​Backfired

This song is by Masters At Work.

My man, your plans backfired when you least expected them to
My man, your plans backfired now that I'm rejecting you
My love, your kiss no longer seems to be to satisfy
My love, my tears, I can't cry a river 'cause the well has run dry

(Backfired)
I'll no longer play the fool
I'll no longer take your abuse
You said, baby, we are through
I don't need your bad news
Oh, oh your bad news, oh, oh

My man, your games backfired at you when you broke all the rules
You played yourself that now my love is coming back to you, oh
Go lie somewhere else, I don't need ya knocking at my door, oh
Stay by yourself, I don't need ya, I can't take no more

(Backfired)
I'll no longer play the fool
I'll no longer take your abuse
You said, baby, we are through
I don't need your bad news, no, no
(Backfired)

I'll no longer play the fool
I'll no longer take your abuse
You said, baby, we are through
'Cause I don't need you

I could have gave you lovin' just like you wanted
But you'll never do right by me
(Never do right by me)
Instead you felt the need to hang on and pretend
So, now I've gotta set you free

I claim the victory, it backfired, yes it did
You know it backfired, oh, oh
Gave you lovin' just like you wanted me to
I could have gave you lovin' just like you wanted

But you'll never do right by me
(Never do right by me)
Instead you felt the need to hang on and pretend
So, now I've gotta set you free
(Set you free)

I claim the victory
(Backfired)
(She's got the victory)
(Backfired)
(She's got it, she's got it)
(Backfired)
(She's got the victory)

I don't need to, I don't need to cry about it

(This time it, this time it, this time it backfired)
I'm gonna laugh about it, ha, ha
Oh, backfired
Oh, backfired

Backfired on you
You see, you played yourself
Back when you knew I was the only one for you
I'll no longer take your abuse
Oh, baby we are through

It backfired
(It backfired, baby)

It backfired
(I wanna set you free, I wanna set you free)
Oh, baby, babe
I just can't take it no more
It's over now, over now
I don't wanna take no more, no more, from you
Oh, baby

No bad news
My love, my tears
I can't cry a river, the well has run dry
(Backfired)
And I don't need to sacrifice
Anything
After been, for you

(It backfired, baby)
Oh, baby

And now I say to you
No longer will I cry
No longer will I try
No longer will I sacrifice
And no more lies and alibis
I'll no longer play the fool
Oh baby

It backfired
(Oh, oh, oh)
It did, it backfired on you
(Oh, oh, oh)

I claim the victory
Claim the victory
