Melissa Ferrick — I Like It That Way lyrics

Who knows if it'll work this time
Yeah but you said you were willing
To give it a try
And who knows if I will just stay in the back
Can't you see that I'm holding on here to a heart attack
Yeah but when my breath goes and my knees ache
You can be sure that there's rain comin' and I
Like it that way
I like it that way
I like it that way
Yeah but I'm a storyteller
But I'm the worst kind
Cause I'm the kind that makes you believe in love
Yeah I'm the kind that sits back patiently
Just waiting for the kill
You know that I'm the girl in the corner
And I'm holding your eyes still.
But I like it that way
I like it that way
I like it that way, yeah
Yeah, I like it that way
Hey, but it's my cross to bear
And my cross to carry
So I'm gonna leave it there
Baby, at the bottom of the stairs,
And I'm gonna get it later
When it's more convenient and when I'm a little
Less conceited
And I have got time to spare
Oh, when I have got time to spare
But I like it that way, yeah
I like it that way, yeah
Who knows if it'll work this time
Yeah but you said that you were willin
To give me a try
And I like it that way
Yeah, I like it that way
