The Kooks – Sway lyrics

Say whatever you have to say, I'll stand by you.
Do whatever you have to do, to get it out and not become a reactionary
To hurt the ones you love, you know you never meant to but you did
Oh yeah you did

Be whoever you have to be, I won't judge you
And sing whatever you have to sing to get it out and not become a recluse about your house, come out
I know you never meant to but you did
Oh but you did

Still I need your sway, 'cause you always pay for it
And I, and I need your soul 'cause you're always soulful
And I and I need your heart, 'cause you're always in the right places

And take whatever you have to take, you know I love ya
And come however you have to come, and get it out and get it out

Tttttake it out on me, and take it out on me
I'd give it you all, I'd give it you all,
I'd give it - I'd give it you all, I'd give it you all,
Yes I would give it you all

'Cause I need your sway, 'cause you always pay for it
And I, and I need your soul 'cause you're always soulful
And I and I need your heart, 'cause you're always in the right places

Oh yes I will, I will give it you all

Still I need your sway, 'cause you always pay for it
And I, and I need your soul 'cause you're always soulful
And I and I need that heart, 'cause you're always in the right places

    To my understanding, this song was written about the band's ex-bass guitarist max. He left the band in 2008 because the music industry lifestyle was becoming too much for him (the drugs, partying etc) was taking its toll. Pritchard wrote this song about him. I interpret it as a sad song, about accepting someone's decision to move on in life because they're not the person they used to be. Beautiful song. Just my take on it.
