Macy Gray - The Way Lyrics




Hey baby
I called to say I gave up that narcotic
But ever since I quit, I ain't got much to say
And I found out that loving a man is overrated
Cause she's been nicer to me than you've been all day

I think of all I lost and all I gave away
And I bang my head and tears fall down my face
I'd like to make it up to all of you that I disappointed
But forgive me love, if I don't show up, I'm looking for the way

To the sky, to the rainbows
Baby, to them pearly gates (the way)
To the mountain top, to my super human state (the way)
And when I get there, will you be there? (the way)
Oh baby, will you be there? Uh-huh! (the way)

I think of all the mistakes that I made
The times I went, when I wish I had stayed
But just like Frank I can truly say
That "I did it my way", did it my way (the way)

I want it, I want it (the way)
I want it (ooh, ooh), I want it
All the people here, they look so happy and successful
Maybe I could be that way if only I knew (the way)

Gonna reside in my dreams, that's where I make it
Where the memory of me is never faded
And I wake up in a nightmare 'cause I
I still ain't satisfied, hey, the way

To the sky, take me to them pearly gates (to them pearly)
To the mountain top, to my super human state (superhuman)
To the rainbows, baby, to the love we make
Hey, yeah! They love! (the way)

To my one day, to my someday, yeah, yeah, yeah (the way)
Yeah, to the big ole' smile, to the big smile on my face (the way)
All the people here, they look so happy and successful (so happy and successful)
Maybe I could be that way if only I knew (I have) (the way)

Eh, ey, baby to the love we make
And will you be there? When I get there, by my side, baby?
Baby take my hand, yeah, yeah (oh)
And show me the way (the way)

I want it, I want it (the way)
I want it, I want it (take my hand and show me) (the way)
All the people here, they look so happy and successful
Maybe I could be that way if only I knew
All the people here, they look so happy and successful
Maybe I could be that way if only I knew
All the people here, they look so happy and successful

    Hey baby
    I called to say I gave up that narcotic
    But ever since I quit, I ain't got much to say
    And I found out that loving a man is overrated
    Cause she's been nicer to me than you've been all day

    I think of all I lost and all I gave away
    And I bang my head and tears down my face.
    I'd like to make it up to all of you that I disappointed
    But forgive me love, if I don't show up, I'm looking for

    THE WAY

    To the sky
    To the rainbows, Baby to them pearly gates (THE WAY)

    To the mountaintops and to my super human state (THE WAY)
    And when I get there
    Will you be there (THE WAY)
    Oh baby, will you be there?
    Uh-huh! (THE WAY)

    I think of all the mistakes that I made
    The times I wept, when I wished I had stayed
    But just like Frank ~Sinatra~ I can truly say
    That "I did my way," did it my way (THE WAY)

    I want it, I want it (THE WAY)
    I want it, (ooh) I want it

    And all the people here, they look
    So happy and successful,
    Maybe I could be that way if only I knew (THE WAY)

    Gonna reside in my dreams, that's where I'll make it
    Where the memory of me is never faded
    And I wake up in a nightmare cause I,
    I still ain't satisfied, Hey

    THE WAY

    To the sky
    Tell me to them pearly gates (to them pearly)

    To the mountaintops and to my super human state (superhuman)
    To the rainbows, Baby to the love, we make
    Hey, yeah! Ain't love (THE WAY)

    [I want it] To my one day, [I want it] to my someday, yeah yeah (THE WAY)
    Yeah, [I want it] To the big ole' smile, [I want it] to the big smile on my face (THE WAY)
    And all the people here, they look
    So happy and successful, (So happy and successful)
    (Yeah maybe after that I) Maybe I could be that way if only (I have) I knew (THE WAY)

    Eh, eha, baby to the love we make
    And will you be there,? Will I get there, by my side, baby?
    Baby take my hand, yeah, yeah (Oh)
    And show me your way (THE WAY)

    I want it, I want it (THE WAY)
    I want it, I want it [Take my hand and show me] (THE WAY)

    And

    all the people here, they look
    So happy and successful,
    Maybe I could be that way if only I knew (2x)

    And all the people here, they look
    So happy and successful

    Alonso Solórzano

    +JNguyen At 1:08 it's "and to my super human STATE" instead of "space" or "speed"
    which is what I've seen people write. Listen carefully, and watch her
    live acoustic version from The Tavis Smiley Show, she clearly says
    "state" there.

    And at 2:00 it looks it's "Gonna reside in my dreams, that's where I make it", first I thought it was "Or at least there in my dreams, that's where I make it" but after listening carefully to the live version and this, it looks like it is "Gonna reside in my dreams,", in the Tavis Smiley Show she clearly says "Gonna" and then it perfectly sounds like she is saying "reside" and then in the album version it perfectly fits.

    Alonso Solórzano

    +JNguyen Yup, she says "Gonna reside in my dreams, that's where I make it" at 2:00, just saw her One On One live performance of this song, she says it fast there but it is clearly that what she is saying! :D

    JNguyen

    +Alonso Solórzano Yeah, I was going off the music video, so I couldn't hear some words over the music. Thanks for the edits!

    Joshua McCool

    Rude little bitch.

    Danielle Rameau
