This 1990 single from The Rembrandts' self-titled debut LP hit the charts around the world and got the group's career off to a big start. It peaked at #14 in the US and charted in many other countries as well, hitting the Top 10 in France, Austria, and Germany. The lyrics are about a man who's in a dead-end relationship with a woman who used him for a casual fling and spurned his efforts to make it serious. The song ends with the woman returning to the man for another try, but he says that while he had fun with her, it's too late for anything more and "that's just the way it is."
