Music: Joey Landreth

Dan Herman, Kiva Simona, Tod Hughes, MindTheGap, GTEdwards

Can’t Go Back

Our roots so firmly anchored
Make memories that last
Where longings for the future
Meet echoes from the past
I left you like the paint
That peels from long neglected walls
It wasn’t out of malice
A heart bruises when it falls

If I could grab a clock turn it back
When healing all the pain
Oh you know I would
You know we can’t go back there again

When people go their separate ways
For better or for worse
A vow that seemed so clear
Now hangs there like a curse
It’s not for lack of trying
There’s no point in laying blame
We could start this chapter over
But the end is just the same

If I could grab a clock turn it back
When healing all the pain
Oh you know I could
But you know we can’t go back there again

I now assess the damage
Walking on soles worn clear through
If only to mark the passage
Of time spent with you
Ours was a spiral downward
A leaf fallen from a tree
How could something so light
Land so heavily

If I could grab a clock turn it back
When healing all the pain
You know I would
Oh you know we can’t go back there again
Oh you know I would
But you know we can’t go back there again
