"Better Back Off" as written by Tom Teeley and Marshall Crenshaw....
Now you can't always get what you want
No, you can't always get what you need
Sometimes you lose what you thought you had
Now that's a real bad deal indeed
But when you're angry at life itself
Having a bad, bad day
Don't judge yourself so brutally
I can't stand it when you talk that way
Oh baby, baby
Better back off of that stuff
You'd better take it slow
I know you know
That you're talking about someone I love
Did you say what I think I heard?
Did you mean what I think you said?
Why don't you redirect your rage
Onto someone else instead
Now, we all have to walk that line
Between sorrow and happiness
Come over here and take my hand
Won't you please give us both a rest?
Oh baby, baby
Better back off that stuff
You'd better take it slow
I know you know
That you're talking about someone I love
Oh baby, baby
I've heard enough
'Cause I know you will come through
And you know it too
You're talking about someone I love
