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
