Don’t Look Back


words and music by Jan Best and Rick Paul

You pass by the homeless but don’t look ’em in the eye
Just pass them by, drive on by
Look away from the truth

You pass by children on your ride back home
Just pass them by, drive on by
Look away from the youth

Can’t be blind too long before you see
What it is you’re hiding from

You came from the dirt of these streets
Now you just pass by
In the safety of your suit and tie
Just keep going and don’t look back

You pass by the houses with the condemned signs
Just pass them by, drive on by
Look away from the truth

You pass by the places where you use to play
Just pass them by, drive on by
Look away from your youth

Can’t be blind too long before you see
What it is you’re hiding from

You came from the dirt of these streets
Now you just pass by
In the safety of your suit and tie
Just keep going and don’t look back
Just keep going and don’t look back
