"Something In The Way She Moves" as written by and James Taylor....
There's something in the way she moves
Or looks my way, or calls my name
That seems to leave this troubled world behind
If I'm feeling down and blue
Or troubled by some foolish game
She always seems to make me change my mind

And I feel fine anytime she's around me now
She's around me now
Almost all the time
And if I'm well you can tell she's been with me now
She's been with me now quite a long, long time
And I feel fine

Every now and then the things I lean on lose their meaning
And I find myself careening
In places where I should not let me go
She has the power to go where no one else can find me
Yes and silently remind me
The happiness and the good times that I know, but as I had got to know them

It isn't what she's got to say
But how she thinks and where she's been
To me, the words are nice, the way they sound
I like to hear them best that way
It doesn't much matter what they mean
What she says them mostly just to calm me down

And I feel fine anytime she's around me now
She's around me now
Almost all the time
If I'm well you can tell she's been with me now
She's been with me now quite a long, long time
Yes and I feel fine

    General CommentHow has no one commented on this song? It is decidedly my famous James Taylor song and one of the most compelling love songs I know of. It is about what a emotional mess he is--lower than low--and then when he's with her, it's all gone, and that's all he needs.

    That said, the "Every now and then" part goes before the "It isn't what she's got to say" part...and then the chorus repeats.

    General CommentI don't mean to sound like a broken record, but this song reminds me of a love song to heroin.

    It's all in there guys. But perhaps it just is a simple love song. When I listen to it, though... heroin.

    General CommentThis song is obviously about heroin...If you do a little research on JT, you will find that he was addicted to heroin for many years.... "I feel fine anytime she's around me... it doesn't matter what she says..." It is all there, think about i
