That's The Way It Goes


 
 

 

 

 

I see you for the first time
Life suddenly seems sugar and lime
That's the way it goes
The next time, I catch you looking my way
I've never been so happy and gay
That's the way it goes
And now when you smile to me in the presence of your dad
I know for sure you have made me mad
That's the way it goes
Through the cleaveage of your window curtains when our eyes do meet
I think I had die of sugar if life got anymore sweet
That's the way it goes
Such pleasant days go sailing by
Yet I lack the balls to drop the coin, oh my
That's the way it goes
But on getting an invitation to your wedding
I decide to wear black and start silently wailing
That's the way it goes
You leave happily, in front of my eyes
Amidst the familiar good-byes
That's the way it goes
Years later we cross paths again, you with a toddler in your arms
You say to him,' Meet your uncle, he has been the best friend of your mom's.'
That's the way it goes!
