No Going Back


                         No Going Back
                         Back To The Old Days
                    The Old Days I Had My Family
                          A Place To Call Home
                             I Have Nothing
                      Do You Know How It Feels
                    To Not Ever See Your Family
                               Well I Do
                                 It Hurts..
