(Northern) Soulklassieker du jour: Turn back the hands of time

Tijdloze klasse van Tyrone Davis, 1970

Oh darling, I’m so lonely without you
I can’t sleep at night, always thinking about you
But if I had the chance to start all over
I would be wishing today on a four leaf clover
And leaving would be the last thing on my mind
If I could turn back the hands of time

Oh darling, I can’t hold out much longer
Oh, the pain is getting deep, and the hurt is getting stronger
But if I had just one more try
I would be yours, yours alone until the day I die
And we would have a love so divine
If I could turn back the hands of time

Oh darling, please, please let me come back home
Your love has been so good to me, baby
And I just relied without it
I can’t go on, and you’re the other half
That makes my life complete
If I had one more chance, we’d have a love so sweet
And leaving would be the last thing on my mind
If I could turn back the hands of time
