[Verse 1]

Ohhhhh, oh oh oh oh
If I have a moment, I'd capture that moment
You would be right here next to me
If I have the secret, the secret to your love
I would plant your treasure beneath my heart
Lock it all up and throw away the key
I would never give it up
'Cause I was just a fool, a fool for you
When I loved you so childishly.

[Chorus]

And I want it all back
I want it all, I want it all, girl I want it all back
I want it all back
I want it all, I want it all, girl I want it all
You never miss a good thing 'til it's gone,
I want it all, now I want it all.

[Verse 2]

If there is a green light, and it's about to turn yellow
Pedal to the floor cause I know your heart is turning red
If I have the minutes, I would turn 'em into hours
And make love to your mind and not your body instead
I was just a fool, a fool for you,
That didn't know what had I until I lost you
Now every single moment that you're not here, yeah
It's evident to me that everything just seems so clear.

[Chorus]

And I want it all back (I'd rather have it all)
(Baby come back here)
I want it all, I want it all, girl I want it all back
I want it all back, I want it all, I want it all, girl I want it all
You never miss a good thing 'til it's gone,
I want it all, now I want it all.

[Bridge]

Now everything isn't everything,
If everything, everything
Isn't with you, yeah

[Chorus]

Now I want it all back,
I want it all, I want it all, girl I want it all back
I want it all back,
I want it all, I want it all, girl I want it all
You never miss a good thing 'til it's gone, I want it all,
Now I want it all back, now I want it all back,
Now I want it all back, now I want it all back

    I think it means that chris brown took is love for granted and if he could do it again then he would do everything over expecially his love

    I think it means that he wants his old life back the way it used to be with nothing wrong in his life and no complications
