WAY OF THE WORLD

 

ITíS NOT FOR US TO DENY A MAN HIS FREEDOM,

YOU DONíT GET MUCH OF IT SO GRAB IT WHILE YOU CAN,

AND AS EVERY MINUTE PASSES BY,

SLOWLY, I BEGIN TO UNDERSTAND.

 

CHORUS

ITíS OUT OF MY HANDS,

ITíS OUT OF MY HANDS,

AND ITíS THE WAY OF THE WORLD,

AND ITíS THE WAY OF THE WORLD.

 

SOMETIMES YOU TRY TO LIVE YOUR LIFE WITH REASON,

SOMETIMES YOU EVEN TRY TO LIVE IT FAIR,

THEREíS ALWAYS SOMEONE AROUND JUST TO MESS IT UP,

HIS HEAD IS FULL OF HATE AND HE DONíT CARE.

 

CHORUS

 

THE SMILING FACES THAT YOU SEE THROUGH THE DAYTIME,

HIDE IN DOORWAYS AND IN STREET CORNERS AT NIGHT,

MAYBE THIS TIME YOUíILL GET AWAY,

THAT DAY THEY DIDNíT GET YOU,

BUT TOMORROW THEY MIGHT.
