Don't Look Back

If it's love that you're running from
There is no hiding place
Love has problems but they're problems we'll just have to face
If you just put your hand in mine
We're gonna leave all our troubles behind
We're gonna walk and don't look back
We're gonna walk and don't look back

If your first lover let you down
There's something that can be done
Don't lose your faith in love because of what he's done
If you just put your hand in mine
We're gonna leave all our troubles behind
We're gonna walk and don't look back
We're gonna walk and don't look back

Places behind you there to remind you

Love can be a beautiful thing
Though your first love let you down
Though I know love can mend
The second time around
But if you just put your hand in mine
We're gonna leave all our troubles behind
We're gonna walk and don't look back
We're gonna walk and don't look back

Places behind you there to remind you

We're gonna walk and don't look back
We're gonna walk and don't look back
We're gonna push and don't look back
We're gonna walk and don't look back
