"Rewind" as written by Brian Andrew Leiser, Hugh Thomas Morgan and Mark William Reid....
It seems just like yesterday was the first time that I heard You call my name
Since then, so much has changed
I'm still the same man that I was before
Knowing that I can be without anything scares me away from being alone
Now, that I know what's going on
I can look back and see You
And I made You wait, as I turned away

If I could rewind, watch all my life
Just pass me by, I could see You
If I could rewind, I'd take back the lies
And all of those times I hurt You

I don't know if I'll ever know exactly how much that I hurt You
Knowing that hurts me everyday
If I could rewind, I would take it away
And not make You wait, and I won't walk away

I want to take back all those lies
I want to take back all those times
I want to show You with my life that I'm here for You

    General CommentI am almost brought to tears each time I hear this song. It reminds me of my past. It reminds me of every thron on my Savior's head, the nails in his body, and ever whipping he took for me. However, I know that His physical suffering is NOTHING compared to what the emotional pain I alone have caused him.

    We need to run to Jesus, with our arms, hearts, and minds open to accept Him and learn from Him.

    General Comment"And not make You wait, and I won't walk away"

    Can we MAKE God do anything. Is He not all-powerful? Doesn't He do things in His time?

    General CommentWell im going to take it from 2 points of view
    1 - a non religious
    and 2 - a religious
    P.S. I cant help but come to tears from this song, it reminds me too much of friends that brought me back to loving music.
    Point 1 - a couple or a set of friends were inseperable until they realize how fragile their relationship was, a wrong mistake costed their entire love and or friendship, whatever the case, and the one who made the mistake says if s/he could rewind, they would see them, and wish they didn't do what they did.
    Point 2 - If they could rewind they'd see Jesus being nailed upon the cross as he was beaten to death, and he sacrificed himself for all of us.
    never the less, i am atheist yet i love this song.

    General CommentJust reading the lyrics, I can't see any jesus references.

    PS. Also, 'him' is spelt with a lower case. His name is not 'Him', it's Jesus. You don't start ANY english sentences with 'Him" either. Therefore, it must be a lower-case 'h'.

    Some people, no knowledge at all.

    General CommentI think thAT the lyrics may not say anything about jesus but read between the lines.I think that the person they sing about is Jesus. i think that they're saying that they wish they could go back in time to delete the times they may have hurt him by walking away or sinning.

    General Commentwell they are a werry religius band but i personaly would like to think as this song the way dax did in point 1, 2 verry close friends that have been along side eachoter from the start of theyr life basicly... then as happens so often they become teenagers and disside to take it to the "next level" witch in the end ruins the friendship and love ... leaving both hurt but usualy one more hurt than the other seen this case happen in my friend group .. it aint pretty loosing a life long friend due to "curiosity" ot "wanting to TRY new things" is a bad way to loose a friend :/
