about

Memories...no matter how much you want to move on there are certain things that will always drag you back.

A live favourite at Derek's gigs.

"Funny how some songs can make you feel sad and actually enjoy that feeling of sadness. I think it's all about how we feel we can relate to the song and how it seems to reflect our own experiences of life. That's what makes it a great song and an inspired piece of songwriting." Jan Garrick

"I gotta say I reckon this is my favorite song. Some songs speak to the mind, some to the heart and soul...this one here speaks to all three of mine. This song is beyond golden." Steve Tolbert

lyrics

Drag You Back

You can float along the river you can walk along the railroad track
Leave it all behind and swear you’re never going back
But you leave footprints in the dirt and tear-stains on the pillow where you lay your hat
It’s gonna drag you back

You can dream all you want but a dream is what it says it is
Wishing on a star ain’t nothing but a far off wish
Remember a time when the world turned on a teenage kiss?
It’s gonna drag you back

Drag you back to a world you thought you’d left behind
Drag you back to a long forgotten state of mind
Drag you back to another place and time

It’s not difficult to say adieu
The difficult part is to see it through
Like beautiful women, memories have a hold on you
It’s gonna drag you back

Drag you back to a world you thought you’d left behind
Drag you back to a long forgotten state of mind
Drag you back to another place and time

A summer love song you once slow-danced to
A woman’s perfume when she stands next to you
Watching the way a young guitar-player moves
It’s gonna drag you back
