Do Over

If I could live my life again,
Without the same mistakes,
Then I might be a better man,
With one of life’s retakes.

The children call them do overs,
And they’re in every game.
Just use these words to start over
And forget all of the pain.

If I could start my life anew,
No old scars would I wear,
All my mistakes I could redo,
And no guilt would I bear.

I’d have no old pain in my life,
And I might live so wild,
Without the true love of a wife
And the gift of a child.

I’d be a different man I know,
Without all of these things,
But different’s not that great you know,
Without the love life brings.
