Melissa Lou Etheridge (geboren in Leavenworth in Kansas, VS) is een rockzangeres die in Nederland vooral bekend is dankzij haar top 3-hit Like The Way I Do (de live-uitvoering uit 1993). De gewone uitvoering was in 1989 ook al een hit in ons land.


Ze is ook bekend als homorechtenactiviste. Tijdens de inauguratie van Bill Clinton in 1993 maakte ze bekend dat ze zelf lesbienne is.

In 2007 kreeg Etheridge een Oscar voor I Need To Wake Up, dat gebruikt werd in de film An Inconvenient Truth van Al Gore. Het werd in Nederland geen hit. In 2011 mocht ze haar eigen ster onthullen op de beroemde Hollywood Walk of Fame in Los Angeles.


Songtekst

Please baby, can't you see my mind's a burnin' hell
I got razors a rippin' and tearin' and strippin'
My heart apart as well
Tonight you told me that you ache for something new
And some other woman is lookin' like something
That might be good for you

Go on and hold her 'til the screaming is gone
Go on believe her when she tells you nothing's wrong
But I'm the only one who'll walk across a fire for you
And I'm the only one who'll drown in my desire for you
It's only fear that makes you run
The demons that you're hiding from
When all your promises are gone, I'm the only one

Please baby, can't you see I'm trying to explain
I've been here before and I'm locking the door
And I'm not going back again
Her eyes and arms and skin won't make it go away
You'll wake up tomorrow and wrestle the sorrow
That holds you down today

Go on and hold her 'til the screaming is gone
Go on believe her when she tells you nothing's wrong
But I'm the only one who'll walk across a fire for you
And I'm the only one who'll drown in my desire for you
It's only fear that makes you run
The demons that you're hiding from
When all your promises are gone, I'm the only one

(Repeat)

And I'm the only one who'll drown in my desire for you
It's only fear that makes you run
The demons that you're hiding from
When all your promises are gone, I'm the only one

I'm the only one, baby
I'm the only one
Ain't nobody else is gonna love you, baby
Ain't nobody else is gonna love you
