Ghosts The Best of Bill Mumy

 

TAKE IT BACK
 
A long time ago
In a room much like this
A sailor far from sea
Was smitten by one kiss
Down through years I have heard it said
That he wished he could take it back
A shot rang out
In the middle of the night
The hero was dead
Snuffed was the light
The villain who ran cried a thimble of tears
And said he wished he could take it back
Take it back
Take it back
Say it isn't true
Take it back
Take it back
Let us start anew
 
A line was drawn
And the line was crossed
Faith was gone
Innocence lost
All through the night
She tossed in her bed
And she wished she could take it back
 
Take it back
Take it back
Say it isn't true
Take it back
Take it back
Let us start anew
 
Something's can never be retrieved
Some truths will never be believed
 
The dream ship crashed
Broken by the wheel
Little boy lost
With a heartache of steel
He danced on the sun
'Til his feet could not run
And he wished he could take it back
Take it back
Take it back
And say it isn't true
Take it back
Take it back
Let us start anew
Take it back
Take it back
Say it isn't true
Take it back
Take it back
Let us start anew
