(written by: Slash / Eric Dover)
Now you've slipped away And found a place to stay Who do I congratulate But I'm happy for you Where are you today I sense that you're afraid And I don't know what to do

I miss you, but what does it change This confusion feels the same Forget you and let you leave But I'm still thinkin' it through it's been the conflict between us That's kept me from sinking before You drove me crazy and I let you Come do it some more Put the past to bed, we've done it before

Now we're back and forth again Can we help this pointless thing Swingin' like a hinge To the place we always meet

There's nothing to say Except loneliness is strange Cause you wear the face That I never can leave And I know you're gonna call Cause you know just where I'll be Once you come and find me here I'll be happy for me So happy to be Not alone anymore We've done it before

Now we're back and forth again Can we help this pointless thing Swingin' like a hinge To the place we always meet

It's such a shame how little things Can change your minds Don't just sit there filing your nails And passing the time I can't let you bottle it up And take it too far Carrying all of that weight Is the hardest part

Now we're back and forth again Can we help this pointless thing Swingin' like a hinge To the place we always meet Back and forth again Back and forth again Back and forth again Back and forth again
