the way i tend to be lyrics – frank turner

some mornings i pray for evening,
for the day to be done.
some summer days i hide away
and pray for rain to come.
it turns out h*ll will not be found
within the fires below,
but in making do and muddling through
when you’ve nowhere else to go.
but then i remember you,
and the way you shine like truth in all you do.
and if you remembered me,
you could save me from the way i tend to be.
some days i wake up dazed my dear,
and i don’t know where i am.
i’ve been running now so long i’m scared
i’ve forgotten how to stand.
i stand alone in airport bars
and gather thoughts to think:
that if all i had was one long road
it could drive a man to drink.
because i’ve said i love you so many times that the words kinda die in my
mouth.
and i meant it each time with each beautiful woman but somehow it never
works out.
you stood apart in my calloused heart, and you taught me and here’s what i
learned:
that love is about the changes you make and not just three small words.
and then i catch myself
catching your scent on someone else
in a crowded sp*ce
and it takes me somewhere i cannot quite place.
