about

I initially recorded this cover track as a pitch for a TV Show. I loved it and the team did too tbh ;) , it but sadly it wasn’t used after all. However I didn't want it to end up in a "drawer", so I asked wonderful Matt Robertson, whom I met though Anoushka while working on her latest EP, to mix it and Guy Davie, who you will spot on all my latest albums, to master it for me.

And then I had this ready-to-go track and wasn’t sure how and when to get it out into the world - well and this seems like the perfect place and time. I hope you will like it!

lyrics

If I could turn back time
If I could find a way
I'd take back those words that've hurt you
And you'd stay

I don't know why I did the things I did
I don't know why I said the things I said
Pride's like a knife it can cut deep inside
Words are like weapons they wound sometimes

I didn't really mean to hurt you
I didn't wanna see you go
I know I made you cry, but baby

If I could turn back time
If I could find a way
I'd take back those words that've hurt you
And you'd stay
If I could reach the stars
I'd give them all to you
Then you'd love me, love me
Like you used to do

If I could turn back time

My world was shattered I was torn apart
Like someone took a knife and drove it deep in my heart
You walked out that door I swore that I didn't care
But I lost everything darling then and there

Too strong to tell you I was sorry
Too proud to tell you I was wrong
I know that I was blind, and darling

If I could turn back time
If I could find a way
I'd take back those words that've hurt you
And you'd stay
If I could reach the stars
I'd give them all to you
Then you'd love me, love me
Like you used to do

Oh

If I could turn back time
If I could turn back time
If I could turn back time
Oh baby

I didn't really mean to hurt you
I didn't want to see you go
I know I made you cry, but oh

If I could turn back time
If I could find a way
I'd take back those words that've hurt you
If I could reach the stars
I'd give them all to you
Then you'd love me, love me
Like you used to do

If I could turn back time (Turn back time)
If I could find a way (Find a way)
Then maybe, maybe, maybe
You'd stay
Reach the stars
If I could reach the stars...
