Don't Look Back

The sun is high but you're still in bed whining
Hurting from last nights wining and dining
You want it one way but you get it another
You bitch and you moan 'cause it's such a bother


Don't look back you've got to hit the ground running
Use all your skills and all your cunning to make your way
In this world today

Don't look back 'till you get where you're going
Then you look around and find out knowing
That your life turned out
Was there any doubt

You hear the music playing in your head
A rerun of the moment when your true love said
"I'm done with you, I'm moving on"
You got the text message on your I phone
You don't have time for love anyway
Too many things to do in just one day
Places to go, things to be
Maybe there is something good on TV


You dream of those lips you were kissing
You think you might be missing some thing good
