The page contains the lyrics of the song "Walking Backwards Down the Stairs" by Larry Norman.

Lyrics

walking backwards down the stairs
trying to get higher
how can i get anywhere
walking backwards down the stairs
watching life elude me slipping through my grasp
oh i know the truth at last
but to reach the top i’ve
got to stop from
walking backwards down the stairs
trying to get higher
how can i get anywhere
walking backwards down the stairs
people stop to watch me wonder what i’m doing
what direction i’m pursuing
i pretend i’m free
but actually i’m
walking backwards down the stairs
trying to get higher
how can i get anywhere
walking backwards down the stairs
