Song Lyrics - Don't Look Back




This week I'm looking at Don't Look Back by Boston. Another favorite and it has a little story behind it. My aunt used to live with us when I was a kid, for a while, and she had these rock albums. This one always caught my eye due to the amazing cover illustration (and don't laugh- but it was a long time before I realized that it was a guitar on the cover and not just a spaceship). Not to mention the soaring harmonies, the amazing guitar sounds (seriously, this sounded like space rock to me) and perhaps most of all- the message. It's such a positive, life affirming song. I feel like it's a brand new day when this song comes on, or like there's an open road stretching out to the horizon, which clearly is what the lyrics are trying to convey. This is a feel good song, to me, in the truest sense of the word. 

 So give it a listen and see what you think. Does it make you feel better, knowing the words? For me it sure does.  



Lyrics

Don't look back 
A new day is breaking 
It's been too long since I felt this way 
I don't mind where I get taken 
The road is calling 
Today is the day 

I can see
It took so long just to realize 
I'm much too strong 
Not to compromise 
Now I see what I am is holding me down 
I'll turn it around 

Yes I will 

I finally see the dawn arrivin'
I see beyond the road I'm drivin' 

It's a new horizon and I'm awakin'
I see myself in a brand new way 
The sun is shinin' 
The clouds are breakin'
Cause I can't lose now, there's no game to play 

I can tell 
There's no more time left to criticize 
I've seen what I could not recognize 
Everything in my life was leading me on 
But I can be strong 

Yes I can 

I finally see the dawn arrivin' 
I see beyond the road I'm drivin' 
Far away and left behind 
Left behind 

Oh the sun is shinin' 
And I'm on that road 

Don't look back 
A new day is breakin'
It's been so long since I felt this way 
I don't mind where I get taken 
The road is calling 
Today is the day 

I can see 
It took so long just to realize 
I'm much to strong
Not to compromise 
Now I see what I am is holding me down 
I'll turn it around 

Oh yes I will 

I finally see the dawn arrivin' 
I see beyond the road I'm drivin';
Far away and left behind 

Don't look back
Don't look back
Don't look back
Don't look back

Sunday Post #302

Not a lot to report this week. I'm still watching season two of The Rain and Riverdale as well. Some shows are starting to come back to Netflix- Jessica Jones, Dark- so there is definitely some binging in my future! And the first episode of Big Little Lies season two was awesome- you can see my thoughts on it here. In fact I had more fun with that episode than any of the Game of Thrones episodes this season. Also the World Cup is underway and I'm looking forward to seeing some of that.  

I just started The Favorite Daughter- so far so good- and I have a few long awaited books coming up soon. It seems to go like that- I'll have a period where a bunch of books I want are coming out, and then some sparse stretches. Ah well. Oh, and speaking of the World Cup, I saw this article on the "soccer girl" aesthetic. Interesting (and apparently it's soccer girl instead of soccer woman because that's already the accepted term?) Anyway... it's the weekend! Enjoy.

Oh and if you want to read an adorable quick story about a kelp dragon (seriously- it's awesome) go here. It's based on one of the images I linked to below, and it's adorable. And it's only a few paragraphs too.
