The Way You Do (a demo)

A little rhythm & blues.

Somewhat outside my norm, but not so that it feels unnatural. Just the opposite in fact.

I’m trying here for a romantic tune immersed in the real world. Describing love beyond the hot fires of passion and physical characteristics and without metaphors. Not how someone makes you feel, but why? Not how they look. But what they do. No moons or stars in the sky, no wide waters.

Most women find it odd than a George Clooney doesn’t realize or think much about the fact that he is drop-dead gorgeous. Imagine us ordinary schmoes. Hence, my favorite line:

you tell he’s handsome when he can’t see himself the way you do.

This is a mature love that is letting the other be himself, like watching endless games on TV.

And though there’s a lack of nagging, she isn’t without her convictions, and I’ve always wanted to write a song with the line: “walk a my in another man’s shoes.”

 

The above is just me and my guitar, though I can hear some sax

The Way You Do

(intro refrain):

I’ve never seen a woman love a man, the way you do
I’ve never seen a woman love a man, like you do

You love him like you’re never going to leave him, like some do
You take him in you arms and you chase away his blues

(outro refrain):

No I’ve never seen a woman love a man like you do

(intro refrain)

you stand beside your man and never put him down, like some do
you tell he’s handsome when he can’t see himself the way you do

(outro refrain)
(lead)

(bridge):

and all you get back in return
Is a man with an undying love

 

(intro refrain)

you let him watch his endless games on the tv, when he wants to
and when he comes to bed late you just roll over and make room
(outro refrain)

(intro refrain)
you never complain or nag him or make him jump through hoops
but you will remind him to walk a mile in another man’s shoes
(outro refrain):

No I’ve never seen a woman love a man like you do
No I’ve never seen a woman love a man like you do
No, I’ve never, seen a woman, quite like you
