Lyrics: Mickey Hart, Andre Pessis

A new song introduced by the Mickey Hart Band in May 2013.

I want it back
I want it back
I want it back
I want it back

Correct me if I'm wrong
You can't give my life away
You took it from me
On that cold December day

You said you were my friend
You can trust me to the end
But life's a give and take
And all you did is take

I want it back
I want it back
You took the tears, you took the years
I want it back

I want it back
I want it back
You took my name, you took my love
I want it back

You can't give away
What's not yours to give
It's my life to live

I want it back
I want it back
I want it back
I want it back

I saw that strange look in your eye
While sneaking up on me
I thought you were on my side
And wanted to believe

I gave you heart and soul
And did without regret
Took my treasure, took my gold
And preached forgive and forget

I want it back
I want it back
You took the tears, you took the years
I want it back

I want it back
I want it back
You took my name, you took my love
I want it back

You can't give away
What's not yours to give
It's my life to live

I want it back
I want it back
I want it back
I want it back

I won't blink an eye or two
Though the payment's overdue
Read the writing on the wall
Rise before the fall

I want it back
I want it back
I want it back
I want it back

When the reaper comes to get me
Steal my life away
I won't let it upset me
I'll be on my way

I'been honest with you
Can you say the same
When we vanish from the earth
Who'll remember your name

I want it back
I want it back
You took the tears, you took the years
I want it back

I want it back
I want it back
You took my name, you took my love
I want it back

I want it back
I want it back
You took my name, you took my love
I want it back

You can't give away
What's not yours to give
It's my life to live

I want it back
I want it back
I want it back
I want it back
