I'll rent yesterday for promises (a repost)

I didn't want to
                and a part of me
wishes I could
        take back yesterday
keep it
         hold it
                  bring life back
                                        to what
when I said
          I won't hold the decision
                                                           to abort
against you
                  I meant it
                                 and I won't
when I say
            that this was the first
last time
              I meant it
                                and it is
I wish I could take back yesterday
but I guess I'll let you keep the past
as long as you promise I have the future
