That Ain't The Way

Story Behind The Song

I watched a girl that I was falling in love with as she was drawn like a magnet back to the abusive relationship she had just ran away from. I saw my mother do the same thing as I was growing up. Wow. I just made an important connection. Thanks, Broadjam!

Lyrics

Aw, geez, here we go?

Time and time and again, Can?t seem to get it right
Don?t wanna see the end, but it?s always in sight
I want to be your friend, want you to hold me tight
But time and time and again, I learn to say goodbye
Don?t say goodbye

I don?t want you to go away
That ain?t the way that it ends on TV
I may be better off anyway
But that ain?t the way that my life has been so far

Time and time and again, I hide my heart away
And if I don?t think of then, it?s not so bad today
This time I understand what makes you feel this way
But time and time and again I?ve got the price to pay
Don?t make me pay


I don?t want you to go away
That ain?t the way that it ends on TV
I may be better off anyway
But that ain?t the way that my life has been so far

Now that you?re free you can be with who you want to
But you don?t have me, and I didn?t want to let you go

Time and time and again I?ve seen love take its toll
And I might let my heart bend, but that heartbreak shit gets old
Would have been nice to spend more time in from the cold
But time and time and again another story?s told
Don?t let this go?.
