Boston - Don't Look Back
(Longer version with higher quality audio below)

Don't look back
A new day is breaking
It's been too long since I felt this way
I don't mind where I get taken
The road is calling
Today is the day

I can see
It took so long just to realize
I'm much too strong
Not to compromise
Now I see what I am is holding me down
I'll turn it around
Oh yes I will

I finally see the dawn arriving
I see beyond the road I'm driving

It's a bright horizon and I'm awaking
Oh I see myself in a brand new way
The sun is shining
The clouds are breaking
Cause I can't lose now.
There's no game to play

I can tell
There's no more time left to criticize
I've seen what I could not recognize
Everything in my life was leading me on
But I can be strong

I finally see the dawn arriving
I see beyond the road I'm driving
Far away and left behind

All of this reminds me of Aida's blog, Forgetting the Former Things.

"Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland." (Isaiah 43:18-19)


  1. That gave me a bit of a jaw drop moment! Just got Boston's greatest hits. Good song. 'A man I'll never be' would be the law song, methinks.

  2. Yep, there are lots of great Boston songs! I remember this one was often played Friday's at 5pm on the radio, as I headed home for the weekend from college. Truly lifted my spirits!
