Looking Back Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

You're living in a place you left behind
Going 'round in circles all the time
Can see the way ahead, it's like you're blind
So open your eyes in

Time, realign just what you got
With what you nearly had and what you want
You fall asleep and then the moment's gone
So open your eyes in time

Yeah, hard to undo time
Hard to separate my past from a rhyme
'Cause how can you separate milk from lime
Waste my time

Looking back
You always seem to be looking back
Feels like your mind's always somewhere else
You're always looking over your shoulder

Think about the places you could never be
Beauty in the faces that you never see
As you lie there sleeping, how the moment flies
So open your eyes in time

Yeah, they say life makes sense backwards
Only you got to live it forwards

Don't waste your time, no
Don't waste your time just looking back
You always seem to be looking back
Feels like your mind's always somewhere else
You're always looking over your shoulder

Looking back
You always seem to be looking back
Feels like your mind's always somewhere else
You're always looking over your shoulder

Am I the only one tryna fight off an army
Of memories, dressed up, all tryin' to harm me
I feel cocky running up the steps like Rocky
Until the past comes flashing like paparazzi

Nothing is new so I open my folder
My favorite view is over my shoulder
Everything backwards is my plight
It's landing first when in my flight

Even my tears run up my cheeks, back in my eye
Live, I die

Don't waste your time just looking back
You always seem to be looking back
Feels like your mind's always somewhere else
You're always looking over your shoulder

You always seem to be looking back
Feels like your mind's always somewhere else
You're always looking over your shoulder

You're always looking back
Over and over and over
You're always looking back
