If we could travel backwards
Lyrics
If we could travel backwards
© 2008 Bruce Mills (ASCAP)


If we could travel backwards
To the place where time began
I think we'd find a lot of dreams along the way
I think we'd want to start again - and leave the world behind -
On the journey to the place where time began

I wonder what we'd see today
If tomorrow could be yesterday
If the world could spin the other way
Would we find our garden growing there - somewhere?

The garden where the rivers meet
Quiet now - the lion sleeps
The gates are closed - and no one knows
The future - that is growing there

If we could travel backwards
To the place where time began
I think we'd find a lot of dreams along the way
I think we'd want to start again - and leave the world behind -
On the journey to the place where time began

When darkness comes - the lion sleeps
Perfect kingdom - he must keep
And when he wakes - the lion makes
Another perfect day to see

But today there is no peace or harmony
The world is filled with pain and tragedy
When darkness comes - the lion roams
Far away from his garden home
Confused and lost - and all alone
The lion turns to stone

If we could travel backwards
To the place where time began
I think we'd find a lot of dreams along the way
I think we'd want to start again - and leave the world behind -
On the journey to the place where time began

If we could travel forward to the end of time
Will we find the Promised Land?
Will the rivers meet - at the end of time?
Will the lion lie down with the lamb?
Will the lion still be there - at the end of time?
