James - So Many Ways Lyrics

There are so many traps been laid
How can you avoid one
Put your foot down in a moonlit glade
Snap, your ankle's broken

I don't know how decisions get made
Which are the turns to take
It doesn't seem to matter what plans are laid
You can't tell when the wave will break

So many ways
There are so many colourful rays
How are you going to choose one
Bright lights look all right from here
But seduction has to be wrong


So many ways
I don't know which path you're taking,
If it's bent or straight
All I know is I've found something that will take me home again
So many ways
If you keep your wits about you,
Search with an open heart
You'll be sure to find your answers, penetrate the scream in the cynics
So many ways
Lost and if you are looking for foot's path
Floating free in space
There are all these lights coming out the dark
Do they lead to the same place

So many ways

  8. Christopher Long

    Great sound for ever......

  9. Octavio Bobadilla

    This videoclip is so pathetic and ridiculous. The song was good.


    The video is a perfect portrait of James in 1986. And the song is phenomenal.

    hello cats

    Late james misses some of early james charm too political

    i am a megga fan in my way,,,,totaly into metal,,,,and the rest ,but no matter what i listen to from James ,, i cant fault it ,,,,even when i really feel shit ,,,,Tim and or he musicians cheer me up big time ,, big thanks to my brother Jamie Strathearn for introducing me to them many moons ago ( 28+ yrs ago)

  11. Nuno Fernandes

    Also love this one.
    Thanks :)

  12. John Peel

    Fantastic song 

  13. Darren N

    Never knew they made a video. To be honest, I prefer the song without the images. The lyrics always meant to much but the video doesn't reflect that at all. Shame really. James could have been so much more and their music would have been that much more relevant. Amazing song though, thanks for sharing

  14. Karina Tekirian

    I haven't seen this before! Many thanks! 5 days ago they played in Buenos Aires and I had the pleasure of being there.

  15. madferit1993
