"Many Ways" as written by and Jack Steadman....
One spur in the fire, burning
Now we're clearing the embers away
There are many ways this way
So I tell you like you're meant to
And you're quick to guess my choice
Was it my trembling hand or my voice?

She said you're stirring
Tossing, turning
Just like you were in the night
I am sure your choice is right

I've always been a coward
Been a coward to this day
There are many ways this way
And your fortune taken from you
By men that always say
There are many ways this way

    General CommentI love this song... am I really the first to comment? I guess it's just about someone faced with a really big choice, like life ot death, and the thought of all the consequences that could occur are frightening him; the trembling hands. in the last lines, he doesn't feel wise yet and has some illusion that he can keep on doing what he's been doing: men saying there are many ways if he makes this choice seem like liars...

    My InterpretationI think this is about him making a decision to break up with a girl. He does not want to hurt her like other men, who take away her "fortune"- her happiness. The start of the song is him explaining the disastrous relationship, as it "burned' and now someone has to clear the "embers" away- which might symbolise the devastation left over by the "fire" which might denote a fight or a big blow up between the two

    In the next stanza we get the impression that he is talking with the girl about how the situation needs to be resolved, and she knows why he has come to her, and is "quick to guess his(my) choice". They both realise the relationship is unhealthy, as she says "I am sure your choice is right" to leave her, but he still feels quite guilty about it and mentions how he has "always been a coward" about breaking up a relationship- possibly because of the hurt he has gone through with them, and times when he has been dumped.

    Truly beautiful lyrics, hats off to Jack Steadman <3
