"This Time" as written by and John Stephens Kawan Prather....
Ran into you yesterday
Memories rushed through my brain
Its starting to hit me
Now you're not with me
I realize I made a mistake
I thought that I needed some space
But I just let love go to waste
Its so crystal clear now
That I need you here now
I gotta get you back today

This time I want it all
This time I want it all
Showing you all the cards
Giving you all my heart
This time I'll take the chance
This time I'll be your man
I can be all you need
This time its all of me

I hit the bar every night
Looking to score a good time
Its not like I planned it
Left empty handed
Cause Im still alone in my mind
Now what will it take to feel right
Can I come see you tonight
Is there someone new now
What can I do now
Cause I need you back by my side

This time I want it all
This time I want it all
Showing you all the cards
Giving you all my heart
This time Ill take the chance
This time Ill be your man
I can be all you need
This time its all of me

Last time I wasnt sure.
This time I will give you more
I'm more mature
Ill show you
Last time I didn't know
I messed up let her let you go
I need you, don't say no

Laying alone in this room
All that is missing is you
Pick up the phone
Wont you come home

This time I want it all
This time I want it all
I' m showing you all the cards
Giving you all my heart
This time Ill take the chance
This time Ill be your man
I can be all you need
This time its all of me
All of me

    General Commenti completely agree with you, mzcreates, everything you said. you pinpointed my exact thoughts. this song connects with every emotion i feel, if only it worked this way.. that this time if you were to give your all.. it would fix things. this song has lyrics powerful enough to bring tears to your eyes. it's a man, pouring out his soul. i love this song, and i wish.. so much.. that my all was good enough.

    john did a great job.
    another hit.

    General Commentthis song is completely amazing. emotional, but amazing. word for word, line by line. it is a cry out to someone who he's let go in the past, whether it be weeks, months or years ago and it finally clicked in his heart and mind. he finally realized what he's done, what he's missing and wants to make it right the second time around with that former significant other. this song melts my heart.

    My OpinionI think that if you listen and then listen to Jar of Hearts by Christina Perri, it's like two sides of one story :)
