No Goin' Back

I found your picture in a drawer just yesterday
It brought back a flood of memories
Just for a moment I was wishing you were here
But some things were never meant to be

'cause you never wanted to be any more than friends
Or be in love with anyone
I broke the rules when I confessed how much I cared
And you took off just as fast as you could run

But I'm not looking over my shoulder
I'm not living in the past
Everyday your trail’s a little colder
There's no goin' back
There's no goin' back

We used to talk along the river late at night
Skipping stones, lying in the sand
I always figured that one day you'd come around
But I guess I never had a chance

Well, I'm not looking over my shoulder
I'm not living in the past
Everyday your trail’s a little colder
There's no goin' back
There's no goin' back

I’m not sittin’ up nights
Since I found your black & white
And though your heart remains a mystery to me
That’s ancient history

No I'm not looking over my shoulder
I'm not living in the past
Everyday your trail’s a little colder
There's no goin' back
There's no goin' back
