As You Are
Travis Lyrics


Well I play an old guitar from nine till half past one
I'm just tryin' to make a livin' watching everybody else havin' fun
Well I don't miss much if it happens on a dancehall floor
Mercy look what just walked through that door

Well hello T-R-O-U-B-L-E
Tell me what in the world
You doin' A-L-O-N-E
Yeah say hey good L double O-K-I-N-G
Well I smell T-R-O-U-B-L-E

I was a little bitty baby when my papa hit the skids
Mama had a time tryin' to raise nine kids
She told me not to stare cause it was impolite
She did the best she could to try to raise me right

Cause mama never told me 'bout nothin' like why-O-you
Bet your mama musta been another good lookin' honey too
Hey good L double O-K-I-N-G
Well I smell T-are-O-you-be -L-E

Well a sweet talkin', sexy walkin', honky tonkin' baby
The men are gonna love ya and the woman gonna hate ya
Remindin' them of everything they're never gonna be
May be the beginning of a world war three

Cause the world ain't ready for nothing like why-O-you
I bet your mama musta been another good lookin' mama too
Hey say hey good L double O-K-I-N-G
Well I smell T-R-O-U-B-L-E

I said hey
I said hey
I said hey
I said hey
I said hey
I smell T-R-O-U-B-L-E

Everyday I wake up alone
I'm not like the other boys
And ever since I was young
I had no choice
But it's OK to lead me on
I admit it's not much fun
To be led on by such a one
As you are
As you are
As you are
And ever since I woke up I felt the net
Was lifting me out of the sea
And even when I'm sinking I feel the need
But it's OK to lead me on
I admit it's not much fun
To be led on by such a one
As you are
As you are
As you are
And ever since a long time
I felt the rain
And there was no danger
And no more strangers
As you are

Everyday I wake up alone
I'm not like the other boys
And ever since I was young
I had no choice

But it's OK to lead me on
I admit it's not much fun
To be led on by such a one
As you are
As you are
As you are

And ever since I woke up I felt the net
Was lifting me out of the sea
And even when I'm sinking I feel the need

But it's OK to lead me on
I admit it's not much fun
To be led on by such a one
As you are
As you are
As you are

And ever since a long time
I felt the rain
And there was no danger
And no more strangers
As you are

Everyday I wake up alone
I'm not like all the other boys
And ever since I was young
I had no choice
But it's OK to lead me on
I admit it's not much fun
To be led on by such a one
As you are
As you are
As you are

And ever since I woke up I felt the net
Was lifting me out of the sea
And even when I'm sinking I feel the need
But it's OK to lead me on
I must admit it's not much fun
To be alone with such a one
As you are
As you are
As you are

And ever since a long time
I felt the rain
And there was no danger
And no more strangers
As you are

Atte. to the vocalist :
Why do you sing so beautiful ?
What moves you ??
Love ?
Nature : Sky , Waterfalls , Rainbows ,
Birds ????
Dreams : Women you saw in your dreams ??
Or simply... Your love for music ???
Please answer my question.
I have 10 songs from my own
composition. I would like to share it someday.
By the way this song makes my tears fall like a waterfall. Not because I am sad . it's because is so beautiful.
And only 3 songs on Earth make me cry because of the melody and voice.
My list :
Rolling Stones : Angie
Keane : Sunshine
Coldplay : Daylight ( The real Coldplay )
Radiohead : No surprises
Alice in Chains : Shame
Collective Soul: December
Eels : Your lucky day in Hell
Depeche Mode : I'm talking to you now
Joan Baez : Tumbleweed
And this song from your band.
I hope you answer my question.

This album is perfect. one of my favourites of all time... everytime I listen to it, it brings tears to my eyes of how perfect and beautiful each song is

Jack of Shadows

I bought the song book [guitar transciptions] cos I ws certain they used some alternative tunings. Either way, they have some great tunes on this album. The hidden track 'Blue Flashing Light' is probably my favourite. I wonder why it was hidden?

A.Y. H

Me too :)

Frank Zappelin

this song makes me cry every time
