  • One step forward, one step backwards
    One step forward, one step backwards

    Some days I'm up, some days I'm down
    Some days the world is way too loud
    Some days my bed won't let me out
    But I'm okay with missin'...

    Out on the social anxiety
    Out on the phony friends I don't need
    So I just turn off my phone and turn on TV
    'Cause solo's the only way I can breathe
    So I just, so I just

    Do my little lonely dance
    Performing for my only fan
    'Cause it's my kind of party
    My room is where my heart is
    I do my little lonely dance
    I don't need you to understand
    And there's no way I'm stoppin'
    It's like nobody's watching
    As I do my little lonely dance

    One step forward, one step backwards
    One step forward, one step backwards

    These days I'm good, these days I'm fine
    These days I'd rather pay no mind
    Silence is in town, keep her around
    And you'll be glad you're missing

    Out on the social anxiety
    Out on the phony friends I don't need
    So I just turn off my phone and turn on TV
    'Cause solo's the only way I can breathe
    So I just, so I just

    Do my little lonely dance
    Performing for my only fan
    'Cause it's my kind of party
    My room is where my heart is
    I do my little lonely dance
    I don't need you to understand
    And there's no way I'm stoppin'
    It's like nobody's watching
    As I do my little lonely dance

    One step forward, one step backwards
    One step forward, one step backwards

    All I need is me, myself, and I (One step forward, one step backwards)
    All I need is me, myself, and I (One step forward, one step backwards)
    All I need is peace and quiet
    Shhh, that's better

    Some days I'm up, some days I'm down
    Some days the world is way too loud
    Some days my brain's locking me out so I just...

    Do my little lonely dance
    Performing for my only fan
    'Cause it's my kind of party
    My room is where my heart is
    I do my little lonely dance
    I don't need you to understand
    And there's no way I'm stoppin'
    It's like nobody's watching
    As I do my little lonely dance

    I do my little lonely dance
    I do my little lonely dance
    Like nobody's watching
    I do my little lonely dance (One step forward, one step backwards)
    I do my little lonely dance (One step forward, one step backwards)
    I do my little lonely dance
    Like nobody's watching
    I do my little lonely dance Writer/s: Cody Carson
