about

The lead single from Defences’ upcoming debut album is the power-driven 'Two Steps Back'. The song inspires the idea of not giving up when life’s got you down, getting back on your feet and coming out stronger than ever.

lyrics

Take a second to look around
What is it that you think you’ve found?
You’re taking two steps back
Trying to see what it is we lack

They keep running their mouths
Tired words only fuel the flame
We’ve got something to prove?
Patience is a virtue

‘Cause when it rains, when it rains it pours and doesn't stop
And when the light gets switched on there’s no switching off
Not giving up, no way, I’m not letting go of this
It never stops, keep on moving till the world stops spinning

You see me on the ground
Don’t mistake it for the end
I’m healing while I’m down
Getting set for another round

I hear them taunting me
Can’t they see I’m taking two steps back
Bracing for the attack

They keep running their mouths
Tired words only fuel the flame
We’ve got something to prove?
Patience is our virtue

‘Cause when it rains, when it rains it pours and doesn't stop
And when the light gets switched on there’s no switching off
Not giving up, no way, I’m not letting go of this
It never stops, keep on moving till the world stops spinning

No I’m not letting go of this
Not giving in, not for anything
I’m only healing when I’m down
Won’t know what hit you when I come back around

So tell me something
You seem to have this all worked out
What happens when your confidence comes crashing down?
I’ll show you something
Your judgements only spur me on
Not backing down, who gets the last laugh now?

‘Cause when it rains, when it rains it pours and doesn't stop
And when the light gets switched on there’s no switching off
Not giving up, no way, I’m not letting go of this
It never stops, keep on moving till the world stops spinning

Not giving up, I’m only healing when I’m down
It never stops, won’t know what hit you when I come back around
Won’t give
