"By the Way" as written by and Ian Thornley....
One two three four
So you would be my one bad thing
Never when you tried
I let the fire burn out again
And then inside

So let my tears be realized
Before my eyes are turned
And every lie I've tried before
Won't work no more I've learned

Drowning or bathing
I've found out
What you meant
By the way

Knowledge unexpectedly
That you and me could be
Quiet the voices in my head
Warm my bed tonight
So you could be my one again
Never when you tried

Drowning or bathing
I've found out
What you meant
By the way

    General Commentthis is an after the fact song about someone he was in love with, they had a bad falling out and they had a chance to be together again. They didn't speak openly enough on what they meant to say and he's kicking himself in the butt about it.

    He wants her to acknoweledge how he is feeling, so that there may eventually be a resolve, instead of ignoring the real issues that caused the relationship to fade, or "The fire to burn out again"
