Mavis Staples – Kain't Turn Back lyrics
(Can't turn back) {"Can't" repeats through in BG}
I got my mind made up
I... I... I got my mind made up
(Can't turn back)

Every time you turn around
You're givin' me hope, then you bring me down
Rub my face in the mud and then you lie behind my back
It could be a possibility, baby it just weren't meant to be
Maybe it's time 4 us to go on separately

You never understood my problems
You never asked me what I need

[Chorus]
It's my time to let you see
Just how bad you treated me
Maybe the love we had, it just weren't meant to be
I got my mind made up, now I know that I Can't turn back, no
It's goin' be hard for me to let go, but I Can't turn back

Well, hey!
Oh Lord

Haven't I tried to treat you right?
So why do you go out every night
Chasin' the same old thing when I got just what you need?
Then you expect my loyalty, love and trust and honesty
Baby, it's time to check on your priorities

We never talked about solutions (No, no, no, no)
All we did was fuss and fight

[Chorus]

(Can't turn back)
Play on it, play on it
Well, give me that blues y'all, come on
(Can't turn back)
(You got to try anyway)
I need you to tell me

I got my mind made up, now I know I Can't turn back, no
(That I Can't turn back)
It's gonna be hard, gonna be hard 4 me to let go
But I, but I Can't, I... no, no no
(It's gonna be hard 4 me to let go, but I Can't turn back)

(No, I Can't turn back)
I Can't, I Can't, just Can't, no I Can't turn back

(Everybody Can't do that, yeah) {fade out}
you see I, I love you, but I Can't do it
I Can't turn back (I Can't turn back)
I've come to far (Come to far)
Come to far to turn back
