lyrics

There's a young man down the hall,
he's sleeping with his jawbone broken, its busted wide open.
Taking a swing at the world it done knocked him on the ground.
Now he's sleeping in his bed all alone.

But every now and then when he wants you as a friend,
you come running right by his side.
Might be ashamed to say you know, you'll be on your way you know.
Holding that little boy's hand…

And on the way up they will all fill your cup.
That's the way it goes.
And when you fall down they'll be reaching out with their frowns,
That's the way it goes.
There's always someone saying you won't belong.
That's the way it goes.

Just look them in the eyes and tell them what you are.
That's the way it goes.


That man up on the wall, you don't know him at all.
He's responsible for all you're gonna know.
There will come a day someone's gonna tear him off the wall.
I hope you're the one that's gonna say, "What's the deal here?!"

Cuz every now and then when this world falls to an end,
I promise I'll hold you tight.
Might be ashamed to say that the world's that way, you know.
No, my life's a little journey…

And on the way up they will all fill your cup.
That's the way it goes.
And when you fall down they'll be reaching out with their frowns,
That's the way it goes.
There's always someone saying you won't belong.
That's the way it goes.

Just look them in the eyes and tell them what you are.
That's the way it goes.
