"The Way She Moves" as written by Geoffrey Rockwell, Ryan ...
It's getting late your eyes are closed and mine are wide awake
(But still!)
I can never go on I can never go on like
(Just like!)
I'm begging just to see your eyes again
I can never go on (I can never go on)

Should I even care that she didn't say anything
Tried to do my best by giving her things
Like rings...
And roses...

Remember to reply when I hint the message
I try to smell my best with a bottle of acids
Get to the point, style and romance
And I could never go on I could never go on

[Chorus]
The way she moves away oh
I wanted her to stay awhile don't go home away oh
The way she moves away oh
I wanted her to stay awhile don't go home
Away oh whoa

Shes showing signs of motion as she wipes the sleep away
I can get through this I can get through this ride
You gotta give a little but it takes a lot to get over you
Cause it makes no sense to be permanent if I can't feel, right right right

[Chorus]

It's a terrible thing to know what you want
And know you can't have it at all
I all I wanted was to let you know how I...
It's a terrible thing
It's a terrible it's a terrible thing
Oh
A terrible a terrible thing

    General CommentThe correct lyric in the bridge is...

    "Tried to do my best
    Should have given her better things
    Like rings and roses"

    General Commenti have a couple more corrections, straight from the lyric booklet.

    "Remember to reply when I hint the message
    I try to smell my best with a bottle of acids"

    should be...

    "Never do reply when I hint the message
    I try to smell my best with a bottle of essence"

    General Comment"It's a terrible thing to know what you want
    And to know you can't have it at all"

    i find that so relatable, as would most people. that whole bridge is terribly catchy.

    General CommentI think it's like his crush is sleeping over or they're at a party or something, and he wants her to wake up but not go home... and he tries to impress her and regrets a lot of things
    but he knows it won't work, so he tries to get over her ?

    I wonder if the sleeping is a metaphor something
    and if the way she moves is about her sleeping or like dancing

    General Commentdefinitely one of my favorite FTSK songs!

    but the only part i saw that wasn't right was
    "'Cause it makes no sense to be permanent
    >If you're not feling it<, right, right, right"

    General CommentThe guy has had a crush on a girl for years. They hook up one night, but it doesn't mean anything to her but a one night stand. When she wakes up in the morning she just leaves.
