If I Could Turn Back Time Lyrics

If I could turn back time
If I could find a way I'd take back those words that hurt you and you'd stay

I don't know why I did the things I did I don't know why I said the things I said
Pride's like a knife it can cut deep inside
Words are...

    Definitely a love from years ago and one didn’t realize the importance of the love and relationship that was there. And Cher wonders if they got back together if it could work. Clearly, she’d like another chance, but he or she has moved on. Very sad when when you find the RIGHT ONE and let him(her) go

    I think the song was a tribute to Sony Bono. Despite the personal issues I still feel they loved each other all the same

    "If I Could Turn Back Time" is deeper than a romantic relationship. The relationship that longs to be affected is a more primal one of parents or mother, or one's child. She would give all her time to be loved liked how she now realizes she was loved. She brings her power to combine with the image of Battleship, for what she would do to have that love. The offered sacrifice of time. It is tempting, but in the end it can not be changed.

    I only wished we could turn back time because I definitely would not say the things I did and maybe we could have made it work besides the interfering family member. I wish we could turn back time and they never moved to Nevada on such a controlling level. But I will always love her even though I know she cheated.

    A woman who upset her man trying to win him back. Such a Classic. LOVE YOU CHER!!!
