Peter Bjorn And John - Stay This Way Lyrics



Oooooooh
Oooooooh

Things ain't workin' out like they're supposed to
But at least they're workin' out
If you ask yourself if anything is meaningful
You find that everything is, no doubt
Call it lack of inspiration, resignation, stupid, or mature
You can only do as much in little time
If you are up for sharing, I can split up mine
'Cause it makes me happy

Oooooooh

I've been up and down and out and in
And everything that's in between (Oooooh)
And in my ridicule I thought that I was something special
In spite of ordinary dreams
But you end up getting tired of doing psychoanalysis of yourself
You can only do as much in little time
If you are up for sharing, I can split up mine
'Cause it makes me happy

I don't wanna go back
I don't wanna move on (Why can't we stay this way?)
I don't wanna grow up
I don't wanna stay young

(Why can't we stay this way?)
I don't wanna go back
I don't wanna move on (Why can't we stay this way?)
I don't wanna grow up
I don't wanna stay young

I don't wanna know you
Not like I used to know people
I don't wanna change you
Not that I used to change people
I just wanna have you here

  1. Renato Fernandino

    this's real art man, brokes my heart everytime i listen

  2. jacob

    And in my ridicule, I thought that I was something special, in spite of ordinary dreams.

  3. youdbettertube

    This whole album is so wildly underrated, I can't even. And this is probably the best song on it. Damn.

  4. Rex Allaman

    Mick Boogie / Peter Bjorn & John - Stay This Way (Remix)

  5. lucky

    does anybody know what the instrument is that created that little sound at 2:36 or 2:47 and the very end? it reminds me of a little skeleton, I love everything about this song, but that's my favorite part!!

    FIJI VITA

    sounds like a low grain xylaphone or it may alo just be a stringed instrument with loose strings being strummed

    Haki W

    @FIJI VITA I think it's the guitar, but the player is plucking between the section where the tuning knobs meet the neck

  6. NeptuneVA

    not when your going to VMI.

  7. sarahsue11

    Dude, college is awesome. the sucky part comes after that.

  8. Colleen

    This is the perfect existential crisis song. Fantastic song from a fantastic band.

  9. NeptuneVA

    This song makes me think about my life. I really don't want to grow up, go to college, or change. Next year is going to suck.

  10. abbazabbajuice

  11. Ted Leather

    Best song on the album. Haven't heard a song quite like this one.

  12. einampriereikalo

  13. Simon Pietsch

    it's like the beatles and the gorillaz came together and made this song, but i know they didn't, it still sounds cool though

  14. Alex Lee

    THis song... so much meaning and substance.

    in the most un-hipster way possible, FUCK MAINSTREAM!

  15. Teo

    how come when I tryed to upload Peter Bjorn and John's song "I Want You" from the album "Living Thing" it got taken down by copyright infringement almost instantly, and you uploaded this song and it doesn't get taken down? :O I just can't find that song anywhere on the internet, but I have it on my pc and just want to share that wonderful piece of music with you guys
