(Can't turn back) {"Can't" repeats through in BG} 
I got my mind made up 
I... I... I got my mind made up 
(Can't turn back) 

Every time you turn around 
You're givin' me hope, then you bring me down 
Rub my face in the mud and then you lie behind my back 
It could be a possibility, baby it just weren't meant to be 
Maybe it's time 4 us to go on separately 

You never understood my problems 
You never asked me what I need 

[Chorus] 
It's my time to let you see 
Just how bad you treated me 
Maybe the love we had, it just weren't meant to be 
I got my mind made up, now I know that I Can't turn back, no 
It's goin' be hard for me to let go, but I Can't turn back 

Well, hey! 
Oh Lord 

Haven't I tried to treat you right? 
So why do you go out every night 
Chasin' the same old thing when I got just what you need? 
Then you expect my loyalty, love and trust and honesty 
Baby, it's time to check on your priorities 

We never talked about solutions (No, no, no, no) 
All we did was fuss and fight 

[Chorus] 

(Can't turn back) 
Play on it, play on it 
Well, give me that blues y'all, come on 
(Can't turn back) 
(You got to try anyway)
I need you to tell me 

I got my mind made up, now I know I Can't turn back, no 
(That I Can't turn back) 
It's gonna be hard, gonna be hard 4 me to let go 
But I, but I Can't, I... no, no no 
(It's gonna be hard 4 me to let go, but I Can't turn back) 

(No, I Can't turn back) 
I Can't, I Can't, just Can't, no I Can't turn back 

(Everybody Can't do that, yeah) {fade out} 
you see I, I love you, but I Can't do it 
I Can't turn back (I Can't turn back) 
I've come to far (Come to far) 
Come to far to turn back
