Backward, Turn Backward - Lyrics

Backward, turn backward, oh time in your flight
Make me a child again, just for tonight
Bring back warm summers and dreams of the past
Slowing each moment that now moves so fast
Take from my forehead the furrows of care
Smooth all the silver threads out of my hair
Show me green gardens of beauty and light
Take me away to these places tonight

Backward, turn backward, oh tide of each year
Leave me with family and friends that are dear
Strike up the band with sweet music and song
Play a fine tune that will last a life long
Running down pathways that pass by the sea
Laughing at nothing, we're once again free
Dancing and twirling beneath the moonlight
Take us away to these places tonight

Many a summer, the grass has grown green
Blossomed and faded, our faces between
Years have flown by, but it often shall seem
All of our years have been only a dream
Years have flown by, by it often shall seem
All of our years have been only a dream

Based on the poem "Rock Me to Sleep" by Elizabeth Allen
