lyrics

When I heard it from a friend
That something could begin and end between us,
It made me nervous,
Too out of focus to comprehend.
I took you to a show,
And by the time I got back home,
I’d never felt so far from ever having been alone,
But I could not hold the energy – I had to let it go.

And there ain’t no way to hide it,
When love carries you along,
It carries you much farther than you were planning on,
But you would not wanna change it,
And you could not if you tried,
Because it only comes along with you for the ride.

Better a love that is on the way out the door. (x2)

A week or two went by of me trying to believe my eyes,
When something that gave no warning
Began dissolving, got left behind,
So now you’re just a name, in the absence of a photo,
Framed in memory of electricity running through me long ago,
When I hooked up to that energy that I could not control.

And there ain’t no way to hide it,
When love carries you away,
It carries you much farther than I would care to say,
But you would not wanna change it,
And you could not if you tried,
Because it only comes along with you for the ride.

Better a love that is on the way out the door. (x2)

Better a love that is on the way,
Better a love that is on your way –
There’s never a love but this anyway,
Never a love but this anyway.
Better a love that is on the way,
Better a love that is on your way,
Better a love that is on the way.
