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

So we have to be strong, and I'm finding that hard
We have to move on, 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

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

Can't make it seem easy, when you're all that I see
Can't live in a dream and I won't serenade the truth
People are hurting and they're 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
You know I love you
And I'm never gonna give it up
I'll keep holding on to you
And I'm never gonna give it up, give it up

All that I lived for, all that I dreamed
But I cannot turn back the years
You're the water I drink, you're the air that I breathe
But I cannot turn back the years

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

But I'm never gonna give it up
No, no, no, never gonna
It's here to stay and I'm never gonna
Never gonna give it up
Never gonna, no never gonna give it up
Never gonna give it up, no I'm never gonna give it up
You know, you mean too much to me to give it up
Never gonna give it up
