Dj Shadow - Backstage Girl lyrics

She told me I was taking her places she had never been before, but reall
She was taking me places I promised myself I'd never go to
damn...
Let me start at the beginning...

Alright man I want all of you brothers to get rid of...
And show .... sweet honey for your mouth
Yeah yeah yeah one two

Some say she was from Cali
Some say the Carolinas
Mom was a belly dancer
Pop was a neverminder
No drugs or alcohol
No weed or marijuana
You'd think that backstage was the last place you'd find her
First time I saw her kinda
reminded me of them chicks you see at Caribana
Friendly and talkative and looking so marvellous...
Dead nicotine filling like ..... in the city of godesses
But I'm digressin', please pardon if
I start trailing off
Or fading out of my consciousness
It's just that when I think... oh girl my whole world collapses
I'm so enraptured in all overflow this
She approached me with a smirk to say We can do work no matter what time or day of the week it is
So thorough that backstage girl she'll fall to her knees just to prey on my weaknesses

I mean I told her straight up,
you know I got a significant other...
she ain't care
She said for tonight I just wanna be your insignificant other
.... what? God damn...

we left the club at around two
Just enough time to meet my niggas for round two
At another spot, DJ playing the sounds to
Hopefully divert me from being a scoundrel
In the spot making my rounds through
The crowd trying to throw her off
but she's on me like a bloodhound, you
Wouldn't believe how hard I tried to fight it
Passions and desires were closing in
And that's what it amounts to
I looked her in the eyes
And said, "I don't even know your name
It feels wrong even though I don't show it."
She said, "I wish I could tell you the same
But I won't tell you my name cause I want you to
Fuck me like you don't know it."
I responded with a smirk to let her know
We could work no matter what time or day of the week it is
So thorough that backstage girl fell down to her knees just to prey on my weaknesses
But man can you fight it? Go ahead

You'd think that backstage
Would be the last place you'd find her
You'd think the backstage
Would be the last place you'd find her

Been riding all around the world, seen so many faces
But I'm always looking for love in all the wrong places
Been all around the world, seen so many faces
But I'm always looking for love in all the wrong places

I woke up the next morning all tangled up in her hair
and that's when I realized she had me right where she wanted me
She told me I'd taken her places that she'd never been before
But really she took me to a place I promised myself I'd never return to
And I was fucked up
And the thing was I didn't feel bad about what I'd done
I just felt stupid for trying to fight it for so long
I mean really, who I was fooling
I knew what time it was soon as I saw her
Soon as she smiled at a nigger I could tell what her favorite position was
And I damn sure gave it to her
I thought I had changed
But niggas never change
But it took that one night
That one passionate night for me to realize what I needed to do
I gotta stop fucking with these hos off of MySpace dog

Some say she was from Cali, some say the Carolinas
Mom was a belly dancer, pop' was a neverminder
No drugs or alcohol no weed no marijuana
You'd think that backstage was the last place you'd find her

You'd think the backstage
Would be the last place you'd find her
Been all around the world
Seen so many faces
Was always looking for love in all the wrong places
Been all around the world
Seen so many faces
Was always looking for love in all the wrong places
Been all around the world
Seen so many faces
Well well well
Was always looking for love in all the wrong places
Oh yeah
Been all around the world
Seen so many faces
Backstage girl
Was always looking for love in all the wrong places
