Turn Around Once

(unreleased)
 
Turn Around Once
words and music by Mark Herring
 
Familiar faces, familiar smile 
And I watched you move across the room                                        
Last time I saw you                                                                           
Well it’d been a while                                                          
But you left way too soon                                                                 
As time goes by we seem, to mellow out the past                                         
And drift on back to familiar ground                                                
And I can’t say just why I’m thinking like I am                                            
Cause all you did back then                                                   
Was bring me down                                                                           
                                  
Well you turn around once and you’ve seen it again             
Why waste time where you’ve already been 
Cause sooner or later, it’ll come right back to you, yea                                 
If I could stop now I could turn it around                            
Head it on back to familiar ground                            
But as time goes by I see there’s nothing that I can do                        
So I’ll leave it up to you                        
I’ll leave it up to you                          
 
It can’t be easy when you’re looking through the glass                                 
To close your eyes and pretend it’s gone                               
When something follows you, it can seem to last                              
Though it was years ago, it’s not that long                            
And something pulls even though, I hate to say it’s true                              
But confusion lies, even though it’s wrong                            
And I can’t say just why I’m feeling like I do
I’ve leaned to live this way, just to get along
 
Yea you turn around once and you’ve seen it again             
Why waste time where you’ve already been 
Cause sooner or later, it’ll come right back to you, yea                                 
If I could stop now I could turn it around                            
Head it on back to familiar ground                            
But as time goes by I see there’s nothing that I can do          
              
So I’ll leave it up to you… I know                       
I’ll leave it up to you, yea… I know
I leave it up to you
