"Like The Way I Do" as written by and Melissa Etheridge....
Is it so hard to satisfy your senses?
You found out to love me you have to climb some fences
Scratching and crawling along the floor to touch you
And just when it feels right you say you found someone to hold you
Does she like I do

Baby tell me does she love you like the way I love you
Does she stimulate you, attract and captivate you
Tell me does she miss you existing just to kiss you
Like the way I do
Tell me does she want you, infatuate and haunt you
Does she know just how to shock and electrify and rock you
Does she inject you, seduce you and affect you
Like the way I do
Like the way I do

Can I survive all the implications
Even if I tried could you be less than an addiction
Don't you think I know there's so many others
Who would beg steal and lie, fight, kill and die
Just to hold you, hold you like I do

Baby tell me does she love you like the way I love you
Does she stimulate you, attract and captivate you
Tell me does she miss you existing just to kiss you
Like the way I do
Tell me does she want you, infatuate and haunt you
Does she know just how to shock and electrify and rock you
Does she inject you, seduce you and affect you
Like the way I do

Oh, nobody loves you, like the way I do
Nobody wants you, like the way I do
Nobody needs you, like the way I do
Nobody aches, nobody aches just to hold you
Like the way I do
No, no, no

Tell me does she love you like the way I love you
Does she stimulate you, attract and captivate you
Tell me does she miss you, existing just to kiss you
Like the way I do
Oh, tell me does she want you, infatuate and haunt you
Does she know just how to shock and electrify and rock you
Does she inject you, seduce you and affect you, baby
Like the way I do

No, like the way I do
Oh, ho, yeah

    General CommentI love this song and can identify ! I have read somewhere that melissa wrote this song about a woman she was in a "non monagamous" relationship with,and she wasn't too happy about it,and this woman told her that she had a crush on someone else,and she's like asking her "what can she give you that i can't".Just a passionate song!

    My InterpretationI think that she is saying in the verses that the person that she is with wants a non-monogamous relationship and has a desire/crush on or for someone else and is basically asking her what this other person can give her what she herself can't and also accusing her of not putting enough effort into making the relationship work "you found out to love me you have to climb some fences"

    General CommentDoes this song even need an explanation??? I'm not usually a big fan of Melissa's music, though I love her voice. But I heard this song at a club last night and just HAD to have it! The lyrics are amazing, and the entire song just reaches out and touches you...right..there. Her wife must be a very, very lucky woman!

    General CommentI've been in love with her voice since I was little. I grew up with her music, and a part of me will always be in love with her. And every song she writes, every word makes me ache. She's sincere, and I admire that. She feels what she feels, and she's not afraid to fucking scream it.

    General Commentwhat i love about this song is when melissa was writing I Want You she put the tape in the wrong way in her recorder and it played the guitar riff backwards. that's where she got the guitar riff from this song. So pretty much it's the song I Want You played backwards
