"Back Against the Wall" as written by and Moses Anthony/thompson Davis....
They held up as long as they could
All those people at my feet
Yeah
I was so smug in my prime
Up at the height of my conceit

Oh, I thought I would never fall
Oh, I got to tell you all

I got my back up against the wall
You know this ain't the first time
I got my back up against the wall

It's been a long fight
I didn't know I'd have to make no
And I'm so afraid
It's gonna be more than I can take now baby
You know what I mean

I thought I'd never fall
Oh, I got to you all

I got my back up against the wall
I ain't jokin' y'all

I got my back against the wall
Sometimes I find myself with my back against the wall

I got my back against the wall
Just like a lot of good people now

They love me all around the world
I can't understand you girl

I wonder why the pure in heart
Oh, they got to have a judgment day
I wonder why
And I wonder what the Lord has made
Now that he plans to throw away
I wonder, what did he really say

I thought I would never fall
Oh, I got to tell you all

I got my back against the wall
Sometimes you find yourself down on the street
Yeah you do

I got my back against the wall
Sometimes no matter how hard you try
You still take a fall, oh yeah

I got my back against the wall
Last night I started to cry
And I cried all night long
Yes I did

I got my back against the wall
Last night I started to pray
And I prayed all night long

And that's when I got that feeling y'all
Down in my soul
It's just a part of life
It's just a part of your life
