Christina Perri – Backwards lyrics

Take me backwards
Turn me around
Cannot find my balance on the ground
This world is too heavy
For a feather falling quickly

And I wrote you a story
But I'm afraid of how it ends
And all my friends are doing well
And I'm still on the mend!

I'm going to lay back down
Hope the wind takes me around
I gotta find some courage in this town

'Cause nobody's going to save
Somebody who won't change
I'll try to be brave

Nothing's coming easy
And all at once I feel a little queasy
Oh but if you lost my remedy
Won't you please come and be with me

It's not like thier's much better
Nobody's grass is as green as mine
I can't say that I'm satisfied
Three thousand miles from your kiss goodbye

I'm going to lay back down
Hope the wind takes me around
I gotta find some courage in this town

And everybody's afraid
'Cause chances come from change
And everybody's afraid
'Cause chances come from breaking
And chances are your breaking open

I'm going to lay back down
Hope the wind take me around
I gotta find some courage in this town
'Cause nobody's going to save
Somebody who won't change
It's time to be brave

    Eventhough I said. Now, I don't really know the meaning. Maybe it means when you get really close to finding all your answers your fear of knowing kills reality and causes confusion. Maybe confusion appears more simple than reality. That's kinda backwards. I've had a few gutshots, but I'm not scared of another. They build character. Who knows, backwards and upside down could make a pair. Honestly, I am still a little hazey, but I know I love upside down. That might sound crazy :)
    P. S. "spining" has 2 n's, but "shirley" that was on purpose.

    It fits me well. :) for me, 'twas like having that courage to face changes caused by distance. I'm 3 thousand miles apart from my love, and it's true that I was never satisfied by his goodbye kiss that time, I want more of him, everyday. I want to see him, be with him, take good care of him. But it's not gonna happen for a long time and I've gotta deal with it. Tryna get a life, find some courage in this town. But I'm not giving up, I'm still hoping, and praying that he will come and be with me. I miss my babee.
