Ingrid Michaelson - Sort Of Lyrics

Baby you've got the sort of hands to rip me apart
And baby you've got the sort of face to start this old heart
But your eyes are warning me this early morning
That my love's too big for you my love

Baby you've got the sort of laugh that waters me
And makes me grow tall and strong and proud and flattens me
I find you stunning, but you are running me down
My love's too big for you my love
My love's too big for you my love

And if I was stronger then I would tell you no
And if I was stronger then I will leave this show
And if I was stronger then I would up and go
But here I am and here we go again

Baby you've got the sort of eyes that tell me tales
That your sort of mouth just will not say, the truth impales
That you don't need me, but you won't leave me
My love's too big for you my love
My love's too big for you my love

And if I was stronger then I would tell you no
And if I was stronger then I will leave this show
And if I was stronger then I would up and go
But here I am and here we go again

Tell me what to do to take away the you?

And if I was stronger then I would tell you no.
And if I was stronger then I will leave this show
And if I was stronger then I would up and go
But here I am and here we go again

  30. fenab 94

    Am i wrong to say this song sounds like us by reg.spector?

    Manuel Illescas

    The way the songs are played are very similar ;) I see what you are saying

    fenab 94

    Christopher Ness

    That's what I thought. Thanks- I couldn't think of the artist.

  31. Kayla Washington

    Why don't people listen to her? She is literally perfection.

  32. Yurrah Al-Hadi

    I was watching The Vow and thinking about breaking up with my boyfriend of three years, then this song popped into my head. "But here I am and here we go again" This line explains how I've been feeling for almost three years. So many times I've wanted to break up with him and have tried, but I can't or couldn't. I promised myself to never regret our relationship and to love him as much as I could. He came into my life when I least expected it. I just feel like I am in this by myself, I am tired of wanting and needing more from him. I am okay with not having a "serious" relationship with him, the problem is that he keeps implying he's going to give me more. I remember when I told him yes, I couldn't stop smiling. My best and worst moments are when I am away from him. I don't even know what to say to him any more. Okay, this comment is getting longer then what I wanted. This song just sums up how I feel.

    Liz Stack

    Other people have their limits.  We only/always have ourselves. The rest is gravy.

    Karime Coletta

    i hope you did what was best for you and broke up with him. life is about so much more than just one person, even if they have been with you for a very long time. sometimes, it's about leaping, even if you don't know where you're going to land.


    I hope you learned to heal, good luck.


    i hope you did break up with him. if things do not feel right and you feel “your love is too big for him”, then you def deserve to be in a relationship that feels right with someone who provides you with enough support and love, which you well deserve. don’t waste anymore time with someone who always leaves you hanging, giving you false hopes that someday maybe he will settle down. life is too short!

  33. Elizabeth Louise

    why is she not famous like rihanna and all..


    i have a friend who is very wealthy and prominent in the Scientific community, recognized by the Pentagon and their is nothing online about them. Sometimes incredible people are not concerned about public fame so its ok not to be famous!

    Maggie T

    Elizabeth Louise are you still alive

  34. Loren Larsen

    This song reminds me of my EX, that i loved very much, as she tied me up and sodomized me. We would cry to this song together. Pinch my nipples please.


    What a woman. Such a shame that you lost her


    Uh. I think this post comes under the general heading of "too much information".

  35. Macayla Pierce

    Wow I love this song I cried

  36. Jason Janacek

    What a beautiful song. And the The song was referred to me by a close friend. And I have to say I had never even heard of this woman before. I'm definitely impressed especially if she is the song writer. Just a great piece of music.

    Embers Official

    Agreed x1000000

    A. Lu

    She is! Ingrid Michaelson's ahmahzahng!

  37. KettiexD

    wtf I'm pissed. HOW DOES THIS NOT HAVE 8937862365126542367431 VIEWS?! This song damn near made me cry and I never cry because of songs. I've always liked Ingrid Michaelson, but wow... I could listen to this forever, it's so beautiful

    Courtney Val

    KettiexD right?! The end chokes me up every time. Such a beautiful song. I attempted a cover if you have any interest in checking it out! No worries if not-but I totally agree with your comment :)

    Dang Lambert

    Because people who get pissed aren't attractive??

    Khalid Elamin

    And here we go !!!

    Maggie T

    KettiexD are you still alive

  38. cristieraquel

    I know comments are unnecessary but this song is just perfect! I love it. I think i found it at the right moment too. I know that for most of you this song is about a couple in a relationship, but not necessarily its for just a couple. I think this song could mean so much more. I believe it could be about this girl who fights her feelings for this guy, because she knows a relationship with him wont ever happen or isn't worth it. I love it! Okay i'm done, sorry lol.

  39. Annie Spence

    this song man...

  40. dariusjjack

  44. Faith Brim


  45. Jasmine Jonathan Andrews

    She is beautiful........she makes me feel beautiful. She is so real...

  46. Mayumi Pimentel

    "Tell me what to do to take away the 'you'." just makes my heart palpitate eveytime i hear that line.

  47. nina0780

    I listened to this and silently cried while looking at my cat. I've had her for eight years, and I love her so much. Now I type this I realize just how odd this is. Love is love......

  48. Ollie Anne

    I absolutely love this song:)

  49. snapplebutt

    This song is amazing

  51. Claudia Amoah-Bimpong

    Cheers to you Ingrid Michaelson. :)

  52. Sleepy Cheshire

    Really? Piano before humility, that's the educational order these days?

  53. Sleepy Cheshire

    I'd think "you've got the sort of laugh that waters me" isn't exactly national anthem material, you know?

  54. Brooklynn Ross

    love this song it reall speaks 2 me and the meaning is so sweet and sad. :(..

  61. mrghantauke

  62. allyxasalyssa

    Than ks a lot, you killjoy.

  63. Aziz

    That comment is perfect.

  64. Deidre Mimbs

    That's not a good thing honey and I can say that because it's the same for me. Just means he means more to you than you do him , you are just filling a space for him.

  65. william Gamez

    This song is just too good and perfect

  66. CrystalRiot

  86. destroysilence


  87. destroysilence

    This is her best song EVER!!!!!!!

  88. Deblur

    This song is ATIV Smart PC Commertial song?

  89. rebekat

    Porcelain Fists is good. I don't tend to like the perkier ones, they're fun enough but she can be totally haunting as well and I'd take that any day. Glass is a work of genius.

  90. destroysilence

    All mentioned other than porcelain fists.

  91. destroysilence

    Heart wrenching.....

  92. destroysilence

    Shannon, all of those are my favorites!!!!!+ the Beatles.......So I find you quite agreeable!!!:)

  93. Amanda

    who sang this on american idol? i cant find it online anywhere!

  94. bruklin Carey

    this song is on the apple commercial :O

  95. Mazi

    :D Ingrid always pulls me in with her soulful lyrics, Regina has her haunting melodies, Sara has that mean message wrapped in an upbeat, catchy tune. You might want to listen to "Bright Lights and Cityscapes" by Sara Bareilles.
    And If you haven't already heard "Winter Song," you should definitely look into that :) It's a duet between Ingrid and Sara. It is a beautiful collaboration.
    Thanks for your time :D

  96. Generous Harvester

    This music is the type of music I wish and want to write... <3
    All of her music is so eloquently written, and it's entirely beautiful to listen to whatever time of the day.

  97. Jacqueline

    her best song
