I'm wantin' you back

Back when we used to say
That things would never change
Before you went away
Back to the golden days
(I'm wantin' you back)

Back when we used to ball
Back then we had it all
Now I'm just missing and reminiscing
I know you're gone
(I'm wantin' you back)

And I ain't gonna lie
It's been a long road
I've seen a lot of tears, a lot of sorrow
(I'm wantin' you back)

And if tomorrow comes
I thank the Lord again
I'm missing you until then
(I'm wantin' you back)

Rewind the clock when we was rockin'
It was you and me
I miss your laughin'
It ain't half of what it used to be

Sometimes I choose to believe
That you're right by my side
I see this in my dreams
That's nearly every night

It seems like yesterday
But it was so long ago
I hope you're smiling, hope you're writing
Hope you're not alone

I hope you're doing good
I just wanna see you fine
If I could only turn back time
(I'm wantin' you back)

Back when we used to say
That things would never change
Before you went away
Back to the golden days
(I'm wantin' you back)

Back when we used to ball
Back then we had it all
Now I'm just missing and reminiscing
I know you're gone
(I'm wantin' you back)

And I ain't gonna lie
It's been a long road
I've seen a lot of tears, a lot of sorrow
(I'm wantin' you back)

And if tomorrow comes
I thank the Lord again
I'm missing you until then
(I'm wantin' you back)

I try to keep it goin' and move along without you
But this heart of mine would not let me stop thinking hard about you
I feel so alone, can't believe that you're gone
I've been looking at your pictures all night long

It ain't the same no more no matter what nobody say
It's hard of holding back when our favorite song is playing
So now what to to do? I gotta get through through
If we could only start brand new
(I'm wantin' you back)

Back when we used to say
That things would never change
Before you went away
Back to the golden days
(I'm wantin' you back)

Back when we used to ball
Back then we had it all
Now I'm just missing and reminiscing
I know you're gone
(I'm wantin' you back)

And I ain't gonna lie
It's been a long road
I've seen a lot of tears, a lot of sorrow
(I'm wantin' you back)

And if tomorrow comes
I thank the Lord again
I'm missing you until then

I never will forget ya
And if we ever meet again
I'd tell you that I'd missed ya, missed ya
And I let you know I meant every word that I said

But I gotta do what I must do
To move on with my life, yeah
And I know you want me to
So I'm a do what's only right, yeah

I never let you go
Wanna bring back before
But that ain't reality so, oh
(I'm wantin' you back)

Back when we used to say
That things would never change
Before you went away
Back to the golden days
(I'm wantin' you back)

Back when we used to ball
Back then we had it all
Now I'm just missing and reminiscing
I know you're gone
(I'm wantin' you back)

And I ain't gonna lie
It's been a long road
I've seen a lot of tears, a lot of sorrow
(I'm wantin' you back)

And if tomorrow comes
I thank the Lord again
I'm missing you until then
(I'm wantin' you back)

And it'll be all right
Yeah, it's gonna be alright
But it'll be alright
Yeah, it's gonna be alright
But it'll be alright
(I'm gonna miss you, yeah, I'm gonna miss you)

Yeah, it's gonna be alright
(I'm gonna miss you, yeah, I'm gonna miss you)
But it'll be alright
(I'm gonna miss you, yeah, I'm gonna miss you)
