Could've given you everything that you need
But I cannot turn back the years
The perfect love was all you wanted from me
But I cannot turn back the years

[One]
So we have to be strong
And I'm finding that hard
We have to move on
But no matter how hard I try
If your heart's in pieces
You look for the truth
And when I look
Deep down inside I know
It's too bad I love you

Too bad I love you
Too bad x2
Too bad x2 baby
Too bad x3

Sometimes
It hits me in the morning
It hits me at night
That I cannot turn back the years
So I look out my window and turn off my light
But I cannot turn back the years

Can't make it seem easy
When your all that I see
Can't live in a dream
And I won't serenade the truth
People are hurting and their looking to me
And I look at you
There's nothing more to say
It's too bad I love you

But I'm never gonna,
Give it up x12

All that I live for and all that I dream
But I cannot turn back the years
Your the water I drink, your the air that I breathe
But I cannot turn back the years

Repeat [One]

But I'm never gonna,
Give it up x3
(And you know I love you and I'm never gonna_
Give it up x3
(I'm holding on to you)
Give it up x3
(No matter how far I go)
Give it up x3
(Down this lonely road)
Give it up x6 [fade]
