Boston - Don't Look Back (Official Music Live Video)



"Don't Look Back" is a song written by Tom Scholz that was first released by Boston in 1978 as the title track to their second album, Don't Look Back. It reached #4 on the Billboard Hot 100, making it one of the band's biggest hits.


Although the first song on the album, "Don't Look Back" was its final song to be written and recorded. According to Scholz "It was one of those things where everything clicked. I didn't even record a demo for that song. I came up with chord changes, melody, and the arrangement and put it right on the master tape." Brad Delp sang all the vocals, both lead and backing. Goudreau played the solo guitar parts in the intro and outro.


Scholz praised Goudreau's lead guitar playing at the end of the song. Scholz also stated that he made more than 60 edits to Sib Hashian's drum track in order to get the performance he wanted.





Lyrics


Don't look back

A new day is breakin'

It's been too long since I felt this way

I don't mind where I get taken

The road is callin'

Today is the day


I can see

It took so long just to realize

I'm much too strong

Not to compromise

Now I see what I am is holding me down

I'll turn it around (Oh, yes I will)


I finally see the dawn arrivin'

I see beyond the road I'm drivin'


It's a bright horizon and I'm awake now

Oh I see myself in a brand new way

The sun is shinin'

The clouds are breakin'

'Cause I can't lose now, there's no game to play


I can tell

There's no more time left to criticize

I've seen what I could not recognize

Everything in my life was leading me on

But I can be strong (Oh, yes I can)


I finally see the dawn arrivin'

I see beyond the road I'm drivin'

Far away and left behind (left behind)


Oh, the sun is shinin'

And I'm on that road


Don't look back

A new day is breakin'

It's been so long since I felt this way

I don't mind where I get taken

The road is callin'

Today is the day


I can see

It took so long just to realize

I'm much too strong

Not to compromise

Now I see what I am is holding me down

I'll turn it around (Oh, yes I will)


I finally see the dawn arrivin'

I see beyond the road I'm drivin'

Far away and left behind


Don't look back

Don't look back

Don't look back

Don't look back
