the way you are lyrics – afters

until you came i was just the same
as everybody else
whoever saw the light and turned away

you love me now
you loved me then
and every now and again
you show me how it would be if i’d gone the other way

after all this time i’ve come to find my soul’s fragility
but you’ve rectified my frailty by your strength

-chorus-
it’s like the sun swallowed up by the earth
like atomics bombs in reverse
as if a gl*ss could contain the sea
that’s the way you are in me
that’s the way you are

now here i stand looking back
to the way things used to be
but i will never be alone again

cause you’re with me
and now i see
what it means to me
to be a part of such a mystery

after all this time i’ve come to find my soul’s fragility
but you’ve rectified my frailty by your strength

-chorus-
it’s like the sun swallowed up by the earth
like atomics bombs in reverse
as if a gl*ss could contain the sea
that’s the way you are in me
that’s the way you are

after all this time i’ve come to find my soul’s fragility
but you’ve rectified my frailty by your strength

-chorus-
it’s like the sun swallowed up by the earth
like atomics bombs in reverse
as if a gl*ss could contain the sea
that’s the way you are in me
that’s the way you are in me
that’s the way you are
that’s the way you are in me (that’s the way)
that’s the way you are in me (that’s the way)
that’s the way you are in me (that’s the way)
that’s the way you are in
