Liner Notes: 

Quick middle of the night write
Morning may add clarity as I am not sure this works

Structure is different - thinking about time travel and ruminating about love lost which often becomes circular especially over a beer / those would / should/ could a...

Lyrics: 

V1
sad tears
still spill
in beers
memories
haunt mirrors

V2
heartaches
still fill
up plates
memories
predict fates

PC
tears and heartaches
memories and mirrors
doesn't mean I don't
wish that you
were still here...

C
if I could travel
back in time
I would
buy a ticket today

if I could take back
old mistakes
I should
seek amends to pay

if I could prove my
love to you
I would
do more than say

If I could erase bad
memories
I should
start right away

L
if I could I
really would
and I know
that I should
love you
better

B
love you
how you want...
how you need
to be loved
because that's
how I want
how I need
to love you

L
if I could I
really would
and I know
that I should
love you
better

C
if I could erase bad
memories
I should
start right away

if I could prove my
love to you
I would
do more than say

if I could take back
old mistakes
I should
seek amends to pay

if I could travel
back in time
I would
buy a ticket today

PC
tears and heartaches
memories and mirrors
doesn't mean I don't
wish that you
were still here

V2
heartaches
still fill
up plates
memories
predict fates

V1
sad tears
still spill
in beers
memories
haunt mirrors

I think this works quite well. It flows with ease. Very reflective and wishful. Also full of sadness. It's really moving.

Lovely intersection of the two prompts here. The sincere wish to make amends is palpable in your words. Very effective writing; I feel the wistful longing to make things right.

I think it works too, to me it had more of a slow waltz hesitation feel, a lot of different parts in the song, would be an interesting listen.
