Lyrics

JUST THE WAY IT GOES

Spring spreads green hope across the land;
Eyes widen, dreams expand.
You and your sweetheart, hand in hand –
All just the way you planned.
How smooth and even your life flows;
Water love, and it grows.
That’s something everybody knows.
That’s just the way it goes.

That’s just the way it goes, boy,
Love can bring you so much joy.
Don’t need dodges and decoys;
Pure truth is all she employs.
Love can bring you so much joy;
That’s just the way it goes, boy.

Summer heats up such strong desire,
Rekindles that cold fire.
You and your sweetheart in love’s choir;
Each note’s one step higher.
No more ashes, just red-hot coals;
Embrace love, and it glows.
That’s something everybody knows;
That’s just the way it goes.

That’s just the way it goes, man;
Better make love while you can.
I sure hope you understand,
All love’s built on time’s quicksand.
Better make love while you can;
That’s just the way it goes, man.

Autumn chills our hearts and our souls,
Stops us short of our goals.
You and your sweetheart fan love’s coals
While that mission bell tolls -
Too late for the withering rose.
Love dries up, the wind blows,
That’s something everybody knows;
That’s just the way it goes.

That’s just the way it goes, son,
After all is said and done.
Though love’s free for everyone,
There comes a time when there’s none.
After all is said and done,
That’s just the way it goes, son.
