The Way You (Lyrics)

Jan 13 2022 Lyrics English

These are the official lyrics for the song “The Way You”. It’s track #2 from the album “A Ship to Something”.

Verse 1

In my mind you’ve been floating for a while
It’s brand new, it is fleeting
Some days, I might feel I’m oh so near
And some days, I keep falling

Pre-chorus 1

Deal the cards just right
Keep up hope, by my side

Chorus 1

I love the way you hold your arms
Around yourself to keep you warm
But end up running anyway
Into my safe arms just to stay

And I’d love the way you’d cheer me up
When nothing works and I get stuck
Inside my head with problems I can’t
Find my way without your hands

Post-Chorus 1

But I know it will be time for me to go
When you see my shoulder hanging low
Oh __

Verse 2

I can’t work a miracle or dream
In fact, it’s hard to work at all
My flesh is as good as I preserve it
And my mind needs your patience

Pre-Chorus 2

Give me a chance and I will too
Throw away the checklist, bury it for you

Chorus 2

And I love the way you sing my songs
And even with the words all wrong
Any melody from you will
Give me strength to write ten new

And I love the way you’d drag me from
The endless work and beating drum
Of hesitation and ambition
Brewed into a money cocktail

Post-Chorus 2

That knows the only time for me to go
Was when I saw your shoulders hanging low


And as I age the list grows longer
‘Till no puzzle piece will fit at all
It’s not fair to expect all this from someone
But god dang it I will try

Chorus 3

But I would love the way you drink your tea
Or fold your towels, stand by me
When sunrise turns into sunset
Some children running ‘round our head

And I’d love the mess you leave behind
If space and time would be so kind
To tangle us and intertwine
Two lives that just might coincide

Post-Chorus 3

And the truth is I would let it all go
If it turns out you’re nothing like this song
