It Works

verse 1: I meet you every morning in the hallway
You're heading off to bed
Just as I'm starting out my day
I just laugh and shake my head and kiss your sleepy eyes
Others may not understand but I realize
chorus: It's backwards, inside out, and upside down
But it works
You turned everything I thought I knew about love all around
But it works
I don't know what I ever did to earn a love like yours
It's a mystery to me
But it works
It works
verse 2: Your best friend has some issues with his girlfriend
And other couples seem
To have their differences to mend
But none of them seem quite as far apart as you and me
But there's no reason why we should always agree
  (repeat chorus)
bridge: Maybe it seems like we don't have a single thing in common
But then again when you look at me
I can tell we fell in love the same exact way
And the more signs we see
That say we probably should leave
Are only gonna make us wanna stay
  (repeat chorus)
tag: It's backwards, upside down, and right side wrong
But it works
You broke down the walls around my heart I thought were so strong
But it works
It's backwards, inside out, and upside down
But it works
