The Way That He Sings Lyrics

why's it so strange when they say that the world's movin upwards?
Why's it surreal when my hands feel they cant roll the dice?
Why's it so great just to wake every day, alive and by your side.
It's a mystery I guess, there's lots of things I cant find.
Its not the way that you look, but your move that catches my eye.
Why's it so soft when the cannons unload on the others?
Why're we so loud when we say it wont happen to us?
Why does my mind blow to bits every time they play that song?
It's just the way that he sings,
not the words that he says, or the band.
Im in love with this soul, it's a meaning that I understand.

This song, oddly enough, describes how I feel about My Morning Jacket on a superficial level, but it's more about something almost unreachable- a beauty on the edge of consciousness.

Everything up to the last three lines are just things. As the listener, relate to them, enjoy them, sing them, apply them whatever you like, 'cause they're leading up to the point of the song: "Not the words that he says, or the band. I'm in love with this soul, It's a meaning that I understand."

They take simple things and make them beautiful, putting them into words that I could use, but they do it better than I could, of course. This song shows it well.

No Butterroll, That's exactly what the songs about, the unexplainable draw to things, song, people, etc. It's that Je ne sei Qua quality that it's about, that aspect that can't be pinpointed. So why don't you take your sophmoric comments and shove 'em up your ass. Who the hell are you to dis someones comments when your not making even a remotely relevent comment? Bitch.

I want to be just like butterroll when I grow up.
