Lyrics

He went walkin’ on a mid-west mornin’ said if I don’t go now I may never leave

Said some words to his father who passed on when he was just 17

She was sittin’ on a hillside countin’ the clouds climbin’ up above the bay

Pulled her shoes from her purse and headed for work at the corner café

                  There’s no lookin’ back now

                  Let the bridges burn to the ground

                  There’s no lookin’ back now

                  Feel the walls fallin’ down

When he arrived the ocean rain was fallin’ on the streets littered with broken dreams

He called home and let his family know the city was something to see

She was workin’ when he came in from the rain

She poured him coffee and they sat and talked a while

She showed him poems on the wall he saw a flower child

                  There’s no lookin’ back now

                  Let the bridges burn to the ground

                  There’s no lookin’ back now

                  Feel the walls fallin’ down

       They talk a lot about all they’ve got and not a word about what was lost

       They know it’s up to them and really no one else to make this life worth livin’ or living hell

They spend the summer makin’ plans and losin’ doubt

He fills his pick up with the things they can’t live without

She said let’s head for some sun and some fun that’s what life’s about
