feels like we only go backwards lyrics – tame impala

it feels like i only go backwards baby,
every part of me says “go ahead”.
but i got my hopes up again, oh no, not again.
feels like we only go backwards darling.

i know that you think you sound
silly when you call my name
but i hear it inside my head all day.
when i realise i’m just holding onto
the hope that maybe
your feelings don’t show…

it feels like i only go backwards baby,
every part of me says go ahead.
then i got my hopes up again, oh no, not again.
feels like we only go backwards darling.

the seed of all this indecision isn’t me, oh no,
’cause i decided long ago.
but that’s the way it seems to go when trying
so hard to get to something real,
it feels…

it feels like i only go backwards baby,
every part of me says “go ahead”.
but i got my hopes up again, oh no, not again.
feels like we only go backwards darling.
