“My Backwards Walk” by Frightened Rabbit

“You’re the shit and I’m knee-deep in it.”

I’m working on my backwards
Walking with no shoes or socks
And the time rewinds to the end of May
I wish we’d never met, then met today

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

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’ll 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
‘Cause the trousers seem to your floor

I been working on my backwards
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…


I'm routinely overestimated.
