ATC's Lyrical Discussion: Week 7

Recommended Posts

Since I'll be gone until next Thursday, here's next week's lyrics for you to ponder.

"Stop Lookin' Back" - Grand Funk Railroad

Stuck in the county jail

Nobody here gonna' pay my bail

Thirty days with a smelly drunk

A turn-key callin' me a dirty punk

I got to pick myself up, and stop lookin' back

And I've got to move straight ahead, stop lookin' back

Shoot for the stars when my eyes can't see the starlight

Reach for the sun in the night

Stop lookin' back at the times I was defeated

I pick myself up, I move straight ahead, I stop lookin' back

Stranded! Nothing worse

I'm livin' on coffee, I got an empty purse

I'm dreamin' 'bout blue eyes lookin' my way

Hopin' my dreams don't blow away

I got to pick myself up, and stop lookin' back

And I've got to move straight ahead, stop lookin' back

Shoot for the stars when my eyes can't see the starlight

Reach for the sun in the night

Stop lookin' back at the times I was defeated

I pick myself up, I move straight ahead, I stop lookin' back

My favorite Grand Funk song. The lyrics are so wonderful, it's the greatest "never look back on your past" song. I've always lived by the concept of "learn from your past but never look back upon it". It's a great song to listen to when something bad has happened and you need a pick-me-up to get your head straight again. When things get bad, always remember that you can make them good again by not living in the past.

I'm ignorant and I haven't heard this song but I love these lyrics... forget about the past, it's over and done and nothing's gonna change that. Move on with your life... I needed to hear that.
