Alanna Wilson – Back To When You Were Mine lyrics

Unfamiliar faces in this town,
It's all changed, and we're all grown now,
And I wonder if you ever drive through,
And think about the girl who loved you,
By a graveyard in the spring,
There I was listening, to every little word you said,
Filled with butterflies,
When I looked into those big blue eyes,
That's when you took my hand

I can't turn the leaves from red to green,
Back to when I was fourteen,
Back to when before you changed your mind,
I can't go back to those summer days,
Go back and kiss your face,
I can't go back and uncry,
I can't turn the seasons back in time,
Back to when you were mine

The trees are changing green to red,
And I'm so glad I didn't know then,
That we'd break each-other's hearts,
That what was so complete would fall apart,
But there was one day years ago,
When you were mine to hold,
When we laid under the moon,
And on that shooting star,

I wished we'd never be apart,
And we stayed there, a while on your roof,
I didn't know then that it could all end so soon

I can't turn the leaves from red to green,
Back to when I was fourteen,
Back to when before you changed your mind,
I can't go back to those summer days,
Go back and kiss your face,
I can't go back and uncry,
I can't turn the seasons back in time,
Back to when you were mine

I'm so glad I couldn't see,
That one day we'd be a memory,
That you and me would end up bittersweet

I can't turn the leaves from red to green,
Back to when I was fourteen,
Back to when before you changed your mind,
I can't go back to those summer days,
Go back and kiss your face,
I can't go back and uncry,
I can't turn the seasons back in time,
Back to when you were mine,
And if you ever drive by,
I hope you smile.
