It's in the Way That You Use It Lyrics

It's in the way that you use it
It comes and it goes
It's in the way that you use it
Boy don't you know
And if you lie you will lose it
Feelings will show
So don't you ever abuse it
Don't let it go
Nobody's right until somebody's...

    Being your try self when authenticly loving someone. Partners always know when a pretenders "game" is up.

    I think on one level it's about not wasting talent. That was the theme of "The Color of Money," anyway.
