That's The Way It is
Ella Fitzgerald and Ink Spots Lyrics


I tremble at your touch
I know I shouldn't
But that's the way it is

I want you oh-so much
I know I shouldn't
But that's the way it is

I can see so clearly
That we are worlds apart
But when you are near me
I can't see beyond my heart

I worship at your shrine
You said I shouldn't
But that's the way it is

I begged you to be mine
I said I wouldn't
But that's the way it is

I love you forever
Though it may never be
But that's the way it is
With a guy like me

I tremble at your touch
I know I shouldn't
But that's the way it is

I want you oh-so much
I know I shouldn't
But that's the way it is

I can see so clearly
That we are worlds apart
But, oh, when you are near me
I can't see beyond my heart

I worship at your shrine
You said I shouldn't
But that's the way it is

I begged you to be mine
I said I wouldn't
But that's the way it is

I'll love you forever
Though it may never be
But that's the way it is
With people like you and me

But when you are near me

I can't see beyond my heart

I worship at your shrine
You said I shouldn't

But that's the way it is


I begged you to be mine
I said I wouldn't

But that's the way it is


I love you forever
Though it may never be

But that's the way it is

With a guy like me
