i. when you need a guide i’ll light your way, i’ll be where you you need me, what else can i do, my love, but fall for you ii. is it all truly broken? irreparable mistakes? let’s take our time, don’t we have to try? iii. and so sudden you lose your faith, i will provide you with a reason to believe iv. one step closer to the end of the world and i fight, you did it, but i wont admit it v. the things i know are mine, i give them up for you, for all i ever wanted was for you to want me too vi. i’d never ask you cause deep down i’m certain i know what you’d say vii. drifting apart like two sheets of ice, my love, frozen hearts growing colder with time viii. i stuck around, i did behave, i saved you every time, i was a fool for love, i was a fool  ix. you don’t want me, no, you don’t need me, like i want you, oh,  like i need you x. if you are coming home, i’ll be out on my own, i don’t need you to give me back the open wounds xi. i’ve been running marathons, while you’re still standing still, and i’d be anything for you, but i’ll never fit the bill xii. spoiled, selfish little child, went out to play out in the wild, i found you shaking like a leaf, underneath your family tree xiii. i wonder are you like me, were you left in the fire, are you raising yourself, above your father’s empire — LISTEN

“Back Stabbers” Song Lyrics

What they do)
(They smile in your face)
All the time they want to take your place
The back stabbers (back stabbers)
(They smile in your face)
All the time they want to take your place
The back stabbers (back stabbers)

All you fellows who have someone
And you really care, yeah, yeah
Then it’s all of you fellows
Who better beware, yeah yeah
Somebody’s out to get your lady
A few of your buddies they sure look shady
Blades are long, clenched tight in their fist
Aimin’ straight at your back
And I don’t think they’ll miss

(What they do)
(They smile in your face)
All the time they want to take your place
The back stabbers (back stabbers)
I keep gettin’ all these visits
From my friends, yeah, what they doin to me
They come to my house
Again and again and again and again, yeah
So are they there to see my woman
I don’t even be home but they just keep on comin’
What can I do to get on the right track
I wish they’d take some of these knives off my back

(What they do)
(They smile in your face)
All the time they want to take your place
The back stabbers
(Back stabbers)
Low down, dirty

(What they do)
(They smile in your face)
Smiling faces
Smiling faces sometimes tell lies (back stabbers)
(They smile in your face)
I don’t need low down
Dirty bastards (back stabbers)

“Back Stabbers” (“the pinnacle of Philly Soul”) was released in August 1972.

Song was played in “We Do Not Touch The First Ladies” when it was revealed that SSA Tom is B613 - (the ears and eyes of B613 inside the White House) AND when Adnan Salif’s true boss was revealed  - Mama Pope. \o/
