Funny the Way It Is
Dave Matthews Band Lyrics


Lying in the park,
On a beautiful day.
Sunshine in the grass,
And the children play.
Sirens passin',
Fire engine red.
Someone's house is burning down,
On a day like this.

The evening comes,
And we're hanging out,
On the front step and a car goes by,
With the windows rolled down.
And that War song is playing â??Why can't we be friends?â??
Someone is screaming and crying in the apartment upstairs.

Funny the way it is.
If you think about it.
Somebody's going hungry,
And someone else is eating out.
Funny the way it is.
Not right or wrong.
Somebody's heart is broken,
And it becomes your favorite song.

The way her mouth feels in a lover's kiss.
Like a pretty bird on the breeze,
Or water to a fish.
The bomb blast brings a building crashing to the floor.
Hear the laughter,
While the children play war.

Funny the way it is.
If you think about it
One kid walks ten miles to school,
Another's droppin' out.
Funny the way it is.
Not right or wrong.
On a soldier's last breath,
His baby's being born.

Standing on a bridge.
Watch the water passing underneath,
It must have been much harder,
When there was no bridge, just water.
Now the world is small,
Compared to how it used to be,
With mountains and oceans,
And winters and rivers and stars.

There's the sky,
The jet plane so far out of my reach.
Is there someone up there looking down on me?
A boy chase a bird,
So close but every time,
He never catch her,
But he can't stop trying.

Funny the way it is.
If you think about it
One kid walks ten miles to school,
Another's droppin' out.
Funny the way it is.
Not right or wrong.
On a soldier's last breath,
His baby's being born.

Funny the way it is.
Not right or wrong.
Somebody's broken heart,
Becomes your favorite song.
Funny the way it is.
If you think about it.
One kid walks ten miles to school,
Another's droppin' out.

Standing on a bridge.
Watch the water passing underneath,
It must have been much harder,
When there was no bridge, just water.
Now the world is small,
Compared to how it used to be,
With mountains and oceans,
And winters and rivers and stars.

I got a Drake ad before this video. The insult to music is intense there.

james staggs

@HawksNest Drake's music is trash. Has nothing to do with style, era or anything else other than he makes bad music.

Hawks-then why did so many people agree with Nick, then? Are you implying they are all rigidly closed-minded\self-righteous, or say-stuck in a "Different era?" Because if so, such an arbitrary inference is based off a logically contradictory system, called moral relativity. Moral relativity decimates its own position, by believing itself to be absolutely unquestionably (A trait of dogma also found in empirical deterministic "faith in 5 senses alone, period) precepts of anti-metaphysical science) deterministically true. That cannot logically be probable, based off shaky premises of phenomenonical subjectivism. And if All art has equally important value, that means that trivial cultural superficial waste can get away with being twisted as "beautiful\precious\signifigant. "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder " requires a belief system , just as moral absolutism does. One is a non-secular belief system , whereas the other is a secularized belief system. Ethics 101. You are prompting them to think beyond what you may label a opinion\perspective, but I am ironically the one informing you of the whole equation of cultural big pictures and their intrinsic double standards. If you reply I mean no personal disrespect , so no name-calling, plz. Thx : )

Nick Nolte Just a different era and culture. No disrespect there.
