I’m working on my backwards walk
Walking with no shoes or socks
And the time rewinds to the end of May
I wish we’d never met, then met today
I’m working on my faults and cracks
Filling in the blanks and gaps
And when I write them out they don’t make sense
I need you to pencil in the rest
I’m working on drawing a straight line
And I’ll draw until I get one right
It’s bold and dark girl, can’t you see
I done drawn a line between you and me
I’m working on erasing you
Just don’t have the proper tools
I get hammered, forget that you exist
There’s no way I’m forgetting this
I’m working hard on walking out
Shoes keep sticking to the ground
My clothes won’t let me close the door
These trousers seem to love your floor
I been working on my backwards walk
There’s nowhere else for me to go
Except back to you just one last time
Say yes before I change my mind
Say yes before I…
You’re the shit and I’m knee-deep in it
You’re the shit and I’m knee-deep in it
You’re the shit and I’m knee-deep in it
You’re the shit and I’m knee-deep in it
You’re the shit and I’m knee-deep in it
You’re the shit and I’m knee-deep in it
You’re the shit and I’m knee-deep in it
You’re the shit and I’m knee-deep in it

Any other night I would want to be here
But the weather isn’t right
The air’s not clear
Would I be wrong to say a prayer
And watch my voice disappear into evening air?

I’m trying to catch a break and catch my breath behind the wheel
A moment of escape because the stress has gotten real
And now I’m thrown in gear
Headlights show the avenue
The path is clear and it’s quite a view

If there were wings where my shoulders are
I would close my eyes and fly so far
But right now I need to get away
I’ll get into my car
I’ll get into my car

Speed like jet planes hovering above the street
All my shit in a bag in the passenger seat
Move it to the back and leave it there
Here in this death cab, I’m screaming Death Cab
On Narrow Stairs

If there were wings where my shoulders are
I would close my eyes and fly so far
But right now I need to get away
I’ll get into my car
I’ll get into my car

If there were wings where my shoulders are
I would close my eyes and fly so far
But right now I need to get away
I’ll get into my car
