the way we are lyrics – lene marlin

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.
