'We Cannot Go Back' 
© Written & Sung by Works of HeART Project Founder - Micki Findlay feat TerraZetto (Lyrics below) Instrumentals, backup vocals & recording by ‘Terrazetto’


1. We cannot go back to the way things were 
A world filled with bigotry, judgment and fear
So many suffered for what we hold dear. We cannot go back.

2.  Our world can be harsh; void of mercy and grace 
Towards those who differ in religion or race
But we’re all connected in various ways. We cannot go back.
--------------------------------------------------------------
Refrain:  We cannot go backwards, we cannot go back… (rpt 3x)
--------------------------------------------------------------
3.  Black, brown, yellow; we’re all just the same
The same coloured blood flows through all of our veins
So how can this all be happ'ning again?  We cannot go back.

4.  We cannot go back to a time we thought lost; 
Legalized slavery and the holocaust
All of our freedoms; they came at a cost. We cannot go back.
----------------------------------------------------------------
Refrain:  We cannot go backwards, we cannot go back… (rpt 3x)
----------------------------------------------------------------
Bridge:  Be kind to one another as we are all sisters and brothers.
We hurt when we hurt one another.  It’s time to make a change (Rpt)
----------------------------------------------------------------
5.  Judging those who are different is our tendency
But often we are our own worst enemy
More threat lies within us than externally.  We cannot go back.

6.  M.L. King was a hero; a human so rare.
Who said, “Hate is too great a burden to bear.”
Instead of revenge, he forgave and chose pray’r. We cannot go back.
--------------------------------------------------------------
Chorus:  What gives you the right to decide who is ‘in’? 
Who told you to judge by the colour of skin?
Who taught you that not being white is a sin?  We cannot go back.

“Do unto others”, yes, no matter who
As you would have them do unto you.”
Wise words to live up to. We cannot go back.
------------------------------------------------------------------
Bridge:  Be kind to one another as we are all sisters and brothers
We hurt when we hurt one another,
It’s time to make a change. (Rpt)
------------------------------------------------------------------
Instrumental Interlude
------------------------------------------------------------------
7.  Please tell your children there’s a better way
Teach them acceptance and kind words to say
Show by example what you need to convey. We cannot go back.
------------------------------------------------------------------
Refrain:  We cannot go backwards, we cannot go back… (Rpt 15x) 
On 8x - add Bridge.
