Wrong way on the wrong side of town
Your feet are so stuck to the ground
I’ve been known to sometimes get away
But you never leave

This is the way you are
Don’t change yourself for me
This is the way you are
Don’t change yourself for me
This is the way you are
Don’t change yourself for me

This air isn’t anywhere else
It makes me talk to myself
Tells me where to breathe and
Where to smoke
I might not leave

This is the way you are
Don’t change yourself for me
This is the way you are
Don’t change yourself for me
This is the way you are
Don’t change yourself for me
(Theres nothing wrong with that)
This is the way you are
(That’s just the way that you are)
Don’t change yourself for me

(That’s just the way that you are)
(That’s just the way that you are)

    General Commenti dig this song, slow and doesnt really hit anything special but really nice and mellow, and i love the chorus, so simple but really nice.

    General CommentOh no, I feel like this song's greatness is being underestimated. The slick electronic drumming combined with the forceful acoustic drumming is just a beautiful combination. The beginning guitar part is just really clean which contributes to the electronic feel I think, whereas the undistorted guitar part as well as the background vocals give it a sense of distance. All this and the repetitiveness make it so easy just to sink in to; it may be my favorite song on the album.

    Speaking of background vocals, I would also like to know what is being sung at 1:18l
