SONG OF THE DAY: THE WEEPIES “CAN’T GO BACK NOW”

The Weepies are an indie pop-folk duo of married singer-songwriters Deb Talan and Steve Tannen. According to Talan, the band’s name came from old movies called weepies, where you could basically be guaranteed that if you needed a good cry. And we want to be able to provide that for people. We want to make music that touches them and moves them in that way, the place where tears come from, for joy and for sorrow.

In 2007, the band collaborated with Mandy Moore, playing and writing on her new album, Wild Hope. On December 16, 2013, it was announced on the band’s Facebook page that Deb Talan had been diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer. After Talan underwent both chemotherapy and surgery, the band’s Facebook page announced on June 10 that she was in remission.

“Can’t Go Back Now”

Yesterday when you were young
Everything you needed done was done for you
Now you do it on your own
But you find you’re all alone, what can you do?

You and me walk on, walk on, walk on
‘Cause you can’t go back now

You know there will be days
When you’re so tired
That you can’t take another step
The night will have no stars
And you’ll think you’ve gone as far
As you will ever get

You and me walk on, walk on, walk on
‘Cause you can’t go back now

And yeah, yeah, you go where you want to go
Yeah, yeah, be what you want to be
If you ever turn around, you’ll see me

I can’t really say
Why everybody wishes they were somewhere else
But in the end, the only steps that matter
Are the ones you take all by yourself

You and me walk on, walk on, walk on
Yeah, you and me walk on, walk on, walk on
‘Cause you can’t go back now
Walk on, walk on, walk on
You can’t go back now
