Leo Sayer - Don't Look Back lyrics

Sayer

Some people terrified of spiders and snakes
Ladders and space – oh what a waste
Some people never climb over the wall
Think they're too small and hide their face

Some people live their life under glass
Stay in their past – sit on their ass
I'm here to tell you that life is a gas
Tomorrow's a blast so don't look back

So come on 'n pick it up
Throw some coffee in that dirty 'ol cup
Eyes on the prize – re-energise
There's another party waiting to use your sky

Push your legs into a new pair of shoes
Don't stop you'll only get the loser's blues
Out there somebody's waiting on you
To reach out and throw 'em some slack

Behind everyone lies a mistake
A terrible place – a bad break
You can't remember every bug that you killed
Every bottle you spilled – each swallowed pill

I like to think I got no enemies
Yet here comes someone with a knife in his teeth
Telling everyone he's a looking for me
For something or other I done – oh boy

I get up and I run
Dodge every bullet from the "your guilty" gun
I paid the price – had my fun
Committed my sins – I lied to my mum

I keep my head above this watery grave
Keep my eyes on the prize – pretend I'm brave
One thing I 'aint is nobody's slave
I watch my front and my back (Don't look back)

So come on 'n pick it up
Throw some coffee in that dirty 'ol cup
Eyes on the prize – re-energise
There's another party waiting to use your sky

Push your legs into a new pair of shoes
Don't stop you'll only get the loser's blues
Out there somebody's waiting on you
Reach out and throw 'em some slack (Don't look back)
