lyrics

'Keep it up like this', she said, 'and we've got nothing going.
'We've gone to wood. We're wolves with our waking hearts.
There's ghosts on you. There's ghosts on me.
And they serve our dirty conscience.
Why go forward when you can go back?

Oooh ra ra ra. Said ooh raa raa.
Do you make it hard on purpose?
Oooh ra ra. Where's that change?
Oh it's hard to keep moving when the tracks all seem so stacked.
Why go forward? Why go forward when you can go back?'

And I can't keep pointing that way to you.
No I can't keep my head down.

We're treading earth at the edge
we're just faking we're moving at all.
It's a clever game baby but maybe too rich for my blood.
So put out your candle and turn out your light.
Close your nightgown, it's cold.
Why go forward when you can go back?

Oooh ra ra ra, said, Ooh raa raa.
Do you make it hard on purpose?
Oooh ra ra. Where's that change?
Oh it's hard to keep moving when the best has all been had.
Why go forward? Why go forward when you can go back?

Why go forward? Why go forward when you can go back?
