Gold Complex: Backbone Lyrics:
I can be direct.
Least my intentions known. Least my intentions known

I can be persistent.
At least my thoughts they show. At least my thoughts they show.

I can be perfectly honest.
At least the truth it grows. At least the truth it grows.

I can be aggressive.
At least the pain it slows. At least the pain it slows.

PRE-CHORUS:
At times I wish our energies
Wouldn’t connect ferociously
I remind my self that I’ll find peace eventually

At times I wish our energies
Wouldn’t connect ferociously
I remind my self that Ill find peace eventually oh

CHORUS:
I just wanna feel your backbone
I just wanna flick your latch on
Admit it starts to feel unnatural
I just wanna feel your backbone

V2:
Might not be correct
Least I admit my faults
Least I admit my faults

And baby I’m the first to admit I can be a little bit dramatic
Just let those cameras roll
Just let those cameras roll

I wanna feel it babe, I wanna feel it babe.
I wanna feel it babe, just let your backbone slide.
I wanna feel it babe, I wanna feel it babe.
I wanna feel it babe, just let your backbone slide.
I wanna feel it babe, I wanna feel it babe.
I wanna feel it babe, just let your backbone slide.
I wanna feel it babe, I wanna feel it babe.
I just wanna feel your backbone.
