Don't Look Back
The Remains Lyrics


You both made your bed and now
You're gonna have to sleep there
Old Man Blues is goin' to try
Try to find you everywhere

[Don't look back] oh, you better not look now
[Don't look back] he's coming for you
[Don't look back] keep on running
Running till the end of time, oh yeah

If you both have faith you'll find
A sunny day
Don't be bothered by what
Smaller minds have got to say, just

[Don't look back] oh, you better not look now
[Don't look back] he's coming after you
[Don't look back] you gotta keep running, yeah
Running till the end of time, yeah

[One thing I wanna say]
[One thing I wanna say] wanna say now
[One thing I wanna say] oh yeah
[One thing I wanna say]
Talk, talk, talk, talking trash
Talk, talk, talking trash
Truth is the light [truth is the light]
The light is the way [light is the way]
The less folk know [the less they know]
The more they've got to say [yeah, yeah]
And if you want me to [uh-huh]
Here's what I'll do for you [all right]
I'll light a candle and I'll pray
The Lord will bless you
I hope that someday He will understand
But till they do

[Don't look back] oh, you better not look now
[Don't look back] he's coming after you
[Don't look back] you gotta keep running, yeah
Running till the end of time, oh yeah
[Don't look back] oh, you better not look now
[Don't look back] he's coming after you
[Don't look back] you'd better keep running, yeah
Running till the end of time, oh ye

WOW ! I remember seeing these guys when they were the local rage back in the mid 60's ! Like stepping into a time machine---Barry & Remains. Days of youth---good times, good times they were. One of the best Beantown groups of the times. Thanks for posting this obscure and rare piece!

bgepp

such a great tune - reminds me of the late 70s sound of Elvis Costello, Joe Jackson, The Knack etc

Mitch Gawlik

@Oppothumbs M I thought the same.

Oppothumbs M

Right, please not the Knack though.

This is great! Beat music forever! Beat lovers of the world unite and take over.

Not really beat music. This is more proto-punk.

Don't Look Back - Barry & The Remains [Boston, Massachusetts] - 1966 - "You'll always WONDER why it wasn't a Top Ten hit. With a Subliminal message." - The Remains-1991. NOTE: A highly regarded Massachusetts punk band, who were originally known as Barry and The Remains. They had quite a reputation in the Boston area in the late sixties, and opened for The Beatles last tour in the Summer of 1966.

Shawn Hardy

Came for my fix. Must hear this every so often. I love it so much!

Considered by some as the great lost group of the 60's.

Impala Man

So many garage bands are covering this song, but they all are missing that secret ingredient of that snappy electric piano that, for me, adds an extra layer of positive vibes to an already upbeat song---as appropriate for this song as it was for Queen on "You're My Best Friend".
