you're the shit and i'm knee-deep in it

it's seemingly never easy to walk away, especially when you have nowhere else to go. surely there were irreconcilable differences, insurmountable challenges, unresolvable difficulties--there was, after all, a good reason why you started to walk away in the first place. so why is it that the good memories are the ones that always seem to come first to mind? why is that sentimentality seems to invade even the unpleasant memories? why is it that it's so fucking hard to walk away? you know that it's not the right place for you to be. you are aware of how your judgment is impaired by loneliness. and yet, you're still knee-deep in it. but walking away doesn't mean you'll never have somewhere else to go. be brave...walk away...someone is waiting for you.

frightened rabbit
: "backwards walk"
from the lp the midnight organ fight (fat cat records, 2008) emusic
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 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
just don't have the proper tools
i 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 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

this song is perfect (though i like the original better - punchier ending). thanks for posting the lyrics!

the first part of this blog, is it something you have written or a song?

the first part is something that came out of me, and all of the shit that i had waded through. and then frightened rabbit wrote a song that captured the entire feeling.
