I always admitted pity 'cause I was getting lonely
Oh, I wasn't lonely, oh baby without you
I always have hated pity, needed you to hold me
Oh boy you should've known me, I didn't know how to

Gone are the days of magic, those times were cool
I tried to make love not hate, what was I to do?
Oh, the [Incomprehensible] were playing, we danced all night
We were kids then till dark turned to light

Ah, ooh, rolling back the rivers in time
Can't wait, got to see his face somewhere
Ah, ooh, holding back the minutes gone by
Someday got to see his face, oh yeah

There's a feeling in my soul that sets my heart alight
I tell ya there's a feeling in my soul that tells me you're all mine
There's an arrow in my heart, just slipped at seventeen
I tell you there's a shadow in my heart that tells of what could've been

Ah, ooh, rolling back the rivers in time
Can't wait, got to see his face somewhere
Ah, ooh, holding back the minutes gone by
Someday got to see his face, oh yeah

Doesn't really matter, I felt nothing better at all, ooh, ooh
Sending him a letter, I know I won't regret it at all, ooh, ooh
Doesn't really matter, a miracle can happen for sure, ooh, ooh
I'd rather wait forever, baby, never have it at all

Ah, ooh, rolling back the rivers in time
Can't wait, got to see his face somewhere
Ah, ooh, holding back the minutes gone by
Someday got to see his face, oh yeah

Ah, ooh, rolling back the rivers in time
Can't wait, got to see his face somewhere
Ah, ooh, holding back the minutes gone by
Someday got to see his face, oh yeah
