"As You Are" as written by and Francis Healy....
Everyday I wake up alone
I'm not like the other boys
And ever since I was young
I had no choice

But it's OK to lead me on
I admit it's not much fun
To be led on by such a one
As you are
As you are
As you are

And ever since I woke up I felt the net
Was lifting me out of the sea
And even when I'm sinking I feel the need

But it's OK to lead me on
I admit it's not much fun
To be led on by such a one
As you are
As you are
As you are

And ever since a long time
I felt the rain
And there was no danger
And no more strangers
As you are

    General Commenti think this song is about unrequited love. when u love some1 who you feel is superior then you but it doesnt matter even if they play with your emotions coz you still love them even though you dont like it. its basically about emotions and how people can toy with them even if you care about them. well thats my opinion anyway. i think this song is really kewl and it also shows fran healys great ability of writings songs that actually have a meaning not like some pop chart stuff!!

    General CommentI'm with *Purple Glitter* I think this song is about being in love with someone you see as being superior to you and the person being too good for you.

    General Commenti agree with the unrequited love. this girl he's in love with keeps 'leading' him on, just playing around with his emotions. he wakes up alone because he has his mind focused on this one girl he doesn't want to fool around with other girls.
    in the end he becomes used to the 'rain' that is feeling shitty, he felt no more 'danger' where 'there were no strangers' because he's lived through it.

    when he says he's sinking he feels the needs i think he means that when he's severely depressed he can't help but still love this girl who's toying with his emotion.

    And ever since I woke up I felt the net
    Was lifting me out of the sea

    i don't understand what he wakes up from
