Lyrics - Can't Turn Back


Knew he was a misfit,

Since the age of seventeen

He had to do it his way they said,

He should be quarantined

He went looking to the East,

He went looking to the West

He was looking for the courage,

To see which way was the best.

Can't turn back, Oh no

Look out on his right,

He would look out on his left

He would look out in the distance,

Where he could see the wilderness

When the thunderhead approached,

He would pull off to the side

And when the sun broke through,

He would get back out and ride

Cause you can't turn back....

Try to see the forest for the trees,

The wind storm for the breeze

No one ever said that it would be that easy

You make your way through the debris,

Stand up for your beliefs

Even though they all might say you're crazy

He always had the feeling,

He would get back out alive

But the more that he sees of it,

Then the less he fantasizes

Though he's lost a bit of freedom,

He has traded it for love

Knows that he'd fight for it,

If that push came to shove

Cause you can't turn back.....
