Press Rewind

If only I could begin again
Start over with a second chance
I would, You know I would
If only I could change my life
Hit delete and do a fast rewrite
I would, You know I would
But it's far too late
'Cause I waited far too long
Pressing my luck
And now the moment's gone

Chorus:
The next time I get into
The kind of mess I always do
Gonna see it for what it is
Press pause before I ruin this
The next time I miss my cue
God please give me a clue
Before I step out of line
'Cause I don't get to press rewind

If only I could run away
From the choices that I've made
I would, You know I would
With every wrong move despite Your grace
Consequences must be faced
I would, You know I would
But it's far too hard
'Cause I'm far too scared to speak
Admit my wrongs and
Show myself to be weak

Chorus

No, I can't go back
No, I can't return
Time's a one-way street
Always going forward

No, I can't go back
No, but I can learn
Mistakes can be redeemed
Building bridges I burned

Chorus

I don't get to press rewind
I don't get to press rewind

(Part of the "If only" mini-challenge)

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Well done, very well done. I don't (typically) even like poetry--but this is--very good. I wish that fw could post the music to the song the 'cue' is taken from,(not a music person, so no idea) because, I think I'd make this a 'sing along'; just saying.

Ahh ... the many regrets of life. You caught the If Only... mini-Challenge perfectly. I really liked this, particularly the hope in this part (which I assume would be a bridge): No, I can't go back No, but I can learn Mistakes can be redeemed Building bridges I burned Well done, Laura.
