All of the Ways
Interpol Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Tell me you're mine
Baby, tell me you're mine to break the ice
Does he make you smile?
Does he fully embrace the way?
Does he mean to you to the fight that you like?
Who is this guy?

Between me you'll find
Does he know that I wait for all time?
Does he make you right?
Does he say that he'd like to know you?
Does he say that he wants to know?

All of the ways you will make it up
Make it up for me
Make it up for me

Tell me you'll fight
Baby tell me it's hard to fake it time after time
Baby who is this guy?
Does he say that he'd like to know you?
Does he say that he wants to know?
Does he say that he wants to know?

All of the ways you will make it up
Make it up for me
Make it up for me

I know the way you will make it up
Make it up for me
I know the way you will make it up
Make it up for me
I know and I know the way you will make it up
Make it up for me




I know and I know the way you will make it up
Make it up for me

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Interpol's song "All of the Ways" seem to be a plea from the singer to his love interest to confess her feelings for him. The song appears to be a one-sided conversation, as the singer asks a series of rhetorical questions about the woman's current relationship. He asks if her current partner fully embraces her in the way he does, if he knows that the singer waits for her, and if he makes her feel right.


The repetitive chorus of "All of the ways you will make it up, make it up for me" suggests that the singer is waiting for the woman to make a move and confess her love to him, and that he is willing to forgive and forget any wrongdoings on her part. The line "tell me you'll fight" indicates that the singer wants the woman to fight for him, despite any difficulties they may face. The final repetition of "I know the way you will make it up" suggests that the singer is confident in the woman's affections for him, and that he knows she will eventually come to him.


Overall, the lyrics of "All of the Ways" suggest a longing for a deeper connection between two individuals, and a willingness to forgive past mistakes in pursuit of love.
