I was caught between the years
Cost me nearly all my tears
With my back turned, looking down the path
Hit me like a ton of bricks
Had to get my outlook fixed
With my back turned, looking down the path

People always ask me why
What's the matter with me?
Nothing matters when I'm with my baby
With my back turned, looking down the path

We'll go walkin' hand in hand
Laughin' fit to beat the band
With our backs turned, looking down the path

People always ask me why
What's the matter with me?
Nothing matters when I'm with my baby
With my back turned, looking down the path

Some may have, and some may not
God, I'm thankful for what I got
With my back turned, looking down the path
With my back turned, looking down the path
With my back turned, looking down the path
