If I Could Steal Back A little Time

I wish I could go back into the past
and steal back a little time,
I got this lingering regret
hanging on my mind
Reality has already made
the decision it won't change
the shape of my hat
No matter how much I whine
Oh how I long for the cool waters
of the simply days
I tried retaining the beauty
but the world keeps
changing her ways
Ooh but if I could go back
and steal a little time,
I'd wash the worrying wrinkles
off my face,
Pour more sweet honey in the pot
to dilute her bitter taste
But reality refuses to take my cash
