If I could take my time again
A different thing I'd do;
I'd take the comfort, leave the pain,
Take the sunshine, leave the rain,
If only I could start anew.
If I could be another's son
A different path I'd choose;
I'd walk along, I wouldn't run,
I'd leave the sorrow, take the fun,
If only I could re-infuse.
If I could start another hour
A different way I'd go;
I'd take the sweetness, leave the sour,
Take the jolly, leave the dour,
If only I could make it so.
If I could live another day
I'd tread a different lane;
I'd leave the turmoil, take the calm,
Leave the coarseness, take the charm,
If I could take my time again...
I'd take the sunshine, leave the rain.
