Ain't That Just The Way (McNeal Lutricia)

Ain't that just the way that life goes Down, down, down, down Movin' way too fast or much too slow He was a very special warm and gentle person Who put the music in the world and spoke in rhyme And it hurts me that I never really knew him ‘Cause all it would have taken was some time You know he always seemed to be there when I stumbled And when mountains got too steep for me to climb And it tears me up to think I never touched him ‘Cause all it would have taken was some time Ain't that just the way that life goes Down, down, down, down Movin' way too fast or much too slow Gettin' up, gettin' high, gettin' down Gettin' no, no, nowhere But not gettin' into someone I should know Now he's in another place and I can't reach him And I feel as though I'm guilty of a crime I took all he had to give and gave him nothin' And all it would have taken was some time Ain't that just the way that life goes Down, down, down, down Movin' way too fast or much too slow Gettin' up, gettin' high, gettin' down Gettin' no, no, nowhere But not gettin' into someone I should know Ain't that just the way that life goes Down, down, down, down Movin' way too fast or much too slow Gettin' up, gettin' high, gettin' down Gettin' no, no, nowhere But not gettin' into someone I should know Gettin' up, gettin' high, gettin' down Gettin' no, no, nowhere Gettin' up, gettin' high, gettin' down Gettin' no, no, nowhere Gettin' up, gettin' high, gettin' down Gettin' no, no, nowhere Gettin' up, gettin' high, gettin' down Gettin' no, no, nowhere Ain't that just the way that life goes Down, down, down, down Movin' way too fast or much too slow Gettin' up, gettin' high, gettin' down Gettin' no, no, nowhere But not gettin' into someone I should know Ain't that just the way that life goes Down, down, down, down Movin' way too fast or much too slow
