Song facts

From a November 2001 interview:

‘Your Way’ was a song that I wrote at the same time as I wrote ‘She’s Given Up Talking’, on holiday in Jamaica. It’s got a little country feel to it; it’s the first song with which we tried harmonies with the guys in the band and the nice thing about the guys is they can all sing. That was a real good bonus for me. It’s another one of those that goes up the octave, so in a way it’s a bit like two sides of a personality singing to each other, like a man and a woman – ‘I like it, please don’t take my heart away. It’s happy, where it is, so let it stay’.

Lyrics

I like it
Please don't take my heart away
It's happy
Where it is so let it stay
You gave me love
You gave me what I wanted
You gave me love your way

I've seen it
Shining from the furthest stars
Like Venus
Saw it on the way to Mars
You gave me love
You gave me what I wanted
You gave me love your way

Your way is strong
Your way is right
Your way is mine tonight

I like it
Please don't take my heart away
It's happy
Where it is so let it stay
You gave me love
You gave me what I wanted
You gave me love your way

Your way is strong
Your way is right
Your way is mine tonight

Your way is strong
Your way is right
Your way is mine tonight

You gave me love your way
