It must be something in the way you move
It must be something in the way you look
I'm not sure just yet

Must be something in the way you dream
You just go home and the thirteen days
In between you and I

This is me before I come undone
This is me before I fall apart
I've been tired for days and days
I've been tired for days and days

It must be something in the way you move
Innocent like you gave in
Just like you always would

It must be something in the way they say
And the magic that you bring in between all you imply

This is me before I come undone
This is me before I fall apart
I've been tired for days and days
I've been tired for days and days

It could have been a month or
It could have been a year
But I, I gave up long before
Long before you cared
Her art inspired me to
To do my best and
To paint my music like
Like I saw it best
And she says I grew up well
Well, well I grew up strong
Because no one's got my back
No one's going to write me my songs

It could have been a month or
It could have been a year
But I, I gave up long before
Because I've been tired for days and days
I've been tired for days and days and days
I've been tired for days and days and days
I've been tired for days and days and days
I've been tired for days and days and days

It could have been a month or
It could have been a year
But I, I gave up long before
Long before you cared
Her art inspired me to
To do my best and
To paint my music like
Like I saw it best
And she says I grew up well
Well, well I grew up strong
Because no one's got my back
No one's going to write me my songs

It could have been a month or
It could have been a year
But I, I gave up long before
Because I've been tired for days and days
I've been tired for days and days and days
I've been tired for days and days and days
I've been tired for days and days and days
I've been tired for days and days and days

    Whoaa.
    But I think after that, she's talking about her mom, "I grew up well".

    General CommentI don't think she says/sings, "It must be something in the way you look" - I think she drops off at the end and states, "must be something in the way youuuu.. I'm not sure just yet". That's how I hear it and that's what I sing when I cover it.

    I really love this song. I've only heard one live version and it sounds like it was recorded at a radio station, recently after Sara wrote it.

    I think it's probably about a girlfriend or love interest.
