Sertab – Every Way That I Can Lyrics

I feel you moving on a different course
Making a way for a distant cause
You say you love me and you roll your eyes
Turn to stare at the empty skies
I thought it was over and we passed all that
All we’ve done is to pass back to frame number one
Come on, now, now
I wanna show you all again what it would be like
If you just let go and let me love you
Every way that I can
I’ll try to make you love me again
Every way that I can
I’ll give you all my love and then
Every way that I can
I’ll cry, I’ll die
Make you mine again
Hold me closer, oh, so good
You make me feel just like I should
I know what you’re thinking: uhuh good
Now the rest of the world is overruled
Tell me what you see in other girls all around
Come on closer and tell me what you don’t find here
Come on, now, now
I wanna be the everything you’ve been missing out
Just let go and let me love you
Every way that I can
I’ll try to make you love me again
Every way that I can
I’ll give you all my love and then
Every way that I can
I’ll cry, I’ll die
Make you mine again
I’m in love with you
I’ll do all you want me to
You make me wanna huhuh
Make me wanna huhuhuh
I’m in love with you
I’ll do all you want me to
You make me wanna huhuh
Make me wanna huhuhuh
Nothing in the world that will stop me, no sir
Nothing in the world that will stop me, no sir
No, no, no, no, no
Every way that I can
I’ll try to make you love me again
Every way that I can
I’ll give you all my love and then
Every way that I can
I’ll give you all my love and then
Every way that I can
I’ll cry, I’ll die
Make you mine again
