Olivia rodrigo - 1 step forward, 3 steps back

Called you on the phone today
Just to ask you how you were
All I did was speak normally
Somehow I still stroke a nerve

You got me fucked up in the head, boy
Never doubted myself so much
I got my pretty and my fun boy
I hate that I give you power, or, that kind of stuff

'Cause it's always one step forward and three steps back
I'm the love of your life until I make you mad
It's always one step forward and three steps back
Do you love me, want me, hate me, boy? I don't understand
No, I don't understand


And maybe in some masochistic way
I couldn't find it all exciting
Like which lover will I get today?
Will you walk me to the door or send me home crying

It's one step forward and three steps back
I'm the love of your life until I make you mad
It's always one step forward and three steps back
Do you love me, want me, hate me, boy? I don't understand

No, it's back and forth, did I say something wrong?
It's back and forth, going over everything I said
It's back and forth, did I do something wrong?
It's back and forth, baby, this is all your fault

Instead it's one step forward and three steps back
And I'd leave you but the roller coaster is all I've ever had
Yeah, it's one step forward and three steps back
Do you love me, want me, hate me, boy?
I don't understand
No, I don't understand
