Foo Fighters – Back & Forth lyrics

Once upon a time I was somebody else.
In another life I saw myself.
Way back then, back when I was new.

Somehere down the line I started to slip.
Years gone by, biting my lip.
All the while, all this time I knew.

Now you're on your own, one for the pages.
Over the hill and through the ages.
Does my heaven burn like hell on you?

Out beneath the cracks they're coming in waves.
Rolling like an earthquake under the pavement.
There, there, now, tell me Mr. True.

You got a lot of nerve.

Now show a little backbone why don't you.
I'm looking for some back and forth with you.
Are you feeling the same as I do?
Now and, now and then.
I'm looking 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 this simple life get so complicated?
Shoes to fill, secrets to spill down you.
Dear in the headlight, 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.
I'm looking for some back and forth with you.
Are you feeling the same as I do?
Now and, now and then.
I'm looking for some back and forth with you.
Are you feeling the same as I do?
Down and out.

(Guitar solo)

You got a lot of nerve.

Now show a little backbone why don't you.
I'm looking for some back and forth with you.
Are you feeling the same as I do?
Now and, now and then.
I'm looking for some back and forth with you.
Are you feeling the same as I do?
Now and, now and then.
I'm looking for some back and forth with you.
Are you feeling the same as I do?
Down and out.
