Etta James – Looking Back lyrics
Looking back over my life
I can see where I have caused you strife
But I know, oh yes, I know
I'd never make that same mistake again

Looking back over my deeds
I can see signs a wise man heeds
And if I just had the chance
I'd never make that same mistake again

Once my cup was overflowing
But I gave nothing in return
Now I can't begin to tell you
What a lesson I have learned

Looking back over the slate
I can see love turn to hate
But I know, oh yes, I know
I'd never make that same mistake again

Once my cup was overflowing
But I gave nothing in return
Now I can't begin to tell you
Oh, what a lesson I have learned

Looking back over the slate
I can see love turn to hate
But I know, oh yes, I know
I'd never make that same mistake again
