Simon Townshend – The Way It Is lyrics

The way I'm feeling now I don't know how I will survive
Like this, but that's the way it is
It's not what you want it's what you've got
You can't hang on to love, best admit
That's the way it is,
It's the way it is, not the way it could be
The way it was, or the way it should be
The things you miss, your lover's kiss
A voice you never could resist
You hear it echo in the mist saying, that's the way it is
Oh, the feelings gone, so what went wrong
Don't search for reason why
'Cause that's that
That's just where it's at
Like it or not, it's what is what and there's no turning back
Get this, that's just the way it is
It's the way it is not the way it could be,
The way it is was or the way it should be
The things you miss your lover's kiss a voice you never could resist
You hear it echo in the mist, saying that's the way it is
Soaking up the rain to wash away the pain
Can somebody explain why it's driving me insane
I'm soaking up the sun for I'm not the only one
That's been burned by love,
Oh, the days are long and the nights are young
You must come to terms
Don't be afraid cause that's the state of play
You can only have what you can have so give up on the ghost
That once was, there maybe no 'because'
Just the way it is not the way it could
The way it was, or the way it should be
The things you miss, your lover's kiss, a voice you never could resist
Punching air with your clenched fist will not change this
'Cause that's the way it is,
Get this, that's just the way it is
