The Way We Are

by The Flatlanders

The Flatlanders are a country band with considerable country rock influence from Lubbock, Texas founded by singers/songwriters/guitarists Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Joe Ely, and Butch Hancock.




Every night you and I catch a wandering eye
We stand out like trees in cotton rows
It ain't a look, it ain't a style we might throw
Down after a while
It's the way we are and that's the way it goes

[Chorus]
The way we are, the way we are
You might think we fell right off the same bright star, the way we are
Never had a dream so good to me so far
It don't leave nothing much to say, the way we are

I'd lost my mind riding on the 99
When you found me singing sad and low
And at the end of the track, you took my hand
And led me back
To the happy song I'd left so long ago

[Chorus]

It might be, I might say, we weren't born to be this way
There's a million ways they say and this I see
But it occurred to me last night, when I saw you standing in the moonlight
If I die this way that'll be okay with me

The way we are, the way we are
You might think we fell right off the same bright star, the way we are
Never had a dream so good to me so far
I never thought I would meet someone who
Would share a fate like ours
It don't leave nothing much to say the way we are
