Lyrics - I Can't Go Back

I Can't Go Back
(from 1987's Bring Back the Night)

Three Oíclock in the morning
And I canít get a bit of sleep
My conscience warning
That I have promises to keep

You keep recalling
Just how good all this used to be
Still I keep stalling
Somethingís happening to me

It is so easy
For me to get myself sidetracked
And I canít go back
I canít go back
No I canít go back

Your invitation*
As you pull up so close to me
But my situation
Is nothing like it used to be

My visionís clearer
With each step that I move away
Youíre getting nearer
But getting close was not your way

Itís taking so long
For me to get on the right track
And I canít go back
I canít go back
No I canít go back

You are so sure
I canít resist
But thereís so much more
Iíve missed
I canít go back

You are so sure
I canít resist
Thereís so much more
Iíve missed
And I canít go back
I canít go back
I canít go back
No, I canít go back
I canít go back
I canít go back
Youíre not the same
I canít go back
My situationís changed
No, I canít go back
Iím not the same
I canít go back
You know Iíve changed
No, I canít go back
Youíre on your own
I canít go back
So go back home
No, I canít go back
You know Iíve changed
I canít go back
My situationís changed
No, I canít go back
You know Iíve changed
I canít go back
Iíve rearranged
No, I canít go back
