"Something In The Way You Are" as written by Keith Ciancia, Mike Elizondo and Kimbra Johnson....
Something got me out of my
Slumber in the broken night
Watching you across the room
Shadowed by the placid moon
And I can feel it in my bones
Something that nobody knows
How it really feels inside
To let go of all my pride

I sense it, I feel it
I sense it, I feel it

It's something in the way you lie
It's something so hard to find
It's something in the way you slept
Something always left me wanting
It's something in the way you smile
You make a silly joke and it's fine
Something in the way you are
Something in the way you are

I'm wondering about your childhood
Wonder if you were misunderstood
I'm watching you inside your head
I wonder if you know how long I can
And I can feel it in my bones
I love all of the sticks and stones
And every little word you say
You're breaking me in the best way

It's something in the way you lie
It's something so hard to find
It's something in the way you slept
Something always left me wanting
It's something in the way you smile
You make a silly joke and it's fine
Something in the way you are
Something in the way you are

It's something when you look so tough
It's something I can't get enough
It's something when you make that sound
It's something when you break it down
It's something when you raise your voice
You know that I don't have a choice
It's something in the way you are
Something in the way you are

You're my (favorite) pastime
And then you're just passing by
Stay a little while
It's only you and I
You're my (favorite) pastime
Even when you're just passing by
Stay a little while
It's only you and I

It's something in the way you lie
It's something so hard to find
It's something in the way you slept
Something always left me wanting
It's something in the way you smile
You make a silly joke and it's fine
Something in the way you are
Something in the way you are

It's something when you look so tough
It's something I can't get enough
It's something when you make that sound
It's something when you break it down
It's something when you raise your voice
You know that I don't have a choice
It's something in the way you are
Something in the way you are

    General CommentJust a note - the words in the [ ]'s are words in the official lyric book but not really heard in the song. ( )'s are words in the song but not in the official lyric book (EXCEPT "That Door" and "More" in the chorus)

    General CommentWell, seems lyricfind has swooped in and murked up these lyrics as well. Do they listen by ear and just give it a go? I see a lot of the errors I thought when I did that. But besides the songbook, she has her (correct) lyrics posted on her website! :/
