That's the Way Love Turned Out for Me (Ry Cooder)

Brand new day, brave new man It's a miracle what love can do All the joy romance can bring Come smiling down on a heart that's true Love is real, you can't turn it around It's like a river running down to the sea This old world turns around for lovers like you It's not the way love turned out for me People in love build a house they can share Takes a long time to get it just right But a fire can start in the kitchen somewhere And burn that little house down overnight A flame burning bright in your heart I believed that you turned it on just for me Another man held that fire, burned our house to the ground That's the way love turned out for me People turn out for the big show Pretty flowers turn out in the spring And the light turns out in the kitchen When somebody pulls on the string There's no light burning in my kitchen And no doors open up with my key I ain't got nobody to turn to And that's the way love turned out for me See I ain't got nobody to turn to, people That's the way love turned out for me Love, oh, love turned out that way for me I don't know if I .. But that's the way it turned out for Everybody knows what I'm talking about Love turned out that way for me Hello, .. goodbye
