I Have No Words For Chris Stapleton’s Latest Performance…

Goodness.

There’s only so many times you can say “chills” or “goosebumps” with this guy before you’re simply left at a loss for words. His most recent performance, an acoustic rendition of “Either Way” on Charlie Rose, is spectacular.

This song, is also on another level. Written by Stapleton, along with Tim James and Kendall Marvel, it paints the picture of a crumbling love life.

Here are the lyrics, followed by the breathtaking performance…

We pass in the hall on our way to separate rooms
The only time we ever talk is when the monthly bills are due
We go to work, we go to church
We fake the perfect life
I’m past the point of giving damns
All my tears are cried

We can just go on like this
Say the word, we’ll call it quits
Baby, you can go or you can stay
But I won’t love you either way

It’s been so long since I’ve felt
Anything inside these walls
You can’t help, you can’t hurt
When you don’t feel at all
I used to cry and stay up nights
And wonder what went wrong
It’s been hard
But hearts can only do that for so long

We can just go on like this
Say the word, we’ll call it quits
Baby, you can go or you can stay
I won’t love you either way

We can just go on like this
Say the word, we’ll call it quits
Baby, you can go or you can stay
But I won’t love you either way
