"Two Steps Back" as written by Nathan Moran Butler, Craig David, Harold Spencer Jr. Lilly, Jimmy Elton Jr. Cozier, Kenneth Karlin and Carsten Schack....
You know I'm the kind of guy that does a nine to five
Working real hard 'cause that's the way I live my life
Back home just me & you girl all alone
With no one interrupting, switch off the phone
But I could be that other guy
Who comes home late night after night then tells you lies
So why you tripping out on me girl all the time
When everyday it's only you that's on my mind oh

Every time we take one step forward you take two steps back
Every time it's right you bring left back oh
Girl you really ought to think about it
'cause there's really no doubt about it
You know I've been there for you & that's the truth

You know you're the kind of girl that doesn't need to front
Keep it real let me know just what you want
Sometimes you just don't know when to stop
You worry so much over nothing
You risk losing what you've got
Now can't you see there's no other girl
I think you're the most beautiful woman in this world yeah
But you say I don't appreciate ya
And I don't know how to treat ya
We don't do the same things we did no more

[Chorus (x2)]

It wasn't that long ago, you told me that you loved me so
Don't forget all the nights we shared
When you told me girl just how much you cared
You think I'm being led astray, but that's the way players play
I'm not that kind of man, why can't you understand 'cause I
Want you to trust in me, baby girl can't you see
You're only gonna mess things up
You've done enough why can't you stop 'cause
You're gonna lose what's good for you
And that's the last thing you want to do
Won't find another like me oh

[Chorus (x2)]

    General CommentI love this song.
    I think that it's really clear.
    It's about a man and woman in a relationship. And she keeps comparing him to other men and comparing herself to other women. And, basically, she's about to mess up the relationship by doing this.
    For instance, they'll have a great weekend or something and she might complain about how other people take a week-long trip. That's two steps back.
