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 out 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
You gotta roll with the punches
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
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

The 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
You gotta roll with the punches
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
And that's the way it is

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

Well, Oh, That's the way it is
You gotta roll with the punches
That's the way it goes
You gotta bend when the wind blows
Well, That's the way it is
You gotta roll with the punches
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
And that's the way it is

Miss this kind of country...

FamilyHistoriandude

Back when country music had meaning.

Katie Rosell

@countrygirl country musiclover this is back when singers actually had to be able to sing, be a decent human being, and they didn’t lip sync their way around the world and have all this equipment to be able to make anyone sound like they can sing. And not to mention right now with the corona life the reality is people are now paying hundreds to thousands of dollars to watch people sing over private live internet feed rather then being able to go to a concert.

Katie Rosell

If only we all knew years later we’d be rolling with the punches and that’s the way it is now with coronavirus life now.

Olaf Elsberry

@Stephanie Drake this is pop not country

Kathy Bates

@countrygirl country musiclover no, not even close

Stephanie Drake

@countrygirl country musiclover if you grew up in the 90's and listened to REAL country music, you'd understand.

Rediscovering all the songs I grew up with as a kid :')

I'm assuming the title was shortened to avoid confusion with Celine Dion's "That's the Way It Is", which came out a year before.

Jackie Kaufman
