Just The Way It Is, Baby

  • Do you remember once upon a time
    When you were mine
    The stars above were bright and new
    I pulled them down for you

    Just when I fell in love again
    You said that all good things must end
    Baby, that's just the way it is Baby
    Baby, that's just the way it is Baby

    I never had a head for solitaire
    It's so unfair
    That I'd should have my chance and lose
    Feel like I've been used to help you

    Through another night
    You spelled in out in black and white
    Baby, that's just the way it is Baby
    Baby, that's just the way it is Baby

    The tides that had once carried you away
    They bring you back again today
    Time has washed away my pain
    You'll find that things have changed

    And disappeared without a trace
    You can't get back what you've erased
    And I say
    Baby, that's just the way it is Baby

    That's just the way it is
    Baby, that's just the way it is Baby
    That's just the way it is

    Baby, that's just the way it is Baby
    Baby, that's just the way it is Baby
    Baby, that's just the way it is Baby
    Baby, that's just the way it is Baby
    Baby, that's just the way it is Baby
    Baby, that's just the way it is BabyWriter/s: DANNY C. WILDE, PHIL SOLEM
