lyrics

I met a George named Mack,
He wore his heart on his sleeve,
And slept on his side,

Cuz if he lied on his back,
His bed felt like a coffin,
And he was buried alive,

Yeah, when he looked back,
And at his silly little life,
With nostalgic eyes,

Well he felt hijacked,
Like he had lost control,
And he fell from the sky


And he said,
I,
I wanna go back in time.
Yeah he said I,
I wanna go back in time


He said if I hold back,
I don't see how I,
Could ever look you in the eye,

And it's not for lack,
Of motivation,
It's for lack of trying,

Like there's rail road tracks,
And I'm smoking my last cigar,
Sitting on the rail ties,

And he said,
I,
I wanna go back in time.
Yeah he said I,
I wanna go back in time


He was a life that went all wrong,
Lost to mediocrity,
Lost to simple songs,
He was afraid of his own demise,
Hoping when is time would come,
That he would realize,

His ol' pub friends were growing old,
He wasted his life dreaming of gold,
He soon would become food for mold,
And he wasted his life inside this town,
He never took his chance to get out,
He better not pause his time is now,
It's time to grow up time to be bold,
It's time to break free of this towns hold,
I guess that's why, he began to try, to live life

He said I need gas,
To throw this car in reverse,
And go back in time,

Cuz they say grass,
Is always greener,
on the other side,

He said I think it's sad,
The way your tears,
Give you pretty eyes

Give me just one last,
Psalm or wisdom,
Before you say goodbye

And he said,
I,
I wanna go back in time.
Yeah he said I,
I wanna go back in time
