"Turn Back The Clock" as written by and Hal/hampton David....
Another day is ended
And I still can't sleep
Remembering my yesterdays
I begin to weep
If I could have it over
Live my life again
I wouldn't change a single day

[Chorus]
I wish that I could turn back the clock
Bring the wheels of time to a stop
Back to the days when life was so much better

Lying here in silence
Picture in my hand
Of a boy I still resemble
But I no longer understand
And as the tears run freely
How I realize they were the best years of my life

[Chorus]

You might say it's just
A case of giving up
No
But without these memories where is the love
Where is the love

If I could have it over
Live my life again
I wouldn't change a single day

[Chorus]

Why can't I turn back the clock
Bring the wheels of time to a stop
Back to the days
Oh no no
I remember when
Life was so good
I'd go back I'd I could
Oh oh I wouldn't change a single day
Don't let the memories slip away
I wouldn't change a single day
Don't let the memories slip away

    General CommentThis song is about wanting to go back to the past. Its tune certainly helps with the theme. The words and tune combine to make a heartbreakingly nostalgic 80s song.

    General CommentI think the singer is singing about his wish to relive the past and be a child again. The theme is nostalgia and remembering the good old days.

    Unfortunately, there is no rewind button in life.
