tame impala – feels like we only go backwards

An anthem to atavism, with a great video directed by Joe Pelling and Becky Sloan, made entirely from plasticine collage. Off the album Lonerism, which came out on Modular in November 2012.

It feels like I only go backwards, baby
Every part of me says go ahead
I got my hopes up again, oh no, not again
Feels like we only go backwards, darling.

I know that you think you sound silly when you call my name
But I hear it inside my head all day
When I realize I’m just holding on to the hope that maybe your feelings don’t show

It feels like I only go backwards, baby
Every part of me says go ahead
Then I got my hopes up again, oh no, not again
Feels like we only go backwards darling.

The seed of all this indecision isn’t me, oh no
‘Cause I decided long ago
But that’s the way it seems to go
I’ve tried so hard to get to something real, it feels…
It feels like I only go backwards, darling…
