Don't Look Back No More

from TERRA FILIA / DAUGHTER EARTH by Stephen Bard

lyrics

There’s a river outside this cabin
Rolling through the woods
I figured heading north for mountain air
Might do some good
And it did ‘cause there’s a clarity
I've never had before
I can see the road in front of me
I don’t look back no more

Let me be just like that river
Flowing right outside my door
And the sunrise will deliver me
I don’t look back no more

The past don’t owe me nothin’
And regrets just weigh a ton
What’s the use in stressin’
Over somethin’ said and done?
I’m swinging in the moment
And I’ll play it where it lands
The future’s still unwritten
But the present’s in my hands

Not too much left here now to bank on
Don't you look back
Still one thing I know for sure
Don't you look back
Sister, all has been forgiven
I don’t look back no more

Sunrise, deliver me
I’m a river to the sea
I’m a phoenix eagle flying
I’m a newborn baby crying
I’m the dawn of a new day rising
Over the line of a blue horizon
I’m the light from a distant sun
I’m a journey just begun
On my way and feeling fine
All I’m taking is what’s mine

I’m gonna be just like that river
Streaming onward evermore
And each sunrise will deliver me
I ain't lookin' back no more
Ain’t gonna be like my friend Edith
Don't you look back
When she left Sodom and Gomorrah
Don't you look back
Wasn’t nobody’s fault
Woman just turned to salt
I ain’t looking back no more

Sunrise, deliver me
I’m a river to the sea
I’m a phoenix eagle flying
I’m a newborn baby crying
I’m the dawn of a new day rising
Over the line of a blue horizon
I’m the light from a distant sun
I’m a journey just begun
On my way and feeling fine
All I’m taking is what’s mine
