Falling Backwards

This song is by Fairground Attraction and appears on the album The First Of A Million Kisses (1988).

Like water wears away a stone,
time gently erodes memories
And when love's been replaced
by a bitter aftertaste
It's hard to recall
just what started it all

But
I remembered what I thought I'd forgotten
when I saw you again today
I resisted and I can be stubborn
but my resistance just crumbled away
and now I'm falling backwards
into your arms again

Days turned to years and went by
and my tears eventually dried
but the salt that remained
made me thirsty again
Well, nobody's all bad
and I couldn't stay mad

When I remembered what I thought I'd forgotten
when I saw you again today
I resisted and I can be stubborn
but my resistance just crumbled away
and now I'm falling backwards
into your arms again

Oh, sweetness, it's madness
to start this all again
But when we kiss
I'll gladly let them come and certify me insane, oh

I remembered that heatwave summer
We were practically kids
You persisted and I surrendered
and we were glad when I finally did

And now I'm falling backwards
into your arms again
Falling backwards,
falling backwards,
falling backwards,
into your arms again
