Can't Look Back
by Mat Kearney

Album: January Flower


Verse 1
I was on a train out of New Mexico
Looking for a flame for my heart of coal
Sold my Nikon lens to get outta town
Don't know how deep you're in 'til you're tryna get out
She was floating like a vision down through the aisle
Mississippi queen with a Tennessee smile
The smell of cheap coffee and Jamaican rum
We watched the desert fade in the Santa Fe sun

I said I'm not feelin' right
She said, "Boy you'll be just fine
Go ahead and rest your eyes"

Chorus
'Cause you can't look back (Can't look back)
You can't look back (Can't look back)
There ain't no future in the past
And you can't look back (Can't look back)

Verse 2
With characters galore in the Sayulita sun
Pinеapple pastor with the senoritas
All thе disenfranchised kids in the room
We were baptized in the Pacific moon
Someone put a cactus up to my tongue
You can feel alive and try callin' it love
A boy with a smile handed me his keys
Said, "Go ahead and try but you'll never leave"

Someone was singin' a hymn
And the moon, it started to spin
So I jump right in

Chorus
Singin' can't look back (Can't look back)
You can't look back (Can't look back)
There ain't no future in the past
And you can't look back (Can't look back)

Bridge
The years go by like you never planned
I had missed a flight out of Birmingham
The way her yellow apron walked in the room
There was no mistake in the way that she moved
This is my boy and this is my girl
Yeah, I'll be employed 'til the end of the world
Somewhere tonight on the westbound train
I know there's wild hearts just runnin' away

That sounded just like a dream
One she's still singing to me
It was so bittersweet

Chorus
Because you can't look back (Can't look back)
You can't look back (Can't look back)
There ain't no future in the past
And you can't go back (Can't look back)
You can't look back (Can't look back)
You can't go back (Can't look back)
There ain't no future in the past
And you can't look back (Can't look back)
