Take me back to where I was when I did something wrong You know, the thing I did to deserve this sorrowful song Must have been something mighty dramatic To have me twisting and turning like some sort of fanatic I don't know which way to turn, cause life is coming at me from all sides The river is murky and deep and fear is just flowing with the tides Perhaps I said the wrong thing or didn't have the right conversation with the Lord Or maybe I'm paying for what I did in a past life that my current life simply can't afford Did I have the wrong friends? Was I born on the wrong date? Did I not smile often enough? Did I choose the wrong mate? Is struggle and unhappiness destined to be my fate? Can someone give me a sign, or is it already too late? Whatever it was, return me there, same time same place I'll do it right this time, just let me plead my case Just take me back to where I was I promise, I'll right the wrong And hopefully then, they'll be an end to this, my sorrowful song.
