Standin' in the shadows
The man I used to be
Wanna go back
(Can't go back, can't go back)
Melodies awaken
Sorrows from their sleep
Wanna go back
(Can't go back, can't go back)

She was just a dream maker
Dreamer of sighs
Shadow on the one who used to cry
A face as soft as a tear in a clown's eye
Wanna go back
(Can't go back, can't go back)

She was just a dream maker
Dreamer of sighs
Shadow on the one who used to cry
A face as soft as a tear in a clown's eye
wanna go back
(Can't go back, can't go back)

    General CommentIs this about Lindsey working with Stevie again? Seems like it to me. Stevie used an early demo of this track to write some of her own lyrics - what eventually became "Wild Heart." Check it out on YouTube, it's awesome. Lindsey's gut reaction must have been "Hey, knock it off, we're not a songwriting duo anymore, these are MY songs now," and that's what Can't Go Back became about. Just the little soap opera in my head.
