The Way I Do

This song is by Team StarKid and appears on the album Apocalyptour (2012).

This is a live version of "The Way I Do". The lyrics differ from the original studio version released on Starship (2011).
When they say you can't love
I think you've got it wrong
And they say you can't feel
With a heart made of steel
But you can't say that steel ain't strong

Well, if that's who you are
Just a meaningless star in the sky
Tell me what is the meaning
Of what I am feeling if you are the reason why

Now I may be dumb
But where I come from
Folks say they're fine
When I know that they're blue

But you don't know you the way I do

Your kind is frail and weak
And I want to destroy you all
You're a sorry disgrace
To the concept of race
And to logical science and law

But for some reason why
When you look at me I don't wanna be
Programmed this way
Believe when I say you're the one anomaly

You might not be smart
But there is a part
Of me that's starting
To make a breakthrough

No, you don't know you the way I do

Dylan:   (Meredith:)
I never expected to find someone like you
(My wires are protected from abnormal things like you)
I don't know anything but you're giving me a clue
(When you know everything it is suddenly strange when you don't have a clue)

Dylan and Meredith:
I can see past the surface
Finding the worth
That is hiding beneath

Your life, and purpose
And all of sudden
I feel like I've run into something
That no one has seen

Jaime:   (Joey:)
You're perfect and wonderful
How I hoped you'd be
(February, I...)
And it's really enough
For you to be just a human being
(There's something I need to tell you)

And I know you'll agree
That that's all we need to make all of our dreams come true
(You're a dream come true)
If this life has an ending
(But I need to)
I'm glad that I'm spending this short little time with you
(Say something to you)

Jaime and Joey:   (Dylan and Meredith:)
I'm so much more
(So much more than)
Than what you thought before

Now that we have gotten to...

Get to know you...

Dylan and Meredith:
You don't know you...

But you don't know me...

...The way I do.
