Take Back The Wounds

Backwards words healing wounds

Rewinding time back
before hurt

If I could take back what has
already happen I would

Backwards words healing wounds

Sealing up the cracks left on her
broken heart

Just like mine

The same breaking, aching inside
taking in scars

The splitting mirrors image
putting bits and pieces
back in places
where we appear clear again

Backwards words healing wounds

Eyes swallowing tears

Frowns upside down
forming at the same time
the clock rewinds

Backwards words healing wounds

If I could take back
all the bad moments
and spin back the hands to
hands holding each other
unfolding a dying rose back to bloom
I would

Backwards words healing wounds

Stealing voices
in the choices we make that
break us apart

Backwards words before breaking hearts

If only

We could start all over...
