The Bruisers – The Way It Goes lyrics

He bought the car for 500 bucks
It took every cent he had
With a cross taped to the dash for luck
Never wanted anything so bad
Nobody knew he left town that day
Cause they never know he was there
The funny looking kid with the cheap tattoos
And grease stuck in his hair

But he just said
That's the way it goes
When you're around nobody knows
And when your gone life goes on
With a loveless heart and a tank full of gas
He headed out onto the overpass
Gonna take that road wherever it goes

That was 4 or 5 years ago
And that old car's running still
He thinks about going back sometimes
But he knows that he never will
He's been playing with fire and he's been burned
And it's got him feeling low
He just laughs and turns the radio on
Cause that's the way it goes

But he just said
That's the way it goes
When you're around nobody knows
And when your gone life goes on
With a loveless heart and a tank full of gas
He headed out onto the overpass
Gonna take that road wherever it goes

He pulled into town around 9 o'clock
And that's when that old car died
On an empty street with no cars in sight
He just pushed it to the side
He looked up and saw that girl drive by
He just turned and watched her go
She was the best damn girl he'd ever seen
He just laughed cause that's the way it goes

But he just said
That's the way it goes
When you're around nobody knows
And when your gone life goes on
With a loveless heart and a tank full of gas
He headed out onto the overpass
Gonna take that road wherever it goes
