"Back To Back" as written by and Paul Westerberg....
Back to back to back to back to back

Back to back
Now how you gonna hold me
Back to back
How you gonna show me
Back to back
Baby that's a fact

You know that I made a mistake
You know that I will stand face to face
And now I gotta take it
Back to back
Back to back

Why don't you put a book upon our heads
And put some pistols in our hands
Count twenty paces at dawn
Count twenty questions we'll get wrong

You know that I made a mistake
You know that I will stand face to face
If you want
Face to face
If you only turn around
Turn around
I can't take it

Back to back
Back to back
Back to back

We're standin' back to back
We're livin' back to back
You're holdin' back to back
And now I'm gonna hold me
Back to back, to back to back, to back

    General CommentI think it's about a man in a relationship who wronged his girlfriend or wife and now she's giving him the cold treatment. He's willing to apologize and seek forgiveness right to her face, and perhaps he's even willing to take the physical and verbal abuse she might dish out, if only she would face him.

    General CommentI like the fact that you can choose to interpret it as "Can't take it back". Sneaky. :)
