Ain't That Just The Way

By Barbie Benton

RealAudio File

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 woulda taken
was some time.

You know he always seems to be there when I stumble,
and when mountains got too steep for me to climb.
And it tears me up to think I never touched him,
'cause all it woulda taken was some time.

Ain't that just the way that life goes down, down, down, down.
Moving way too fast or much too slow.
Getting up, getting high, getting down, getting no, no, nowhere.
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.

Ain't that just the way that life goes down, down, down, down.
Moving way too fast or much too slow.
Getting up, getting high, getting down, getting no, no, nowhere.
Not getting into someone I should know.
