this is how it goes lyrics – missy higgins

suddenly i can’t stay in this room.
you’ll never sway, and i have nothing left that i can think of to say.
what do you want me to think of my thought?
bear it in mind, if i cannot believe in me who will i then be?

and so i’ll run but not too far, incase you chase me, oh…
but this is how it goes, baby.
i’ll get angry at your words and i’ll go home
and you won’t call after me ‘cos i’ll be back before you know, you know…

so give me a tooth full of that smile,
and know-it-all eyes you show me
just to prove that you don’t need to lose it.
you tell me i’m your fortress of desire
but is it a crime for me to say my own view
and want then not to fear you?

and so i’ll run but not too far, incase you chase me…
but this is how it goes, baby,
i’ll get angry at your words and i’ll go home
then you won’t call after me ‘cos i’ll be back before you know,
you know, yeah i’ll be back before you know…

la di da di da………..
and so i’ll run but not too far…

‘cos this is how it goes, baby,
i’ll get angry at your words and
i’ll go home, then you won’t call after me,
‘cos i’ll be back before you know, you know…

yeah, i’ll be back before you know…
and so i’ll run but not too far…
