Don't Look Back

Out across the ocean she’ll be sailing
Out under the open sky she’ll wave
The clouds surround her now and she is lost to you
From far away

But here inside a dream she comes a’walkin’
Smiling in her old familiar way
Her eyes look somehow different they implore you
As if to say
Don’t look back
Don’t look back

You made a promise that you’d always love her
She made a promise that she’d always stay
But promises are broken in a heartbeat and then
They fade away

How much time is time enough for sorrow
How long can you linger in the rain
When the fog is lifting and her memory lets you
Love again
Don’t look back
Don’t look back

I will go on living with this yearning
I will go on wanting till you don’t want her
I will go on dreaming that we’re lovers until I know
For sure, that you
Don’t look back Don’t look back
Don’t look back Don’t look back
