The Steps
by Haim

Album: Women in Music Pt. III (2020)
  • So baby, when I'm near you
    You can't feel me, I'm lightnin'
    You used to come by
    And sit down by my side
    You would come in close
    And take off all my clothes

    Every time I think that I've been takin' the steps
    You end up mad at me for makin' a mess
    I can't understand, why you don't understand me
    Baby
    And every day I wake up and make money for myself
    And though we share a bed
    You know that I don't need your help
    Do you understand?
    You don't understand me
    Baby

    All the ivy
    Is growing sideways
    You won't stop it
    'Till it covers all my place

    Every time I think that I've been takin' the steps
    You end up mad at me for makin' a mess
    I can't understand, why you don't understand me
    Baby
    And every day I wake up and make money for myself
    And though we share a bed
    You know that I don't need your help
    Do you understand?
    You don't understand me
    Baby

    If I go right
    And you go left
    Hey, I know we'll meet up again

    And if you go left
    And I go right
    Hey, maybe that's just life sometimes

    Every time I think that I've been takin' the steps
    You end up mad at me for makin' a mess
    I can't understand, why you don't understand me
    Baby
    And every day I wake up and make money for myself
    And though we share a bed
    You know that I don't need your help
    Do you understand?
    You don't understand me
