Trish Lester: Music & Radio

Don't Look Back

(Trish Lester)
March 1, 2010
Original music and lyrics by Trish Lester

Trish wrote this song as a special message for her friend, Eileen, but it applies to many other people she knows -- and folks YOU know, too, who want to overcome traumatizing events in their past and keep looking ahead to brighter days!

Singing background vocals are Joan Enguita and Linda Geleris. Together they sing with Trish in an acoustic trio, "Women on the Move" (

           “Three distinct voices merged into one angelic blend. Great entertainment.”

                                       -- Acoustic L.A.-LIVE!

Don’t look back

Gotta keep lookin’ forward

Don’t look back

Gotta keep movin’ on

Time to give up the past, ‘cause it don’t last

Does me no good to keep holding fast

No more alas and alack

Don’t look back


Don’t look back

Leavin’ troubles behind me

Don’t look back

I made up my mind

No more grief, no gloom, no dread

No more power in the words you said

I’m ignorin’ that ol’ yakity yak 

Don’t look back


I know I can’t change

What I’ been through

But I’m in control

Of my attitude


Don’t look back

I have faith in tomorrow

Don’t look back

I’m waitin’ up for the sun

I see in that light a future so bright

Every day is like love at first sight

I’m on a whole new track

Don’t look back


It’s a brand new day, gonna find my way

Start over again, hear me when I say

I’m on a whole new track

Don’t look back
