If I Could Turn Back Time Lyrics

[Intro: Cher]
If I could turn back time
If I could find a way
I'd take back those words
That've hurt you and you'd stay

[Verse 1: Cher]
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 like weapons, they wound sometimes

[Pre-Chorus: Cher]
I didn't really mean to hurt you
I didn't wanna see you go
I know I made you cry, but baby

[Chorus: Cher]
If I could turn back time, if I could find a way
I'd take back those words that've hurt you, you'd stay
If I could reach the stars, I'd give 'em all to you
Then you'd love me, love me, like you used to do
If I could turn back time

[Verse 2: Cher]
My world was shattered, I was torn apart
Like someone took a knife and drove it deep in my heart
When you walked out that door I swore that I didn't care
But I lost everything, darling, then and there

[Pre-Chorus: Cher]
Too strong to tell you I was sorry
Too proud to tell you I was wrong
I know that I was blind and darling

[Chorus: Cher]
If I could turn back time, if I could find a way
I'd take back those words that've hurt you and you'd stay
If I could reach the stars, I'd give 'em all to you
Then you'd love me, love me, like you used to do

[Bridge: Cher]
If I could turn back time
(If I could turn back time)
If I could turn back time
(If I could turn back time)
If I could turn back time
Oh, baby

[Pre-Chorus: Cher]
I didn't really mean to hurt you
I didn't wanna see you go
I know I made you cry, but

[Chorus: Cher]
If I could turn back time, if I could find a way
I'd take back those words that hurt you
If I could reach the stars, I'd give 'em all to you
Then you'd love me, love me, like you used to do
If I could turn back time, if I could find a way
And maybe, maybe, maybe you'd stay
If I could reach the stars
