Backslap

And all that I need is a little love, a bit of wisdom
To keep me chasing all these tails, I’m in circles floundering
A backslap – to tell me that sometimes the chase is worth chasing
There’s times I’m tired and thinking I give

Everything I need to breathe
Everything I need to see
Everything I give is free
If you would give yourself to me
All these things that I believe
All these heights that I achieve
All these wrongs that I deceive
I have no tricks left up my sleeve

Baby, I feel the warmth receding
To the point where I don’t feel safe saying baby at all
I need a blackslap to give me some kind of intervention
I cannot feed my heart with claustrophobic empty sighs

Every beat I need to hear
Every pause I seem to fear
Every chord just makes it clear
I’m feeling slightly awkward here
The melody it dies of thirst
Heart of the song it swells and bursts
I feel the chorus is now cursed
The next verse will be the worst

Everything I need to breathe
Everything I need to see
Everything I give is free
If you would give yourself to me
If next to you is not my place
You need to say it to my face
Instead of leaving me disgraced
Leaving you without a trace

And all that I need is a little love, a bit of thought
To keep me chasing all these tails, I’m in circles floundering
A backslap – to tell me that sometimes the chase is worth chasing
I don’t ask for much from whom I love
And all that I need is a little love, a bit of respect
To keep me chasing all these tails, I’m in circles floundering
A backslap – to tell me that sometimes the chase is worth chasing
I don’t ask for much from whom I love
