"We don't have to look back now" as written by Max Collins and Tony Fagenson....
I'm so much like you
Restless and wreckless
I need a clue
So show me a sign
I feel like making a move
Real geographic, a change in mood
We'll let go of everything we know

[Chorus]
You and I will ride tonight
Till the past is out of sight
We don't have to look back now
From the dark into the light
We can leave it all behind
We can stand together, we don't have to look back now

I'm so much like you
Caught in a moment, coming unglued
In a world so big, it's not easy to choose
Which path to take, which pawn to move
So we'll let go of everything we've ever known

[Chorus]

No one can stop us now
The world is rushing by
The wind is at our back
Everything's new tonight,

We're going our own way
No matter what they say
The bridge is on fire,
We're flying higher now

You and I will ride tonight
'Till the past is out of sight
We don't have to look back now
We are knocking down the wall, all for one and one for all
We can stand together
Never gonna look back now

Oh no, Oh no
We don't have to look back now
(Oh no, Oh no)
We don't have to look back now

    General CommentI don't think this song is about a past love.
    I think it's about two people who have had difficult relationships in the past. And now found someone who actually gets them or understands them. He's telling her they don't have to "look back now". Also I think it's someone telling their new girlfriend, that this time things will be better, and not to let past relationships come between them.

    Like being afraid to fall in love with him. Ect.

    General CommentAhh I love this song. This song to me is about starting over with a past love. Forgetting the past, not looking back, just starting over and hoping you'll make it.

    General Commenti totally agree with uhhh1...i don't think its about starting over with a past love, but maybe something more like two friends that knew each other when they were going out with other people, but both of their relationships ended badly, and the guy is singing to the girl saying like he knows it was hard but they can just forget about the past...they are together now and thats all that matters.....this song totally makes sense...i mean when you've fallen in love once you are so afraid to fall in love again, to get hurt.....but when you find that one person who just gets, you, then, you just have to trust yourself, and the other person......love is giving the other person the ability to break your heart but trusting them not to.....its hard to let yourself fall in love again.....but i think thats what this song is about

    General CommentI agree with uhhh1 and punkfairyinlove on this one. I think it's about two friends that have known each other for quite some time and have both been in harmful and/or destructive relationships. They consoled and helped each other during those times, but because they were hurt, it was hard to believe in love.

    But, being friends and having that "special connection", they knew they could just let go of their collective pasts and be with each other like they always had been and what was meant to be. Helping from the sidelines was not good enough. Nobody could ever prevent them from becoming one, and no matter what people say, they won't look back on their pasts or fall on the words of others. Simply to be with each other is good enough.

    On a sidenote: I LOVE YOU MAGGIE! You've been my best friend for 11 years and you know I'd never hurt you. Thanks for giving me this chance to be with you!

    General CommentI absolutely love this song! It's about two people who have been in love with each other before but it ended badly. He just wants to start over and forget about the past. Very cute song.

    no matter what they say
    the bridge is on fire, we're flying higher now"
