Michael Penn — Footdown lyrics

In a little while
I'll forget your name
And with the time we had
I will do the same
'cause I can't belong
To any future
The past's a
Never ending overture
Until it's only now
No matter how
I put my foot down
I want to know my rank
And I want my reward
Or I will make a little war
That you can not afford
I don't mean to be
Somehow unkind
But the bottom of my heart
Is in the backseat
Of my mind
It's a drive with will
I guess until
I put my foot down
I don't mean to be
Somehow unkind
But when I put
My best foot forward
Something's left behind
I'm gonna tell you now
I'm going to make a vow
To put my foot down
