"Rewind" as written by Brian Andrew Leiser, Hugh Thomas Morgan and Mark William Reid....
There are many things that I would like to say to you
But I don't have the words in my head
Days are passing by and all the leaves are changing too
But time won't change the things unsaid

'Cause everything is different now
I'd really like to tell you how

How I wanted you here by my side
I know what I said but I lied
It looked like a laugh but I cried
Oh, I wish I could push rewind

Oh, stupid pride it just can't hide the holes inside my heart
'Cause I need you here with me
Oh, I wish that I could take it back, I'd go back to the start
And tell you all the things that I feel

'Cause everything is different now
I'd really like to tell you how

How I wanted you here by my side
I know what I said but I lied
It looked like a laugh but I cried
'Cause I wish I could push rewind

I saw you on the corner holding hands with someone new
Happy as a boy could be
Love was in your eyes and yeah she looked the same way too
It's funny that was almost me

Now I wanna be there by your side
I know what I said but I lied
I wanted to laugh but I cried
'Cause it's too late to push rewind

Oh no, oh no, no, no, no
No, no, no, no, no
I know what I said but I lied
Oh no, oh no, now I cried

Just too late, too late, too late, too late, too late
Oh no, it's just too late, too late, too late, too late
I can't push rewind, oh no, no
It's too late

    General CommentThis is my favourite song of her, but I like all of her songs on Bible Belt.

    This is a story about someone regretting decisions of the past, but correcting the mistakes is already impossible. I guess it's pretty easy to understand her, especially when you are the person who broke up, realising it was a mistake. I've never been in such a situation but this song gives a pretty good impression on how you could feel....

    General CommentThis song I love to hear. I've never been through it but I love how she captures how it feels. She broke up with him for a stupid reason and now she wants him back. But its too late because he moved on. The shoe is actually on the other foot, because usaually its about the boys wanting the girl back. She wish she could take it all back. She wish she never broke up with him "I wish that I could press rewind." And she finally relizes that its too late at the end. "Saw you on the corner holdin hands with someone new, happy as a boy could be, love was in your eyes, and she looked the same way too its funny that was almost me." Kind've sad, but still touching.

    General CommentWonderful singer,,, tear-heart-to-pieces lyrics...

    Especially these words...
    There are many things that I would like to say to you
    But I don't have the words in my head
    Days are passing by and all the leaves are changing too
    But time won't change the things unsaid
    Oh, I wish that I could take it back, I'd go back to the start
    And tell you all the things that I feel
