DON'T LOOK BACK

Outtake version


Cold rain runnin' down the front of my shirt
I'm flat on my back, wheels in the dirt
Angel makes her face up out on Baker Street
Yeah she's straddling the shifter in my front seat
There's nothing to lose, it's a setup, the deck's stacked
Put your foot to the floor and darlin' don't look back

Makin' night tracks through the blazin' rain
Blow them pistons workin' the fast lane
Red line burnin', pocket's full of cash
Angel writes her name in lipstick on my dash
There's nothing to lose, it's a setup, baby you're backed
Put your foot to the floor and darlin' don't look back
Hey!

We held it in our hearts in the pourin' rain
We took it all apart in a hurricane
We tore it apart and put it together again

Hey!

Angel, won't you believe in love for me
We're gonna take ourselves darling in the sea
We'll move with the city in the dark
You gotta walk it, talk it in your heart
There's nothing to lose, it's a setup, the deck's stacked
Put your foot to the floor now darlin'
We're gonna blow out the doors now darlin'
Tonight we'll even the score and baby we won't look back

Whoa whoa whoa
Don't look back, hey!
Whoa whoa whoa
Don't look back
Whoa whoa whoa
Don't look back
No no no no no
Well don't look back
Whoa whoa whoa
Oh yeah!
