  • Stop starin' at the rear view
    You ain't checkin' your hair
    That wheel has spun and them lights are out
    There ain't nothin' for you back there
    Stop holdin' on so dang tight 'bout time you let go
    But he's a heart breakin', let you down son of a gun
    But I ain't sayin' nothin' you don't know

    The day you stop lookin' back
    You're gonna find that the future
    Sure beats the hell outta the past
    Now he ain't no good
    I guess he's good as gone
    The day you stop lookin' back, girl yeah
    Is the day you start movin' on

    That sun's gonna come up
    It's gonna feel good
    And after all the rain and pain you've seen
    I hope you soak it up like you should
    Now and then it's gonna stir up
    When you hear that old song
    But don't let it get to ya baby
    It's only three and a half minutes long
    Well

    The day you stop lookin' back
    You're gonna find that the future
    Sure beats the hell outta the past
    Now he ain't no good
    I guess he's good as gone
    The day you stop lookin' back, girl yeah
    Is the day you start movin' on

    Is the day your start movin' on
    You ain't checkin' your hair
    That wheel is spun and them lights are out
    There ain't nothin' for you back there Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
