[Choir]I won't go back, can't go back, to the way it used to be
Before your presence came and changed me
[William McDowell]Come on, somebody, lift your voice and declare it and say

Before your presence came and changed me
[William McDowell]Somebody say I won't go back, say
[Choir soft]I won't go back, can't go back, to the way it used to be
Before your presence came and changed me
