(Words and music by Stephen Stills, Graham Nash & Michael Stergis)


Is this a prison
Or do you call it love?
You will know for certain some day
It'll never be tough enough

When love is hidden
It is below/above
And you know when you run away
You turn your back on love

Chorus
Lonely days and lonely nights
Will we ever get it right
Don't be blinded by the light

Turn your back on love
No, no

You're dying to prove
That you are never wrong
You're so right, you'd rather be sad
But you won't go along

You built a wall didn't ya
'Round what you're thinking of
Never mind what anyone says
You're turning your back on love

Chorus
Lonely days and lonely nights
Will we ever get it right
Don't be blinded by the light

Turn turn turn
Would you turn your back on love

Isn't it my life
Tell me what else it is

You can do whatever you want
If you will take a risk

When is it my love
How will you handle it
To wit:
There are two whenever we are
If you can hear the kiss

If you believe it
Love is quite strong enough
Be together, honest and free
No turning back on love

Chorus
Lonely days and lonely nights
Will we ever get it right
Don't be blinded by the light

Turn your back on love

Turn your back
Turn your back on love
(Don't turn your back)...
