The Story

“I wrote the lyrics of Your Way as part of an online poetry contest about expressing Tenderness. And yes, for me Tenderness is an expression of love.

I was reminded, as I wrote it, of an actual event. I was coming back home from work, exhausted, and did it show. A friend met me in that state. Rather than seeking to show off his wit and genius by stating the obvious as many would, they simply pressed their lips against my forehead. That, to me, said ‘I understand’ and ‘it’s ok’. We connected as humans, knowing both what we daily undergo and how some days it just drains the life out of us. Your Way was born.

Maya Angelou said ‘people don’t remember what you say but how you make them feel‘. Only a true friend makes you sigh out the toxicity of life with the simplest of gestures, motivated by the purest of intentions and the sincerest empathy. By expressing this, this song hopes to be that friend.

Your Way: Lyrics

It is the breath of your love
On my messy hair
On the nape of my broken neck

It is the fresh tear of love
On my cracked lips
On my dried up mind

It is the rainbow, the smile of your love
On my stubbornness

But no more… rather simply
It is your love talking to me
It is not you, It is me…
As I feel you
It is not what love can say
But love saying it your way
