back & forth lyrics – foo fighters

“back & forth”

once upon a time i was somebody else
in another life, i saw myself
way back then, back when i was you

somewhere down the line i started to slip
years gone by, biting my lip
all the while, all this time i knew

now your on your own, one for the pages
over the hill and through the ages
does my heaven burn like h*ll on you?

out beneath the cracks and coming in waves
rolling like an earthquake under the pavement
heavy now, tell me mr.truth

you got a lot of nerve
now show a little backbone why don’t you

[chorus]

i’m lookin’ for some back and forth with you
are you feeling the same as i do now and now and then?
i’m lookin’ for some back and forth with you
are you feeling the same as i do?
down and out

holding my breath i waited and waited
how’d the simple life get so complicated?
shoes to fill, secrets to spill down you

deer in the headlights, spoke in the wheel
you want pretend i need for real
i’m taking it back, all my iou’s

you got a lot of nerve
now show a little backbone why don’t you

[chorus]

[solo]

you got a lot of nerve
now show a little backbone why don’t you

[chorus x3]
