I thought you were a constant in sickness and in health
But everyone wants somebody with energy and wealth
Will he have a future? Will he make you fall apart?
Will he make you feel like you were young again at heart?
Will be real beautiful and will he be aware
of feelings you would never really show if he weren’t there
But they were

I thought you were a constant for better and for worse
I tried to win you back with words I’d written and rehearsed
I saw they didn’t touch in a way that they once would
If I could get you back then I’d do anything I could
I know you’re pretty busy and it’s rarely on your mind
But It doesn’t matter where I look you’re all that I can find
You are

So take two steps forward and one step back
Lets get it on and get back on track
On to the left then drop your knee
Bring yourself on back to me

I thought you were a constant
You said you’d always be
You said that if we ever broke up it would be because of me
I know that you resent me and you couldn’t let that go
I know you feel uncomfortable that everybody knows
I know I should have said something before it went too far
I know you’re trying to find yourself but I know who you are
I do

I thought you were a constant
You know everyone has doubts
Aside from all my failures I thought we’d work it out
Does he know you have got a speckle in your eye?
Will he have a nook under his arm for you to cry?
Does he make your body ache with passion, well he must
I know I wasn’t adequate in filling you with lust
I was

So take two steps forward and one step back
Lets get it on and get back on track
On to the left then drop your knee
Bring yourself on back to me

Yeah, take two steps forward, one step back
Lets get it on and get back on track
On to the left then drop your knee
Bring yourself on back to me
