One Step Forwards, Two Steps Back

Filed under: O — jacquirichards @ 7:01 pm


All my life been waitin’ for you,

Made a move, to be with you,

But you said you preferred us two,

To be together, but single, too.

Like one step forwards and two steps back,

Found a map, but got lost on track,

A champagne glass that accidentally cracked,

A new pair of shoes that were too slack.

You said that we could date,

Spent all my cash, but things weren’t so great,

Like an awfully long queue and a very long wait,

A Valentine’s card, that got posted through the wrong gate.

A new house, then you find damp,

A love letter written, then no stamp,

A brand new car, scratched by a clamp,

A light bulb not working in a lamp.

Just like one step forwards, and an accidental slip,

A cancelled flight on a round the world trip,

Icy cold water when you’ve gone for a dip,

A peck on the cheek, then a busted lip !
