BACK HOME






If I had the power to turn back the clock, 
Go back to that house at the end of the block.   
The house that was HOME when I was a kid, 
I know that I’d love it more now than I did.  


If I could be back there at my mother’s knee, 
And hear once again all the things she told me,
I’d listen as I never listened before, 
For she knew so well just what life had in store.


And all the advice my dad used to give, 
His voice I’ll remember as long as I live; 
But it didn’t seem really important then;
What I’d give just to live it all over again.


And what I’d give for the chance I once had, 
To do so much more for my mother and dad; 
To give them more joy and a little less pain; 
A little more sunshine - a little less rain.


But the years roll on and we cannot go back, 
whether we were born in a mansion or in a shack; 
But we can start right now - in the hour that’s here,
To do something more for the ones we hold dear.


And since time in its flight is travelling so fast; 
Lets not spend it regretting that which is past; 
But let’s make tomorrow a happier day 
By doing our “good to others” TODAY.
