I'm working on my backwards walk
Walking with no shoes or socks
And the time rewinds to the end of May
I wish we'd 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
And 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
Just don't have the proper tools
I get hammered, forget that you exist
There's no way that 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
'Cause the trousers seem to love your floor

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

    General CommentThe line is
    "i wish we'd never met that MAN today"!

    Its clearly saying she cheated on him and he wants to go back in time
    to before that happened,that would make things all good again right?

    Every song on the album has an underlying theme of cheating,
    as his girl cheated on him before he wrote the album.

    Heres an ironic point...
    In the second song on the album called "i feel better"
    he says "this the last song i write about you"
    Ironically there are 12 more songs after this one lol,
    i know this dont relate to this song i jus thought it was funny.
