Frightened Rabbit My Backwards Walk

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’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 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
