"The Way We Are" as written by and Lene Marlin Pedersen....
I watch you growing sometimes I see myself in you
It can be scary but kinda funny too
I hear you talking
A lot of similarities
Your choice of words
And all the fantasies

Just the way we are
I guess you've seen it now
A mirror of ourselves sure makes us weird
Falling down
From a mountain of frights
What's there to hold on to?

The way you makes all smile and the despair when you just
Won't go to sleep
You could have me walking a mile to make you smile still it's not
Really a weep
I know you fooled me
A million times
I just can't help it
Don't know why

Just the way we are
I guess you've seen it now
A mirror of ourselves sure makes us weird
Falling down from a mountain of frights
What's there to hold on to?

I know you hate it but they really have to do
What they do
You're crying out your wishes I understand
Yet they don't have a clue.

    General CommentI too love the acustic version!
    I think it's about watching someone in you family growin up, maybe a cousin, and you see how they are similar to you in many ways and know all the things they have to go through in life.
