No More Looking over My Shoulder - Travis Tritt

As a child I was told that I was destined to be nothing
Growing wild as I got older I fulfilled what had been said
Hiding ignorance and fear I prayed nobody saw me bluffing
But I was laying the foundation for a future I would dread.
Yeah.

Seems like every choice I made
Would somehow leave me second-guessing
'Bout the green grass I was passing
Racing toward the other side
I thank God for the blessing
That I finally learned this lesson..
One Step in the right direction's
Worth a wasted mile behind

[Chorus:]
Singin'
No more, lookin' over my shoulder
No more, hangin' on to the past
No more, filling up my tomorrows
With yesterday's sorrows
No more, lookin' over my shoulder.

I could chill a room with reasons
Why I would not give forgiveness
To the people who had selfishly
L..eft me a wounded soul
I kept dragging 'round those memories
Like a ball and chain behind me
Wonderin' why my troubles followed me
Wherever I would go
Oh, but one night, sick and tired of being sick and tired
I realized forgiveness was the only open road
I swear I heard those shackles snap
The moment that I took that path
I never have one time looked back
Since the morning I arose.

[Chorus:]
Singin'
No more, lookin' over my shoulder
No more, hangin' on to the past
No more, filling up my tomorrows
With yesterday's sorrows
No more, lookin' over my shoulder.

[Instrumental]

I'm singin'
No more, lookin' over my shoulder
No more, hangin' on to the past
No more, filling up my tomorrows
With yesterday's sorrows
No more, no more, no..no. no.

No more, lookin' over my shoulder
No more, hangin' on to the past
No more, filling up my tomorrows
With yesterday's sorrows
No more, lookin' over my shoulder...
