About Turn Back the Hands of Time

"Turn Back the Hands of Time" is a song recorded by American R&B singer Tyrone Davis. The song was co-written by Jack Daniels and Bonnie Thompson and produced by Willie Henderson. Daniels and Thompson wrote "Turn Back the Hands of Time" based on the relationship problems that Daniels was having at the time. Daniels had co-written Davis's 1968 hit "Can I Change My Mind" and the recording session for "Turn Back the Hands of Time" included some of the same musicians from "Can I Change My Mind". "Turn Back the Hands of Time" was released as a single in February 1970 and became Davis's second major hit, spending two weeks at number one on Billboard's R&B Singles chart and reaching number three on its Pop chart. The single was also certified gold by the RIAA for sales of one million copies. "Turn Back the Hands of Time" is from the album of the same name that MTV says "ranks among the best soul LP's of its time".

Oh darling, I'm so lonely without you
Can't sleep at night, always think about you
But if I had the chance to start all over
I would be wishing today on a four leaf clover
And leaving you with the last thing on my mind
If I could turn back the hands of time

Oh darling, I can't hold out much longer
Oh, the pain's so deep, and the hurt is getting stronger
But if I had just one more try
I would be yours, yours alone until the day I die
And we would have a love so divine
If I could turn back the hands of time

Oh darling, please, please let me come back home
Your love has been so good to me, baby
And I just relied without it
I can't go on, and you're the other half
That makes my life complete
If I had one more chance, we'd have a love so sweet
