Just the Way You Are
Goo Goo Dolls Lyrics


I'm in love because I know you
And I'm sorry I don't show you
And if I find that you ain't by me
Afraid no one know the things you see

How could you believe in someone sorry-sad like me?
I know the deal and I thank you anyway
And if you leave, you know I'm crawlin' at your feet
You never get weak when I'm leanin' hard on you
[Chorus]
But I guess that's just the way you are
And I guess it's just the way you are
Well, I guess it's just the way you are
Well, I guess it's just the way you are

And all the things that you don't show me
Like when you pretend that you don't know me
I waste a dime and I can't call you
I spend a lifetime if I fall for you

How could you believe in someone sorry-sad like me?
I know the deal and I thank you anyway
And if you leave, you know I'm crawlin' at your feet
You never get weak when I'm leanin' hard on you

[Chorus]

Hold me up [Repeat: x4]

I'm not saying this is greatest song ever written, but it is the greatest song ever written.

Grew up on this release. Listened to the cassette practically every night. A true gem.

@Kayla'sVlog Life Good to know just in case people ever wonder if this band put in their time.

@JayZombie1216 I bought a shirt and Robbie gave me a promo poster. I do remember telling him that the Goos were the best band ever, he replied "better than Led Zeppelin?" He was being funny. The drummer did not look happy at all, he was replaced soon after I believe. A very memorable show!

@Kayla'sVlog Life oh wow. Did they have t shirts and their records set out to buy? I'm sure they probably made 45$ that show hahaha.

Steinbot It was released on Slayer's former label.
Back then a lot of people thought of the Goo Goo's as an outright Replacements rip off.
Personally I liked them but their fans were a minority.

Steinbot I bought this the day it came out. My profile pic is my daughter, I was 20 at the time. It was underground, indie for sure. I didn't know any other fans of this. I loved this album. Saw them on this tour in San Jose at the Kennel Club. I kid u not, there were 3 people in the audience. It was awesome, I had em all to myself. This album and the one before it, Jed are my favorites..

After working at Lowe's and hearing at least two of their newer songs daily, I knew I had to start from the beginning a couple of months ago. Turns out I've loved a lot of their stuff but never knew who it was.Their self titled album and Jed hit hard and are great and now I'm to this point. It's interesting to see how their style progresses, it seems some like it and some don't like it of course but I've loved all of it to this point.

I had this on cassette and haven't heard it since 1991.
The live version from 90 or 91 is even better.
