Look Away is sung in chapter 25, pg 176. Though not sung by Coker, it symbolizes how he looks forward to leaving South Carolina and making a new life in Alabama. Sung by Ryan Stock.

My fathers before me worked this land.
By sweat and toil, they made this place grand.
But alas, I know I've a roving heart,
It's time for me and my homeland to part.

Look away, look away to a life that is new,
My season has come, to mine own heart be true.
Look away, look away, I fly like the dove
Leaving my home and the people I love.

Verse two:
The grass is greener o'er yon hill.
Beyond the horizon, my dreams to fulfill.
I will leave my doubts and fears behind.
A bright land of promise I know I'll find.

Repeat chorus

Bridges of the Heart: Bridges of the Heart
College student, Rachel Lisenby finds life hard to cope with after her mother passes away. To add to Rachel’s confusion, her boyfriend Maxson proposes marriage on the evening of the funeral. She escapes to Utah to think and take time off from the relationship. Over the phone, she tells Maxson she is not ready for marriage, and suggests he starts dating other girls.

After returning to Arizona, Rachel finds Maxson in a relationship with Paige—her rival throughout high school. With time, Rachel convinces herself she is over him, but a strange Southern visitor named Jonathan tells her that she is meant to marry Maxson. Jonathan insists it is her responsibility to apologize to Maxson and set things straight, since she broke up with him. But Rachel refuses. Because of her stubbornness, she is whirled back in time to 1820 to learn that family ties reach into the past, as well as the future.

With a heart-warming, unique perspective of the early-nineteenth-century American South, Bridges of the Heart is a story about the power of love and forgiveness.
