Take Me Back to Doomsday

This song is by Colosseum and appears on the album Daughter of Time (1970).

Take me back to that day before light
The earth spinning faster and the air too hot
No creature had moved or showed its might
And life was a tiny dot
Nothing existed to love you
Take me back
Take me back

Take me back to the courts of kings
When the world was ruled by knights and flail
When poor people prayed for the grace of God
And Lancelot fought for the Grail
And I would have loved to have saved you
Take me back
Take me back

Take me back to the time before time
When life was ridden at the pace of a snail
When long hot summers of youth were golden
And power was a billowing sail
And I would have had time to love you
Take me back
Take me back

Take me back to the last time we met
When all I could see was the light in your eye
And the sides of your face were pale and wet
And deep inside I started to cry
And you didn't believe that I loved you
Take me back
Take me back
Take me back
Take me back
Take me, take me, take me back
Take me back
