Ain't That Just the Way

Lyrics: Bruce Belland ASCAP

Music: Stu Phillips ASCAP

He was a very special, warm and gentle person
Who put music in the world and spoke in rhyme
And it hurts me that I never really knew him,
‘Cause all it would have taken was some time.

You know he always seemed to be there when I stumbled
Or when mountains got too steep for me to climb,
And it tears me up to think I never touched him,
‘Cause all it would have taken was some time

Aint that just the way that life goes down, down, down, down
Moving way too fast or much too slow,
Gettin’ up, gettin’ high, gettin’ down,
Gettin’ no, no, nowhere,
But not getting’ into someone I should know,

Now he’s in another place and I can’t reach him,
And I feel as though I’m guilty of a crime,
I took all he had to give and gave him nothing,
And all it would have taken was some time
