Come Too Far To Turn Back Now

by Carla Marie

Iím on my way... to my own personal... on the inside...
celebration... ya know?
cuz I realized... 
I already did the tuffest jobs Iíll ever do... 
I done raised my kids... 
loved my loves... 
bumped my head... 
learned my lessons... 
fought my fights... 
forgiven my foes... 
and finally...finally... 
forgiven... 
my... self.. 

And Iíve come far... 
a long loooong way...
but I know I still got a long way to go...
so 
I just might get me a push-up bra... 
and a low-cut blouse...
and maybe a weave... and some New Journey shoes... 
for my new journey.. some new high heels will 
certainly do...
heels high enuf to make my
thighs stand out... and
my ankle turn just so... and
my hips sway when I step... and 
my skirt tail snap when I pass... and
when I pass...
Iíma give a little look over my shoulder... like this...

so you can see... 
that I saw you see me...

But Iím just gon give a LITTLE look
cuz I canít look BACK 
for TOO long!
see, I might be tempted to TURN back... 
an try to 
re-do somethiní... or
explain somethiní... or
fix somethiní... or
cry over somethiní... 

And Iíve just plain come too far!!!
Baby... Iíve
Come too far to turn back now...
and still got a long long way to go...
