"Either Way" as written by and Philip David/watkin Etheridge....
Yeah I feel better today, I think that shit was just a phase,
My whole outlook's changed, I've even stopped feelin' strange.
I can understand why you was mad now,
Why should you be the one who has to loose out, just 'cause I'm on one?
I said "I'm always gonna have shit going on!"

I feel so much better today, chase the bad things away.

I was glad I turned the corner man, 'cause I was sick of feelin' rough
I was getting paranoid about the silliest of stuff.
I was at me wit?s end pulling my hair out, I'd just about had enough.
And all I needed was just a hug and that little bit of love.

I feel so much better today, chase the bad things away.

And I really do feel so much better, I really do feel so much better.
And I've gotta find my phone to tell yer,
Maybe even write you a love letter.
Either way I've gotta tell ya, either way I've gotta tell ya,

I feel so much better today, I've chased the bad things away.

And yeah I really do feel better and it almost don?t feel right,
So I'm gonna store this thought away for a bit,
And I'm not saying it ain't gonna be hard at times,
'Cause it's always your favourite top you bin,
But think man it could have been your skin.
And I think we might just be OK, but what does it matter either way,
'Cause she's the one that's always there.
Yeah she's the one that always cares.
Yeah she's the one that always there.
'cause your the one that always cares.
I love ya.
I've gotta find my phone to tell 'er
Ah, maybe even write you a love letter.
Ah, either way I've gotta tell ya, either way I've gotta tell ya,
Ah either way I've gotta tell ya, either way I've gotta tell ya,
Either way either way either way (lots of either ways)

    General Commentthis is a great song, sounds like early R.E.M with some New Order! This is about a guy who is getting over his addiction and realising that the love his girlF is showing him has got him over it and he wants to thank her

    General CommentI think it's about when you'ce had a really crap day and you snap at the person you love. It seems like they've had a big argument and this song is an apology.

    General Commentthis song makes me feel so much better.
    after seeing my girlfriend after abit of a rough patch, i dropped her at the station and listend to this track all the way home and understood its meaning.

    i think this song is about a fallout between a couple, and they have just made it up to oneanother; when u fall out with the one u love, u cannot stop feeling strange like everything is going wrong. after the fight u realise its all changed, everything is fine again and u start to apreciate what u have.

    he is compelled to tell her how he is feeling.

    General Commenti feel its about how his girl has helped him get over his demons and then realises that his misses is truly the one that has helped him through his rough times... and.. either way he's got to tell her.. such a sweet song. reminds me of the one i've got in my heart. xx

    theres a remix to this with The Streets & The Twang - Either Way (Prof. Green Remix) .. its a good tune!!

    General Commentthis song is something i could relate too. My Girlfriend currently suffers from bi-polar disorder (deep moments of depression).

    And the whole of this song sounds to me that maybe he did suffer from depression, and it's going through the stages he went through, and that his girlfriend or whoever manage to get there and stay through with him. In the first verse it sounds like he was on drugs too, maybe to help his depression?
    i'm not sure, they're just suggestions.

    General CommentIts, 'and its always my favourite top I blim, but think man it could have been my skin'

    A blim is when a bit of ash falls off a splif and burns a hole in your clothes or just on your skin.

    General CommentYeah, Ive always really related to this song too, I suffer from depression and when youre in a relationship it put a lot of pressure on it. the way you act isnt pleasant and us understanding as my boyfriend is it can be difficult to cope with sometimes. I think thats what he saying at the start, that he understands its hard for her having to deal with his mood. and at the end when he says hes happy to feel better and hes much more optomistic but hes warey that hes still going to have bad days.

    Thats the meaning I've always took anyway, and I cant wait til I feel like hes feeling so I can thank the people that have helped me. If that is the meaning and hes written it based on his own experiences then I think its a really lovely way to thank someone.

    General CommentFor me, parts of this song are to do with DRUGS screwing you up...

    "Yeah I feel better today, I think that shit was just a phase,
    My whole outlook's changed, I've even stopped feelin' strange"

    I think this is him finally getting over the negative effects of the drugs... but he's still a bit uncertain whether or not these problems will creep back up on him as he says, "I THINK that shit was just a phase".

    He also says that he was "getting paraniod about the silliest of things" and "feeling rough", which are negative effects of using drugs too much, especially marijuana.

    It's is about RELATIONSHIPS too...

    Sometimes facing all of these drug related problems by yourself feels incredibly overwhelming, and it's really nice to know that you've got someone to talk to about these problems...

    "I was at me wit�s end pulling my hair out, I'd just about had enough.
    And all I needed was a hug and that little bit of love"

    The guy in the song is over the moon that he's finally done with these problems now, and he wants to do nothing more than to tell the girl that was by his side for the whole thing...

    "And I'VE GOTTA find my phone to TELL YER,
    maybe even write you a love letter.
    Eitherway I'VE GOTTA TELL YA, eitherway I'VE GOTTA TELL YA"

    "she's the one that's always there.
    Yeah she's the one that always cares."

    ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL SONG x
