Ain't That Just The Way - Lutricia McNeal
 
(Ain't that just the way that life goes
Down, down, down, down
Movin' way too fast or much too slow)
 
(Oooh, Ooo hooh, Ooo hooh, Ooo hooh)
 
He was a very special warm and gentle person
Who put in music in the world and spoken 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)
And when mountains got to 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)
(Woh Hoh Hoh Yeah, Yeah)
 
(Ain't that just the way that life goes
Down, down, down, down
Movin' way too fast or much too slow
Gettin' up, gettin' high, gettin' down
Gettin' no, no, nowhere
But not gettin' 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 nothin'
And (all it would have taken was some time)
(Woh Hoh Hoh Yeah, Yeah)
 
(Ain't that just the way that life goes
Down, down, down, down
Movin' way too fast or much too slow
Gettin' up, gettin' high, gettin' down
Gettin' no, no, nowhere
But not gettin' into someone I should know)
 
(Keys only)
(Ain't that just the way that life goes
Down, down, down, down
Movin' way too fast or much too slow
(Band back in)
Gettin' up, gettin' high, gettin' down
Gettin' no, no, nowhere
But not gettin' into someone I should know)
 
(Gettin' up, gettin' high, gettin' down
Gettin' no, no, nowhere
Gettin' up, gettin' high, gettin' down
Gettin' no, no, nowhere
Gettin' up, gettin' high, gettin' down
Gettin' no, no, nowhere
Gettin' up, gettin' high, gettin' down
Gettin' no, no, nowhere)
