One step forward and two steps back

earworms

This is my earworm for the day. Usually my earworms begin right as I wake, but in this case it didn’t hit me until I sat down with my morning coffee.

The song One Step Forward and Two Steps Back by Dessert Rose came out in 1987. That was the year I turned 19, the year after I finished high school. A year I was doing very little because I didn’t know what to do next.

And, ta-dah. It’s in my head right now as I am at home, unemployed in the last three years having years quit I job that made me sad, went back to school for a year, and returned to work for the same organization I left just in a different capacity and ended up even more sad.

I think this might be my current theme song.

Enjoy.

You held me up, held me down
Made me crazy, then you brought me around
Were my darkness and my light
You were my blindness and my sight

Were my shelter and my storm
Made me cold then you made me warm
You were my fever and my cure
Made me doubt then you made me sure

One step forward and two steps back
Nobody gets too far like that
One step forward and two steps back
This kind of dance can never last

You were my hope and my fears
You were my laughter and my tears
Were my destiny and my fate
Kept me movin’, you made me wait

Were my weakness and my power
You were the thorn and the flower
You were my sunshine and the rain
Made me feel so good, brought so much pain

Now one step forward and two steps back
Nobody gets too far like that
One step forward and two steps back
This kind of dance can never last

And we were never really meant for each other
We were never really meant to last
In the years that we danced together
Each step forward we took two steps back
Each step forward we took two steps back

Now one step forward and two steps back
Nobody gets too far like that
One step forward and two steps back
This kind of dance can never last

One step forward and two steps back
Nobody gets too far like that
One step forward and two steps back
This kind of dance can never last
