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

    Yeah, its hard to undo time
    Hard to separate my past from my rhyme
    Cause how could you separate milk from lime
    Waste my time

    Looking back
    You always seem to be looking back (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 this sleepy
    How the moment flies
    So open your eyes and:

    Yeah, they say life makes sense backwards
    But you've got to live it forward

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

    Am I the only one trying to fight off an army
    Of memories dressed up all trying to harm me
    I feel cocky, running up the steps like Rocky
    Until the past comes flashing like paparazzi
    Nothing's new so why open my folder
    My favorite view is over my shoulder
    Everything backwards, is my plight
    Its landing first when in my flight
    Even my tears run up my cheeks
    Back in my eye
    Link I die

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

    You're always looking back
    Over, and over, and over
    You're always looking back Writer/s: AYN E. ROBBINS, BILL CONTI, CAROL CONNORS, KEINAN ABDI WARSAME, RICHARD DAVID HUGHES, TIMOTHY JAMES RICE-OXLEY, TOM CHAPLIN
