Ingrid Michaelson – Time Machine lyrics

You lit the fire, then drank the water
You slammed that door, and left me standing all alone.
We wrote a story, we turned the pages
You changed the end like everybody said you would

Pre-chorus:
I should have seen it coming
It should have sent me running
I swear I could be loving you.

Chorus:
If I had a time machine
And if life was a movie scene
I'd rewind, and I'd tell me, “run! ”
We were never meant to be
So if I had a time machine
I'd go back, and I'd tell me, “run, run! ”

I got your letter, I got your words
I stacked them higher,
And lit 'em all and let 'em burn,
Your broken "sorrys" don't mean a thing
You made that bed
Good luck falling back asleep

Pre-chorus:
I should have seen it coming
It should have sent me running
That's what I get for loving you.

Chorus:
If I had a time machine
And if life was a movie scene
I'd rewind, and I'd tell me, “run! ”
We were never meant to be
So if I had a time machine
I'd go back, and I'd tell me, “run, run! ”

Oh, your love it got me higher
Then it drove me off the world
But the higher up you go, the further you will fall
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

Chorus: (x2)
If I had a time machine
And if life was a movie scene
I'd rewind, and I'd tell me, “run! ”
We were never meant to be
So if I had a time machine
I'd go there, and I'd tell me, “run, run! ”
