The Way That It Is


VERSE:


First in line,

Last one home,

In the crowd,

All alone,


Second best,

Third rate drag,

Passed the test,

On my back,


CHORUS:


I can’t sleep,

I can’t eat,

Never keep,

You know that’s the way that it is,


I can’t cry,

And I won’t die,

Knowing why,

Cause that’s just the way that it is,


VERSE:


World’s so big,

And I’m so small,

I can’t have,

All I want,


And life’s too short,

For doing good,

Halfway there,

Done all I could,


And loves so strange,

It clouds my brain,

Pulls me down,

Still I stay,

Come what may,


CHORUS:


I can’t sleep,

I can’t eat,

Never keep,

You know that’s the way that it is,


I can’t cry,

And I won’t die,

Knowing why,

Cause that’s just the way that it is,


MID:


And it feels,

Surreal,

(Cause that’s just the way that it is)

I’m still here,

And I feel,

(Cause that’s just the way that it is)


OUTRO:


Know that’s the way that it is,

Know that’s the way that it is,

You know that’s the way that it is,

Cause that’s just the way that it is,
