The Way It Seems to Go

Album: Chesapeake (2011)

Songfacts®:

  • This song finds Alternative Rock singer-songwriter Rachael Yamagata attempting Hip-Hop. She told Magnet magazine: "I think my humor comes through on this album and that song. People think I'm super deep, and I am dark and like dark songs, but it allows me to be happier in my everyday life. That was a song that has a lyric that's truthful to who I am. We had fun with it."
