  • Tonight I'm tangled in my blanket of clouds
    Dreaming aloud

    Things just won't do without you, matter of fact
    Oh oh ooh
    I'm on your back
    I'm on your back
    Oh oh ooh
    I'm on your back

    If you'd accept surrender, I'll give up some more
    Weren't you adored

    I cannot be without you, matter of fact
    Oh oh ooh
    I'm on your back

    If you walk out on me
    I'm walking after you
    If you walk out on me
    I'm walking after you

    Another heart is cracked in two
    I'm on your back

    I cannot be without you, matter of fact
    Oh oh ooh
    I'm on your back
    I'm on your back
    Oh oh ooh
    I'm on your back

    If you walk out on me
    I'm walking after you
    If you walk out on me
    I'm walking after you
    If you walk out on me
    I'm walking after you Writer/s: David Grohl

  • Theresa from Murfreesboro, TnThis song makes me melt. I loved it from the first note. The only Foo song that I truly adore.
  • Tracy from Tulsa, OkNever seen the video.

    I view this song as a commitment song. Like it or not, we're going to remain together. Not in a sick way. Love the gong crescendos.
  • Ekristheh from Halath, United StatesThe first time I heard this, I was driving in an unfamiliar town, late at night, on a back road, passing a beautiful cemetery. I was listening to a wonderful radio station I had never heard before, KSWD, which I had come upon by chance. The dreamy depths of the music and the dimly lit memories have combined in my thoughts as a strip of black and white 16mm film.
  • Heather from Cary, NcGlad to know Dave has such a deep understanding of the emotions you go through when you get dumped. My ex claims I dumped him but I am pretty sure I am the dumpee considering all the GD begging I've been doing for him to come back and to no avail. He's found someone else to act out his melodrama for and she is falling for it completely. My friends tell me to be happy - he is someone else's problem now. Well, I don't feel that way. He was the master at convincing me that we should be together, meant for each other, soulmates. Blah blah blah. Had two children with him and a life for 10 years with him until he met a girl from his old High School (Brenda) who he told me he would never fall in love with because he didn't see her that way. Well, today he told me he is moving 5 hours from here to be with her and her daughter Rachel and leaving his own two children in the dust. And this was after years of abuse and being told by him that I was "dingbat" and not in an affectionate Archie Bunker way, either. Anyway, I hate this song. Who walks after someone who breaks up with them. A loser, that's who.
  • Frank from Brampton, Ontario, CanadaThis is one of Foo's few great songs. It's very moving and serene.
  • Kevin from Albany, OrIt's a good song, but I agree with Dave, it's weird video.
  • Ben from Newcastle, EnglandI'd say this is one of the Foo's most emotional songs, along with Everlong. This is one of their best.
