    I know I take too much for granted
    It's time for me to make amends

    I guess the answer is to take it kinda slow
    This rug gots many knots and stains to clean, I know
    I'm looking straight ahead, my mind is open wide
    Only time will tell if she's really on your side
    Really on my side

    I want it back
    I want it back
    Yeah, yeah Writer/s: PETER KENNETH FRAMPTON
