Why do we have to go and face the same routine
And the traffic jams and crowded street's a real
Neurotic scene
I don't know, why do we take it each day, yeah

Why does my girl tell me she's got to
Have her way
Out all night, come home to fight
What am I to say
I don't know, why do we take it each day

Life is what it is
Who wants to try not to believe
That's the way it is

Oh, oh
I don't know why what you feel inside
Days go on
Love is something that you just can't hide
If it's wrong
Then you'll want to know, you don't know why
I sing a song
And it helps me yet I'll get by

At times
Lost in time sometimes your mind unwinds
Sun does shine
But no pleasure from your beauty's mine
Like champagne wine
A bitter taste that's so refined
Life it's fine
You always pay for what's behind

Why do I have to go and face the same routine
And the traffic jams and crowded street's a real
Neurotic scene
I don't know, why do we take it each day, yeah

Life is what it is
Who wants to try not to believe
That's the way it is
