You're living in a place you left behind
Going round in circles all the time
Can see the way your head it's like you're blind
So open your eyes and
Time realign just what you got
With what you nearly had and what you want
You fall asleep and then the moment's gone
So open your eyes and

Yeah, its hard to undo time
Hard to separate my past from my rhyme
Cause how could you separate milk from lime
Waste my time

Looking back
You always seem to be looking back (looking back)
Feels like your mind's always somewhere else
You're always looking over your shoulder

Think about the places you could never be
Beauty in the faces that you never see
As you lie this sleepy
How the moment flies
So open your eyes and:

Yeah, they say life makes sense backwards
But you've got to live it forward

Don't waste your time, no
Don't waste your time just looking back
You always seem to be looking back
Feels like your mind's always somewhere else
You're always looking over your shoulder (over your shoulder)
Looking back
You always seem to be looking back (looking back)
Feels like your mind's always somewhere else (somewhere else)
You're always looking over your shoulder

Am I the only one trying to fight off an army
Of memories dressed up all trying to harm me
I feel cocky, running up the steps like Rocky
Until the past comes flashing like paparazzi
Nothing's new so why open my folder
My favorite view is over my shoulder
Everything backwards, is my plight
Its landing first when in my flight
Even my tears run up my cheeks
Back in my eye
Link I die

Don't waste your time just looking back
You always seem to be looking back (looking back)
Feels like your mind's always somewhere else (somewhere else)
You're always looking over your shoulder (over your shoulder)
You always seem to be looking back (looking back)
Feels like your mind's always somewhere else (somewhere else)
You're always looking over your shoulder (over your shoulder)

You're always looking back
Over, and over, and over
You're always looking back
