    Seeing you is painful bliss
    Bliss because our lips pressed
    Painful bcause it wasn't a kiss
    No passion
    No want
    No heat
    Just lips pressed together
    And nothing where they meet
    I'm not understanding it
    Sometimes I think you love me
    But you keep on playing me
    Using me
    Making me think there is something fundamentally wrong with me
    I'm writing poems of your beauty
    `Cause I love you
    ****
    Too weak to say "loved"
    Now I'm racking my brain trying to figure this out
    I'm finally starting to make sense of things
    Everything is going backwards
    Starting at the finish
    And finishing at the start
    I got a reverse beat in my heart
    How do you look at your future
    And see your past
    My friends are trying to console me
    Using the analogy of water in the glass
    Saying, "Look at the glass half full
    Instead of half empty"
    But dogs...I can't even see the glass
    They're not understanding
    Water trickles up my face to my optics
    Dripping north to my brain
    Now it's raining in myy head
    Backwards
    This like that I'm living is backwards
    Where the bad guy finishes first
    And the nice guy doesn't even start
    So maybe I should be a bad guy
    Sleeping around
    Cheating on women
    That's the only way I see me winning
    Hey...maybe it she be all about me
    Why should I lend a helping hand
    When people treat me like less than a man
    Using my good will against me
    Backwards
    Fore-sight is my past
    Hind-sight is my future
    `Cause I know what's coming
    But I don't know what's been
    It's all the same to me
    I step out of time
    And watch my future slip away gradually
    How can this be
    I know what it is
    I grew up old school
    Listening to Marvin Gaye, Lenny Williams, Bob Marley and Muddy Waters
    Now I'm treading in lonely waters
    Because I'm a romantic
    I think it's fantastic when you can find true love
    But love is running away from me
    It's saying, "Stay the hell away from me"
    `Cause I can't change with the times
    Where lies and deciet have conquered the mind
    I don't have it in me
    It's not in my nature
    Looks like I got to tell love, "Peace and later"
    Living the lonely life
    Then just when I get use to it
    A woman walks in
    Sweeps me off my feet
    Backwards
    Everything is going in reverse
    I'm saying **** like
    "You love I"
    Which really means that she loves me
    Then I realize
    It's all a lie
    Backwards
