That's How It Goes

Story Behind The Song

I was fed up with my job and I felt trapped. Icouldn't do anything about it (at the time), so I poured my frustration into a metaphorical transposition of the hypothetical circumstance, basically. . .

you need your time
you need your space
I said that I'm
still here just in case
you've always been free
to do as you please
and if you leave me
I'll take sweet memories

That's how it goes
That's how it ends
Like a fork in the road
That comes 'round the bend
But we both know, so let's not pretend
That's how it would go
That's how it would end

So many miles
they twisted and turned
if not for the smiles
I might never have learned
that there could be
such beauty and grace
wrapped so tenderly
in one last embrace


always it ends
things fall apart
but the heart slowly mends
and makes a new start

I've tried to forget
and work through the pain
I even made me a bet
oh, that I'd love again
but like a promise that's broke
or a job that don't pay
like a dream I awoke
but there's not much to say
