Music/instrumentation/production: Billy Playle
Vocals: Monique French & Billy Playle
Lyric & narration: Donna Devine

Don't Look Back

Narration
Life on earth is no longer sustainable.
?It is forbidden to bear children beyond the year 2080.?
If a woman falls pregnant, she has two choices:
abort the child, or have it taken from her at the age of three,? and sent to a colony in deep space.?
There the child will be taught to survive in an alien environment.?
The child will never see earth or its birth mother again,? but will become a citizen, a pioneer, perhaps a leader? in a New Off-World Order.
Whatever memories the child takes with him - or her - will determine the kind of person the child becomes.

V1
The big ship is humming
Its doors will soon close
Come here, wipe your tears
Oh you're breaking my heart
Straight ahead, little one
Make those little feet run
While I stay here to grieve
Soon homeworld will vanish
With the lies we believed

Pre-chorus
Don't look back
Don't look back
Don't look back

Chorus 1
But I hope you'll remember
The delicate sheen
Of a butterfly's wing
The purr of a kitten
Fragrant roses in spring
A fierce foaming sea
Running barefoot in rain
The sweet taste of berries
A soft kiss good-night
And a memory of me

Solo/space noises

V2
I arrived in a spacecraft
When I was just three
And I grew and I learned
And somehow became wise
First I taught, then commanded
The New World expanded
As the years peeled away
And now I've grown old
Under alien skies

Bridge
And although I've forgotten
Oh, so many things
At times in a dream
A woman's voice sings

Pre-chorus
Don't look back
Don't look back
Don't look back

Chorus 2
But I hope you'll remember
The delicate sheen
Of a butterfly's wing
The purr of a kitten
Fragrant roses in spring
A fierce foaming sea
Running barefoot in rain
The sweet taste of berries
A soft kiss good-night
And a memory of me

Tag
Don't look back
(And a memory...)
Don't look back

Intriguing, Interesting and a chest full of symphonic glorious sounds and the vocals are angelic. This caught my attention, but admit I almost left it homeless but held on through the narration and storyline. Donna paints and lays out a beautiful presentation and then the layers of music on the sound canvas begins. Swirling Spacey orchestral magical sounds envelope you as you go on a journey to that special place in the heavens
