Backstairs Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Taking the backstairs
Verse 2
Before I knew to choose the music of celebrity
I sang backups on the backstairs, the backstairs, the backstairs
Verse 3
I wore out grooves sneaking around the servants' quarters, so
So I knew my way around the backstairs
There is another West, you'll find out
It's nearly thunderous
There is another West, much wilder
You feel it under us
And yet another West,
A new one, when you arrive
Verse 4
I move so slow, I didn't know that I was backing off
It was getting backed out on the backstairs, the backstairs, the backstairs
Verse 5
And I came
And I saw
And I ran
And I won
Verse 6
And I came
And I saw
And I ran
And I won
Verse 7
And I came
And I saw
And I ran
And I won
Verse 8
There is another West, you'll find out
It's nearly thunderous
There is another West, much wilder
You feel it under us
And yet another West,
A new one, when you arrive
Another West,
A new one, when you arrive
Verse 9
Taking the backstairs
Verse 10
And I came
And I saw
And I ran
And I won
Verse 11
I knew my way around the backstairs
