I woke up from dreaming
I dreamt I got a call from a friend of mine
She sounded really lonely, but I had somewhere to be
I said I'll call you later cause I really have to go
I can't be late, she'll be okay, this is important
Then I forget completely

You can be who you chose to be
But whether you do, whether you don't
It depends on your priority
And I know that it's not easy

I'm looking for the Peace to find some sleep tonight
Because I'm not very proud of the way I have lived today
But if I chose to, follow Him along the way
Then Maybe I won't look back
Felt like time was gonna pass me by
Maybe I Won't Look Back
On those days I could have said something
And those times when I was needed I was busy
I wasn't within the warning so now I see the moment is good
Maybe I Won't Look Back
In some way I could have done something
A thoughtful word a simple smile I was selfish
But if I change my heart today tomorrow it might be okay
And maybe I won't look back...

I woke up from a nightmare
Where I was walking down the street
Invisible and no one else could see me
All my chances were gone
I can't get your attention
I've had so many things to say but never tried
Afraid you wouldn't listen
I should have done it all differently


You can be who you chose to be
But whether you do, whether you don't
It depends on your priorities
Lord, help me chose the wise way


I'm looking for the Peace to find some sleep tonight
Because I'm not very proud of the way that I live today
But if I chose to, follow Him along the way
Then Maybe I won't look back
Felt like time was gonna pass me by
Maybe I Won't Look Back
On those days I should have said something
And those times when I was needed I was busy
I wasn't within the warning so now I see the moment is gone
Maybe I Won't Look Back
In some way I could have done something
A thoughtful word a simple smile but I was selfish
But if I change my heart today tomorrow it might be okay
And maybe I won't look back...

RAP
I can't hold on back
I can't be shy
This is my big chance to be livin' the life
I gotta stand up strong and take the ride
Throw all those useless excuses aside
There's so much to do , I gotta alot to say
I don't always understand but I follow anyway
Cause there is a bigger plan and destiny
I can't waste this precious time

I'm looking for the Peace to find some sleep tonight
Because I'm not very proud of the way I live today
But if I chose to, follow Him along the way
Then Maybe I won't look back
Felt like time was gonna pass me by
Maybe I Won't Look Back
On those days I could have said something
And those times when I was needed I was busy
I wasn't within the warning so now I see the moment is gone
Maybe I Won't Look Back
In some way I could have done something
A thoughtful word a simple smile I was selfish
But if I change my heart today tomorrow it might be okay
And maybe I won't look back...
Then maybe I won't look back
Then maybe I won't look back

    General CommentYes, some of the lyrics are incorrect. If you give this song a listen, it's pretty obvious what this song is about -- "not very proud of the way I live today", "if I change my heart today, tomorrow it might be okay, and maybe I won't look back"... you know you've got parts of your life that are bad, and you realize the solution, and you're asking for help. Stacie Orrico is a Christian singer, so presumably, the help is from God. Easy to understand, yes, and I freakin' love this song. She shows off her R&B side very well in this, without going over the top or sounding "rap-ish".

    General CommentI love this song. I think it's about not living in the past. Yes, i made some mistakes and acted in ways I shouldn've and done some things I shouldn't have, but it's time to look ahead into the future. I can really relate to this song.
