I'm working on my backwards walk
Walking with no shoes and socks
And the time rewinds to the end of May
I wish we never met then met today

I'm working on my faults and cracks
Filling in the blanks and gaps
And when I write them out, they don't make sense
I need you to pencil in the rest

I'm working on drawing a straight line
And I'll draw until I get one right
It's bold and dark, girl, can't you see?
I done drawn a line between you and me

I'm working on erasing you
I just don't have the proper tools
I'll get hammered, forget that you exist
There's no way I'm forgetting this

I'm working hard on walking out
Shoes keep sticking to the ground
My clothes won't let me close the door
These trousers seem to love your floor

I've been working on my backwards walk
There's nowhere else for me to go
Except back to you just one last time
Say yes before I change my mind
Say yes before...

You're the shit and I'm knee-deep in it

    My Opinioni made a couple of changes, including the last line and changing it to "trousers seem to love your floor", and "it's bold and dark girl can't you see?", and "blanks and gaps", and "the time rewinds to the end of May"

    the suggested fourth line doesn't make sense to me, he definitely says "we"

    anyway, love this song, some good wailing in it :) amazed there's no other comments!!
