    Can't seem to figure out some of the lines in this song. Love it regardless! Any thoughts on the more questionable parts?

    Girl Like You

    shaking off the morning dew
    now i never met a girl like you
    trying to see the land as it lies
    it's like i'm driving with the sun in my eyes
    not a thought in my head what to do
    cuz i never met a girl like you

    keeping/clearing your head when you set most sights (??)
    feeling your bed when the loneliness bites
    trying to get ready where they hit most heights (??)

    i'm working on it
    i'm working on it
    i'm working on it
    i'm working on it
    i'm working on it
    i'm working on it

    someone left the door ajar
    now i'm nowhere near who you are
    i walking with the king of days (??)
    now my house is full of waste and strays
    not a thought in my head what to do
    cuz i never met a girl like you

    keeping/clearing your head when you set most sights (??)
    feeling your bed when the loneliness bites
    trying to get ready where they hit most heights (??)

    i'm working on it
    yeah, working on it
    i'm working on it
    i'm working on it
    i'm working on it
    yeah, working on it

    when i'm trying to figure one or the other (?? - 4/30 show makes this sound slightly different - "fit one in the other"?)
    but settling if i don't
    i'm trying to get along with my brother
    but my brother is so hard to love
    i don't want no soul to sell
    but it's not an easy life to t(?? - tour? talk?)

    so i'm working on it
    yeah, working on it

    i don't know what you are to me
    i don't know where i wanna be

    Hey darinCMU

    Here's a couple of suggestions, I may be well off though..

    Trying to see the land as it lies
    Like driving with the sun in my eyes

    Clearing your head of the sentiments and sights
    Feeling your bed when the loneliness bites
    Trying to get rid of the...?????

    I think it may be 'I was walking with a cane in a daze'

    DG.com now has all the lyrics for Mutineers posted. Here are the posted lyrics for Girl Like You:

    Shaking off the morning dew
    No I never met a girl like you
    Trying to see the land as it lies
    Is like driving with the sun in my eyes
    Not a thought in my head what to do
    Cos I never met a girl like you

    Clear in your head when you’re setting those sights
    Fear in your bed when the loneliness bites
    Try to get rid we’ll be hitting those heights

    I’m working on it
    I’m working on it
    I’m working on it
    I’m working on it
    I’m working on it
    Yeah working on it

    Someone left the door ajar
    Now I’ve no idea who you are
    Not a thought in my head what to do
    Cos I never met a girl like you

    Clear in your head when you’re setting those sights
    Fear in your bed when the loneliness bites
    Try to get rid we’ll be hitting those heights

    I’m working on it
    I’m working on it
    I’m working on it
    I’m working on it
    I’m working on it
    Yeah working on it
    I’m working on it
    Ah working on it
    Well I’m trying to fit one in the other
    But 7 into 5 don’t go
    I’m trying to get along with my brother
    But my brother is so hard to know
    I don’t want no soul to suffer
    But it’s not an easy line to toe
    So I’m working on it
    Ah working on it

    Don’t know what you are to me
    Don’t know where I want to be
    Don’t know what you are to me
    Don’t know where I want to be

    When you listen again and listen to all the live recordings and remember back to the concerts you may notice like me that @DarinCMU wasn't that bad with his guess..

    He sings "I was walking with the king of days - Now my house is full of waifs and strays" eventhough it isn't in the official lyrics.. I think he changed his mind on this or they just did an issue.

    Listen here again:

    Amazing how we all have interpretations of some lyrics, especially during live performances... I know personally I tend to get lost in a daze when I am experiencing the music live... sometimes I conjure up my own lyrics all together when I'm lost in those moments..... those moments are truly the ones when I feel the music completely and have disappeared momentarily from everything and everyone.... my escape....
