"Going Backwards" as written by Billy Mann, Luke Potashnick, Steve Robson and Richard Fleeshman....
Disconnected from what we are
I tried to reach you, get back to the start
Why can't we love
Just because I think your funny
Even though nobody does

Did we start a fire just to watch it burn?
Did I push too hard and think you'd never learn?

Is everything going backwards?
Is mercury in retrograde?
I thought I knew what love was
Now tomorrow is yesterday
Is everything going backwards

Freeze the picture, stop the sun
Go underground, forget what we've done
I can't cut the chord, I'm not like you
I don't want something that means nothing to you

Did we start a fire just to watch it burn?
Did I push too hard and think you'd never learn?

Is everything going backwards?
Is mercury in retrograde?
I thought I knew what love was
Now tomorrow is yesterday
Is everything going backwards

Every word to you say but I know you never felt
Do you want somebody else, somebody else?

Is everything going backwards?
Is mercury in retrograde?
I thought I knew what love was
Now tomorrow is yesterday
Is everything going backwards
