put it that way

people have been trying to tell me
for such a long long time
all the things I need to fix
in my heart and in my head

they mean well, or maybe they don’t
it doesn’t seem to matter
what they’re saying slips away
like a list I’ve never read

But when you hold me,
put your arms around me
when you smile
and look me in the eye

when you put it that way, it’s easy to see
when you put it that way, you know you’re gettin to me
when you tell me with that look
when you tell me with those eyes
when you put it that way, I realize
it’s true
you’re lovin me, yeah, I’m lovin you

it might be prestidigitation
a sleight of hand trick
I keep trying to pull off here
to keep it all in control

but I can never really fool you
cos you see right through it
know where the smoke is coming from,
the mirrors on the wall

But when you hold me,
put your arms around me
when you smile
and look me in the eye

when you put it that way, it’s easy to see
when you put it that way, you know you’re gettin to me
when you tell me with that look
when you tell me with those eyes
when you put it that way, I realize
it’s true
you’re lovin me, yeah, I’m lovin you

take me the way I’m made
by Someone who really knew
watch me as I am growin up
or just leave me behind

it’s not up to me or up to you
to set the end point
going to stop edging God out
peek inside and see what we find
But when you hold me,
put your arms around me
when you smile
and look me in the eye

when you put it that way, it’s easy to see
when you put it that way, you know you’re gettin to me
when you tell me with that look
when you tell me with those eyes
when you put it that way, I realize
it’s true
you’re lovin me, yeah, I’m lovin you
