The Way That It Goes

And the way that it goes
While you’re dreaming your dreams
You gotta keep on your toes
If you know what I mean
And when the ceiling is on the floor
And you can’t seem to find the door
And the telephone rings
That’s just the way that it goes

And while you’re making your plans
And you’re scheming your schemes
Just remember that life isn’t all that it seems
When you’re willing to risk it all
And the closing of Winter calls
Don’t expect an early Spring

Because the truth is you never know
When the grass will turn green
And if the season is extra long
You’re gonna need lots of seed
You’re gonna need lots of seed
You’re gonna need lots of seed
‘Cause that’s the way that it goes

Seasons come and seasons go
Life goes on and on, you know you know
It’s what we do while we’re here
That matters when we go
‘Cause that’s the way that it goes
That’s the way that it goes

So when you follow your heart
You gotta keep up your chin
It’s the road that we’re on
Not the place where it ends
And there’s always another way
And there’s always a Summer’s day
And Fall to come again

Because the truth is we never know
When the grass will turn green
And if the season is extra long
You’re gonna need lots of seed

‘Cause the truth is you never know
When the grass will turn green
And if the season is extra long
Gonna need lots of seed
Gonna need lots of seed
Gonna need lots of seed

‘Cause that’s the way that it goes
That’s the way that it goes
That’s the way that it goes
You’re gonna need lots of seed
Gonna need lots of seed
