It feels like I only go backwards, baby
Every part of me says go ahead
But I got my hopes up again, oh no, not again
Feels like we only go backwards, darling

I know that you think you sound
Silly when you call my name
But I hear it inside my head all day
When I realise I'm just holding onto
The hope that maybe
Your feelings don't show

It feels like I only go backwards, baby
Every part of me says go ahead
Then I got my hopes up again, oh no, not again
Feels like we only go backwards, darling

The seed of all this indecision isn't me, oh no
Because I decided long ago
But that's the way it seems to go when trying
So hard to get to something real
It feels . . .

It feels like I only go backwards, darling
Every part of me says go ahead
I got my hopes up again, no no, not again
Feels like we only go backwards, darling
It feels like I only go backwards, baby
Every part of me says go ahead
I got my hopes up again, no no, not if it
Feels like we only go backwards, darling
It feels like I only go backwards, baby
Every part of me says go ahead
I got my hopes up again, no no, not if it
Feels like we only go backwards, darling

    Song MeaningOriginally by Tame Impala, i want to believe that this song is about a past love. That past love that you never forget and is constantly present in your daily life although a lot of time has passed.

    Is about that feeling you get when you see/meet/hear, after a long time, that person who broke your heart/ or you broke his heart, so officially you know the relationship is over but the love is not. "I know that you think you sound Silly when you call my name, but I hear it inside my head all day". And at that moment you realize that you have always been inside the void and all this is because the Love was very real and nothing ever feel like that. "The seed of all this indecision isn't me, oh no, Because I decided long ago, But that's the way it seems to go when trying, So hard to get to something real" So, although you want to move forward, some things are just meant to be and that love is something HUGE (more than the Universe :P) and it does't matter how much time will pass again, it will always make you feel like going backwards!
