Just when you learn your lesson,
They kick you out of school,
For the things that you don't know.
Then when it starts rainin',
You find holes in your shoes.
That's The Way It Always Goes.

(Chorus)
Oh! Your highlights hit rock bottom,
And your headlines are old news!
Your insights are outdated,
And you're starting to turn blue!
You wonder if you can make it,
And if anybody knows!
That's The Way It Always Goes.

You start your calculation.
You put two down with two,
And encounter the unknown.
It alters the equation,
And you don't know what to do.
That's The Way It Always Goes.

(Repeat Chorus)

(Bridge)
That's The Way It Always Goes.
So you, Pull everything together,
Tear everything apart!
Your head's light as a feather,
But you've got a heavy heart!
You wonder if you can fake it,
And whether it will show!
That's The Way It Always Goes.
That's The Way It Always Goes.
That's The Way It Always Goes.
That's The Way It Always Goes.

A two-chord wonder! The riff came and the two chords were all I needed, apparently. I never noticed until just now that it was only two. A memorable piece, with hook factor galore!
