I Wish I Could Back Up Lyrics

by Alan Jackson

I wish I could back up and start all over
'Cause now I'd know better, the best way to love her
The words I would tell her, the time I would give her
I wish I could back up and start all over

Time takes you places you never knew you'd be goin'
It softens the edges of memories you're towin'
It changes the reasons you wanted to hold her
I wish I could back up and start all over

I wish I could back up and start all over
I'd make the first time feel like forever
Not to be younger maybe just to be smarter
I wish I could back up and start all over

Time takes you places you never knew you'd be goin'
It softens the edges of memories you're towin'
It changes the reasons you wanted to hold her
I wish I could back up and start all over

I wish I could back up and start all over
And days I would take back, nights I'd wanna make longer
Moments I'd never just throw over my shoulder
I wish I could back up and start all over

But it's never too late to wanna do better
For love's never easy, changes just like the weather
Some days it's raining, some are sunny and blue
And there's never perfect but there's faithful and true

Time takes you places you never knew you'd be goin'
It softens the edges of memories you're towin'
It changes the reasons you wanted to hold her
I wish I could back up and start all over
I wish I could back up and start all over
