Whoa Back

 c 2003 Rachel Nelson

Evolution is a crazy thing

You’ve got to keep doing what makes your heart sing.

If you take a step, and you don’t feel right

Just stop—listen—turn on a dime, and

CHORUS:       Whoa back (Whoa back)

            Whoa back (Whoa back)

            We’ve got to keep listening to stay on track.

            Whoa back (Whoa back)

            Whoa back (Whoa back)

            We’ve got to keep listening to stay on track.

 

Working together, step by step

We listen to each other to find what’s next

Whenever we come to a fork in the road

We just stop . . . before we shoulder that load, and

            CHORUS

 

When I have a question, I'll ask the youth

‘Cause they’re the ones who gonna tell me the truth

Shall we have peace or war?  I look in their eyes--

See all that love, you know I turn on a dime, and

            CHORUS

 

Humans been around for a long, long time

Thinkin' their existence might turn on a dime

But Nature can teach us how to adapt

If we stop—and listen—before we act.

            CHORUS
