If you look back they'll eat you alive.

Walking through the woods

Listening to the wind

I'm alone with my thoughts

Deep within

"Suzonne, Baby, come back" 

I hear the first whisper

I can't look back

"Suzonne, please, come back to me"

"Shut up!!" 

I scream, hoping that he'll stop

"Hey, long time no see" 

The boy next to me says

I look straight ahead

Focusing on the path

"You don't control me"

I tell him wih such force

I walk and walk

I don't stop

I can't look back

"Do I control you?" 

The old lady sitting next to me asks

I feel the tears stream down my cheeks

"No, you don't"

I take one step

Two steps

I fall down to my knees 

I look straight ahead as they all come up next to me

My brother

My mother

My ex

They're all here with me

"Go away" 

I whisper to them, looking straight ahead

I can't look back

"Come back to me Baby girl, I need you"

I feel his hand in mine

"Sis, come play with me"

I feel him wrap me up in a hug

"Honey, how are you feeling?"

I feel her hands playing with my hair

I can't look back

I can't look back

I can't look

I can't



I looked back
