Lyrics

Everybody's looking for a better way, to go about their day
And trying to get away from the cold fact,
That everybody's changin'
And that's just the way it goes

A lot of people question me, 'bout how I take things easily
But lately when I look at me
I'm not sure that I like all I see changin'
But that's just the way it goes

I know I can't avoid it
Couldn't stop it if I tried
I'd like to put a bullet through
That mean old Father Time
But he'd just keep right a comin'
And that's just the way it goes

When I think on all that's happened, all the people I have hurt these many years
It's hard to see the road ahead
Gotta pull over and wipe away the tears
And that's just the way it goes

I'd like to make it up to them, but mostly it's too late
So many have gone on, you know
I'd like my dad, to look and see me changin'
Guess that's just the way it goes

And I know I can't avoid it
Couldn't stop it if I tried
I'd like to bullet through
The turning hands of time
But they just keep right a rollin'
And that's just the it goes

I woke up late this morning, with the sun bright on my eyes
And her still there beside me
Even though there's no denying that we're changin'
And that's just the way it goes

At least I can look around me now, and see we're not alone
From the friends that I don't see no more, to the numbers on my phone
Everything's changin'
And that's just the way it goes

And I can't avoid it
Couldn't stop it if I tried
You know I'd like to put a bullet
Through the mean old Father time
But he'd he just keeps on a comin'
And that's just the way it goes

You know that time just keeps on rollin' by
And that's just the way it goes
