"Either Way (live)" as written by Michael Francis Flynn and Daniel Layus....
Let go my hands
that's the way things go
but I don't know
I just don't know
Make up some simple lies
And compromise how i live

Cause either way
I'll break your heart someday
And leaving you's the last thing on my mind
so when i go baby kiss me slow
so i don't forget to make my way back home
when it's cold

Sail away
on a wayward ship
Candy lips in my grips
Cheap perfume
oh it never lies
can't supply and it could advise

Cause either way
i'll break your heart someday
and leaving you's the last thing on my mind (uh huh) yeah
so when i go baby kiss me slow
so i don't forget to make my way back home
when it's cold

I'll miss you in the winter
your friends say i should listen
Can't you see i've loved you all along
if america dont like me
you can say i finally
i'm the cableman who only knocks on the door
should anyone, should anyone

Cause either way
break your heart someday
and leaving you's the last thing on my mind
so when i go baby kiss me slow
so i don't forget to make my way back home
when it's cold

oh when it's cold

    General Commenti saw them perform at summerfest in milwaukee...which by the way was AMAZING...and he said that he wrote this song when he was "quite intoxicated."

    the lyrics make more sense if you appreciate that dan was drunk when we wrote them...

    General CommentThis is a new song and I've never heard anywhere but in concert and on a demo live cd (i bought at teh concert) but Dan said it was about "the love of his life". It seems like he's not very happy with himself, maybe something he's done in their relationship or in a past one while he's been out on the road. He loves this girl and doesn't want to do anything to jepordize their realtionship "leaving you is the last thing on my mind" but he knows how he is and he is just fearing the worst... that he'll inevitably break her heart someday.

    General Commentthe correct lyrics are

    All I have about the way things go
    I don't know, I just don't know
    Make up some simple lies and compromise
    How I live

    Cause either way I'll break your heart someday
    But leaving you is the last thing on my mind
    So when I go baby kiss real slow
    So I don't forget my way back home
    When I go

    Sail away on a wayward ship
    With candy lips in my grip
    Cheap perfume, Oh it never lies
    And I can't supply any good alibis

    (Chorus)

    Well I miss you in the winter
    Your friends say I should listen
    Can't you see I've loved you all along
    Well if America don't like me
    You can say I finally
    Became a man who only likes the gun
    Shoot anyone, shoot anyone...

    (Chorus)
