I can't touch the clouds for you, I'll never reach the sun for you I've never done the things that you need done for you I've stretched as high as I can reach, I guess I'm not the one for you 'Cause I can't touch the clouds or reach the sun for you No I can't reach the clouds or touch the sun
I can't turn back time for you, and make you sweet sixteen again I can't turn your barren fields to green again And I won't sit around and talk of how things might have been again No I can't turn back time and make you young again I can't turn back time and make you young
I hope you find somebody who can do the things I didn't do And find the road I didn't find, and build a brighter world for you I hope you find somebody old enough to reach and take a hold And guide your ever changing mind, and free your ever risin' soul But I can't, No I can't
I can't look inside your mind, and see the things you're hopin' for And I can't help you chase the dream you're gropin' for You say your arms are open wide, but Lord knows who they're open for No I can't know your mind or chase your dreams with you No I can't chase your dreams or know your mind
So say goodbye and don't look back, I've had some happy days with you Sorry I can't be the one who stays with you And when they ask about me, you can say I was the one with you Who never touched the clouds or reached the sun with you No I can't reach the clouds or touch the sun
I guess it's done, I can't touch the sun for you, ooh, ooh, ooh I can't touch the sun, I can't no I can't, ooh, no, ooh, no I can't touch the sun, no lord, no, hmm, hmm....
