Jonathan East - If I Could Do It Over Lyrics
Well, I came in ‘bout the break of dawn
You still had the porch light on
And in my drunken state of mind
Well, I said some things that weren’t so kind
When it comes to words, you know I’m not that good
But, I’d do things different now, baby, if I could.
Well, I’d turned around, I’d held my tongue
I’d made you see you’re the only one
And, I’d loved you like I’ve never done before
Well, I’d said I’m wrong, I’d said you’re right
I’d took your hand and I’d held it tight
And I wouldn’t let go ‘til the room felt a little less colder
If I could do it over.
Now, there’s a honky tonk at the edge of town
And every night that’s where I’m found
I soak my mind in the alcohol
But, it don’t seem to help at all
I cut loose the only one who ever cared for me
If I could go back now, I’d do things differently.
Well, I’d be with you at home
And, I’d take back every word I’d said, that ever came out wrong
If I could do it over, I’d loved a little more
And, I’d done my best to be the man that you’re looking for.
