That's The Way
Jo Dee Messina Lyrics


Everybody wants an easy ride
On the merry-go-round that we call life
Take your drive on cruise control
Then you wait to find it's a winding road
I had my dreams in view
When the money ran out and the engine blew

Hung my tears out to dry
Then my dreams fell out of that clear blue sky
And I, I was walkin' the clouds
Feelin' so safe and sound
Then somethin' else knocks me down

Well, oh, that's the way it is (that's the way it is)
You gotta roll with the punches
That's the way it goes (that's the way it goes)
You gotta bend when the wind blows
You live, you learn, you crash and burn
It's hit or miss (that's the way)
And that's the way it is

One fine day, you wake up
Completely, hopelessly fallen in love
He's just what you're lookin' for
The only problem is that the man's not sure
Another guy'll give you everything
Only problem is you don't feel a thing
Well, I know from experience
Nothin's ever gonna make perfect sense
Oh, one day you get what you want
But it's not what you think
Then you get what you need

Well, oh, that's the way it is (that's the way it is)
You gotta roll with the punches
That's the way it goes (that's the way it goes)
You gotta bend when the wind blows
You live, you learn, you crash and burn
It's hit or miss (that's the way)
And that's the way it is

Yeah, they say your soul is growin'
But sometimes I feel like throwin' somethin'

And that's the way it is
You gotta roll with the punches
And that's the way it goes
You gotta bend when the wind blows
That's the way it is (that's the way it is)
You gotta roll with the punches
That's the way it goes (that's the way it goes)
You gotta bend when the wind blows

You live, you learn
You crash and burn
It's hit or miss, oh (that's the way it is)
And that's the way it is

That's the way it is (oh, that's the way it is)
You gotta roll with the punches
Yeah, that's the way it goes (that's the way it is)
Whoa-whoa-whoa-whoa
That's the way it is (that's the way it is)
You gotta roll with the punches
Yeah, that's the way it goes (oh)
Whoa-whoa-whoa-whoa (you gotta bend when the wind blows)
That's the way it is (oh, that's the way it goes)
You gotta roll with the punches (that's the way it is)
Yeah, that's the way it goes (that's the way it goes)
Whoa-whoa-whoa-whoa (oh yeah)
That's the way it is
You gotta roll with the punches

Everyone was into Faith and Shania, but I love Jo Dee since her debut single. Seen her 15 times in South Florida.
