I couldnít count the times I stood with telephone in hand.
Finger dialing your number, thoughts I didnít understand.
I wish that I could turn back time, change the words we said.
Undo the damage thatís been done, where hurtful words have led.
I wish I had a crystal ball to see what futureís hold.
Then lovers, they could come to me and have their fortunes told.
So they would not be forced to feel the pain thatís in my heart.
They would know ahead of time that it was best to part.
I wish I had some magic when they didnít heed forewarning.
So I could fix their broken hearts, erase the pain by morning.
I wish I had wizard's power to make the pain unreal
or special herbs and potions to quickly make it heal.
But you see if I had all these things then I could use them now.
To change the way Iím feeling and erase the pain somehow.
Though I have no flowing cape or "Lucie the Great" sign.
The only magic that I know that can cure this pain...is time.
