Better Back Off lyrics

(m. crenshaw, t. teeley)

Now you cant always get what you want
No, you cant always get what you need
Sometimes you lose what you thought you had
Now thats a real bad deal indeed
But when youre angry at life itself
Having a bad, bad day
Dont judge yourself so brutally
I cant stand it when you talk that way
Oh baby, baby
Better back off of that stuff
Youd better take it slow
I know you know
That youre talking about someone I love
Did you say what I think I heard?
Did you mean what I think you said?
Why dont you redirect your rage
Onto someone else instead
Now, we all have to walk that line
Between sorrow and happiness
Come over here and take my hand
Wont you please give us both a rest?
Oh baby, baby
Better back off that stuff
Youd better take it slow
I know you know
That youre talking about someone I love
Oh baby, baby
Ive heard enough
cause I know you will come through
And you know it too
Youre talking about someone I love
