"Sort Of" as written by and Ingrid Michaelson....
Baby you've got the sort of hands to rip me apart
And baby you've got the sort of face to start this old heart
But your eyes are warning me this early morning
That my love's too big for you, my love

Baby you've got the sort of laugh that waters me
And makes me grow tall and strong and proud and flattens me
I find you stunning, but you are running me down
My love's too big for you, my love
My love's too big for you, my love

And if I was stronger then I would tell you no
And if I was stronger then I will leave this show
And if I was stronger then I would up and go
But here I am and here we go again

Baby you've got the sort of eyes that tell me tales
That your sort of mouth just will not say, the truth impales
That you don't need me, but you won't leave me
My love's too big for you, my love
My love's too big for you, my love

And if I was stronger then I would tell you no
And if I was stronger then I will leave this show
And if I was stronger then I would up and go
But here I am and here we go again

Tell me what to do to take away the you?
Take away the you
Take away the you
Take away the you
Take away the you
Take away the you

And if I was stronger then I would tell you no. (take away the you)
And if I was stronger then I will leave this show (take away the you)
And if I was stronger then I would up and go
But here I am and here we go again

    General Commentobviously this girl deserves better than this boy is giving her.
    but she doesn't have the willpower to end it with him.
    and being with him is sort of draining, but
    she'll never leave.

    General CommentI can realte to this song, it reminds me of my latest relationship, I was so much in love with that guy .. but he wasn't ready for this kind of feelings... he was scared of me being so much into him, but i couldn't not fall for him. I could barely recognize myself when we were together, I knew that I had to walk away from him because I deserved better, but I couldn't .. I knew I was weak staying around him, but I couldn't leave him, till he did break up wih me ..

    I love how talented Ingrid is ..she writes words that translate some exact specific feelings

    General CommentI absolutely love this song and Ingrid Michaelson period! I feel like this song is one of her best although it doesn't seem to be as popular. It's about a girl who is in love with somebody that is wrong for them and hurts them, but she loves hime anyway. She knows he's not worth it, but she can't end the relationship. Beautiful song!
