LYRICS

Backforwards (Punish)

Betty can you hear me calling your name
Your phone keeps ringing for you I’m insane
You turn my head with your hippy hippy shake
I gotta get rid of this heartache

Cause I find it hard to breath
When you’re around it makes me believe
I got a chance with you
What the heck I am suppose to do

Backward and forward its’ two for the show
Three to get ready I got nowhere to go
Take 2 steps forward and do it some more
Till your heart beats on my door

You get me with your tease come hither I know
I’ve always been the kind who stays in control
I’m falling backforwards I can’t seem to think
Your pink dress makes my heart sink

That walk with smile on your face
Your the girl I can’t touch I’m out of
Place can you send me a sign
Come on girl I wanna make you mine

Backward and forward its’ two for the show
Three to get ready I got nowhere to go
I take 2 steps forward and do it some more
Till your heart beats on my door

Can’t you see it’s raining out here
You know I hate the cold I fear
That if our love can’t make it shine
I’ll go back to the future and get lost in…..TIME

You say…

If I show you something will you give me a kiss
Are you kidding Betty gotcha your kiss on my list
We sang and sang I want to know what love is
And showed me the way those little kids

Betty I can see the wink in your eye
Now check me out I’m not a real shy guy
It’s time you should know that my love is all true
Tonite oh BABY I love you

It took me forever to write your song
Could never find the words always seemed to be wrong
But I took 2 steps forward and tried it again
What I found was my best friend

Backward and forward its time for the show
Three to get ready we got somewhere to go
Take 2 steps forward you know its’ true
Tonite oh BABY I love you

Tonite oh Betty I love you
I love you
