As I walk on down,
I feel like a clown,
In the circus of my own.
Oh my cover explored,
Feel like I got a heart made of tin,
I thought of you this morning.

While I’m sleeping to a state,
I saw you wake up,
When I start the fire,
I thought I can’t get your smoke out of my eyes.
Guess I lose, guess you win, yeah.
I thought of you this morning.

When I think about all the other ways I could have played,
All the other simple moves I could have made,
All the other calls that I could have dealt,
All the books I didn't read upon my shelf,
All of the other ways I could have sung my songs,
Realized that none of it went wrong,
And it was all played.
How could it be any other way (x2)

None of it change the law from “free to roll”
Everywhere I go, I feel like I'm home,
Nothing hides, everything is shown.
She's always with me, I'm never alone,
Guess you lose, guess I win.
I thought of you this morning,
When I think about all the other ways I could have played,
All the other simple moves I could have made,
All the other calls that I could have dealt,
All the books I didn't read upon my shelf,
All the other ways that could have sung my songs,
Realized that none of it went wrong,
And it was all played.
How could it be any other way?

How could it be any other way?
It was all played.
How could it be any other way?
It was all played.
How could it be any other way?
(How could it be any other, repeat until end)
It was all played.
How could it be any other way?
It was all played.
How could it be any other way?

    General CommentWow, half of these lyrics are horribly wrong. Go to Trevor's Myspace page and look at the actual lyrics, which he posted in a blog post back in May.

    General Commentyah the lyrics on this page are aweful...yet if you know the song and understand the meaning, these lyrics won't effect your view too much. This song is about a relationship that could never be..whether its because hes with someone else or visa versa, it was hopeless from the start. All of the other ways he could have approached this person/situation would have ended in the same conclusion anyway. No ones wins, no one loses..as he conveys when he keeps switching who wins and loses in this situation. How could it be any other way? The philisophy he is walking away with from this situation is that it is what it is. It will all be okay, because it is what its supposed to me. There is no other way.
