Something in the Way

Jorja Smith

Something in the Way Lyrics

[Verse 1]
When I left I thought I would be stronger
But in fact, it took away my energy
Hard to tell you that I could not really see
Beyond the gates of this purgatory

I am so tainted now, I cannot wash you off
The memories still don't seem to fade
When I left, did you even wash your tears?
'Cause mine have been dryin' for days

[Chorus]
Somethin' in the way
Why am I cryin' for you, babe?
Can't stand the rain
Time to move on anyway

[Post-Chorus]
Don't ask me why
It's done
So long, goodbye
I'm gone

[Refrain]
'Cause only sun in the summer lasts
No holdin' on and no lookin' back
Even the sun doesn't seem to last
It don't hold on, it's not comin' back

[Verse 2]
If I kept a hold a little longer
I would never think I'd ever get away
Don't want to say I tried to keep ya
Say love is blind, I couldn't see you change, no
Don't wanna find myself back in that place
I have wasted all my tears on fools
There was no help for me, no savin' grace
I had been tryin' for days

[Chorus]
There was somethin' in the way
Why am I cryin' for you, babe?
No I can't stand the rain
Time to move on anyway

[Post-Chorus]
Don't ask me why
It's done
So long, goodbye
I'm gone

[Refrain]
'Cause only sun in the summer lasts
No holdin' on and no lookin' back
Even the sun doesn't seem to last
It don't hold on, it's not comin' back

[Instrumental Bridge]

[Chorus]
Well there was somethin' in the way
Why am I cryin' for you, babe?
I can't stand the rain
Time to move on anyway

[Refrain]
'Cause only sun in the summer lasts
No holdin' on and no lookin' back
Even the sun doesn't seem to last
It don't hold on, it's not comin' back
Even the sun in the summer doesn't seem to last
No holdin' on and no lookin' back
Even the sun doesn't seem to last
It don't hold on, it's not comin' back

About “Something in the Way”

(Unreviewed)

On the opening track to Project 11, her first EP, Jorja flaunts herself as an independent woman not interested in holding onto someone who won’t give her what she needs, while managing to show that she’s vulnerable as well. The soulful track draws similarities to Amy Winehouse, Jorja’s biggest inspiration.

iTunes reviewed this track as
“The aching Something In The Way marks Smith out as her hero Amy Winehouse’s truest successor.”
