One Step Forward (two steps back)

Notes

As the more astute Misipi fans will note, this is a quote from our song, "Gotta Get Lucky Sometime", it's such a great line that we couldn't resist re-quoting it... sorry about that lyric aficionados... but can I quote back " when you're on a good thing, stick to it". This is one of the songs that didn't behave itself till the 3rd Demo, but it finally fell into place..

Lyrics

V1) I use to be young, but now I'm old
I use to be hot, but now I'm cold
Use to be a rich man, but now I'm poor
I've had a mile of trouble only had 100 Yds of joy

CH) Life sure is funny as a matter of fact
Well it's one step forward and two steps back

2-- I use to be mean, now I'm kind
I've seen a lot of things, but now I'm blind
They say I'm payin' for what i did before
I've had a mile of trouble only had 100 Yds of joy

3-- I once was on top, but then i fell
Once was heaven, but now it's hell
They say i'm a Man, but i feel like a Boy
Had a mile of trouble only had a 100Yds of joy
