I remember being kissed
when love was just a wish
Time was on our side
and death was just a myth
Well I got to wishing
and I felt the weight of time
Then love came around and I died

How do you get 'em back
when they say this is the last time?
How do you make it last
when they're gone?
How do you fuel the fire
when they are pouring water on the wood?
How do you get 'em
how do you get 'em back?

If you got a lover who failed you
it don't mean they're worth leaving
Some lovers would never hurt you
that don't mean they're worth keeping
I ain't saying I was right
but I know we ain't wrong
and I am breaking my back to get you home

Oh, how do you get 'em back
when they say this is the last time?
And how do you make it last
when they're gone?
And how do you fuel the fire
when they are pouring water on the wood?
How do you get 'em
how do you get 'em back

And I'm losing my mind
cause I'm losing my girl
She's a delicate flower in a desolate world
And I'm losing my mind
cause I'm losing my girl
She's a delicate flower in a desolate world

Oh, how do you get em back
and how do you make it last?
And how do you fuel the fire?
How do you fuel the fire?
How do you fuel the fire?
How do you get em back
when they say it's the last time?
How do you make it last when they're gone?
