So you watch me float around
For two weeks straight
And the things you love will drown
With the things I hate
Oh well

It's only for a while
Until I get things right
Just let me dream all day
And stay up all night

I know what your saying
When you're not really talking right
Who are you fooling
Who

Cause I'm going forwards and
Looking backwards, Virginia
Cause I'm going forward
And looking back, West Virginia

You live, you love, you learn
You lose, you gain
And you know you'll never win
You can't even quit the game
You know you'll never win
You can't even quit the game
You know you'll never win
But you can't even quit the game

I know what you're saying
When you're not really talking right
And who are you fooling
Who

Cause I'm going forwards
And looking backwards, Virginia
Cause I'm going forwards
And looking back, West Virginia

Cause I'm going forwards
And looking backwards, Virginia
Cause I'm going forwards
And looking back, West Virginia
Cause I'm going forwards
And looking backward, Virginia
Cause I'm going forwards
And looking back, West Virginia
West Virginia

    General CommentI wonder if it's about a realization that somebody is not who they expected, and is more "West Virginia" than "Virginia", since West Virginia is often perceived to be more of a backwoods, rural place.
