Don’t Look Back

Don’t Look Back (Trina’s Song)

© Jon Davis 2019


You returned to collect your things but your house was empty

The man you loved disappeared without a trace

He took all your worldly possessions with him

And your existence before that moment had been erased


Your passport, your heirlooms, your childhood photos

He took everything he could to make you break

How he cleaned out your bank account, nobody knows

And he even took your little boy’s pet snake


CHORUS

Have no regrets; only memories

And remember that the past is in the past

Time spent looking back is time you don’t spend looking forward

The pain you feel was never meant to last


You faced the judge a decade ago with your freedom on the line

That’s when you put your happiness on the shelf

You never went to prison yet you’re still doing time

You work hard and play harder but won’t forgive yourself


Your trial seems like yesterday but it was a billion tears ago

And you still punish yourself in every way

What happened then doesn’t matter now, so you can let it go

People love you for who you are today


CHORUS

Have no regrets; only memories

And remember that the past is in the past

Time spent looking back is time you don’t spend looking forward

The pain you feel was never meant to last


BRIDGE

It’s time that I rode 2 wheels west to freedom

And your time has come to get a bag packed

Throw your leg on over and hang on bloody tight

Our only rule is … ‘Don’t look back’


CHORUS

Have no regrets; only memories

And remember that the past is in the past

Time spent looking back is time you don’t spend looking forward

The pain you feel was never meant to last


OUTRO – repeat chorus to fade with motor cycle sound effects
