The Temperance Movement – The Way It Was And The Way It Is Now lyrics
It's a timely warning when you're picking at your skin
It's a telling sign when you line 'em up again
Now I don't wish you trouble and I'm always kind
Stay wealthy in your wonder, take time out of your mind

If you tell me how it was
I will tell you how it is now
Don't talk about the way it was
'Cause all there is is the way it is now

Oh, that's all there is

There's a sense of doom and it follows me around
I get so used to it, that it feels like a friend
Now all my misdemeanours and my shameful ways
Ain't nothing in the scheme of it no matter what you say

If you tell me how it was
I will tell you how it is now
If you tell me how it was
I will tell you how it is now
If you tell me how it was
I will tell you how it is now
Don't talk about the way it was
'Cause all there is is the way it is now

All there is is the way it is now

If you tell me how it was
I will tell you how it is now
If you tell me how it was
I will tell you how it is now
If you tell me how it was
I will tell you how it is now
If you tell me how it was
I will tell you how it is now

If you tell me how it was
I will tell you how it is now
If you tell me how it was
I will tell you how it is now
If you tell me how it was
I will tell you how it is now
Don't talk about the way it was
'Cause all there is is the way it is now
