"No Other Way" as written by and Jack Hody Johnson....
When your mind is a mess so is mine I can't sleep
'Cause it hurts when I think my thoughts aren't at peace
With the plans that we make, chances we take
They're not yours they're not mine

There's waves I can't break
All the words that we say ain't the words that we mean
Words can fall short can't see the unseen
'Cause the world is awake for somebody's sake

Now please close your eyes woman please get some sleep

And know that if I knew all of the answers
I would not hold them from you
Know all of the things that I know
'Cause we've told each other
There is no other way

Too much silence can be misleading
You're drifting I can hear it in the way that you're breathing
We don't really need to find reason 'cause obviously know that it came
But it's leaving, it's leaving

Leaving like a day that's done a part of a season
Resolve is just a concept that's just dead as the leaves
But at least we could sleep it's all that we need
When we wake we would find our minds would be free to go to sleep

And know that if I knew all of the answers
I would not hold them from you
Know all of the things that I know
'Cause we've told each other
There is no other way

    General CommentTo me, this song is about insomnia. He's worried too much about the things that he's said, or the things that have been said by another person. It's not just himself that he's worrying about, and he's not the only one losing sleep. He really wants to stop worrying.
    "when your mind is a mess
    so is mine
    i can't sleep
    cause it hurts when i think
    my thoughts aren't at peace
    with the plans that we make
    chances we take
    they're not yours and not mine
    there's waves that can break
    all the words that we said
    and the words that we mean
    words can fall short
    can't see the unseen"
