Looking ba-a-ack over my life

I can see where I caused you strife

But I know, oh yes I know

I’d never make that same mistake again

Looking ba-a-ack over my deeds

I can see signs a wise man heeds

And if I just ha-ad the chance

I’d never make that same mistake again

Once my cup was overflowing

But I gave nothing in retu-u-urn

Now I can’t begin to te-ell you

What a lesson I have learned

Looking ba-a-ack over the slate

I can see love turned to hate

But I know, oh yes I know

I’d never make that same mistake again
