That's Not The way
Chris Hillman / Michael Woody


It was easy back in our little town
No responsibility
We had the world in the palm of our hands
So young and wild and free

Young lovers we were gone and run away
And our parents would never agree
And they said
That's not the way it's supposed to be
That's not the way it's supposed to be

Running down the highway in the middle of the night
We surely had it made
Wasn't long before we had our first fight
Almost threw it away

I took one look at her point of view
I got so mad I couldn't see
And I said
That's not the way it's supposed to be
That's not the way it's supposed to be

Oh talk to me and make it last
Feels like we had to grow up fast
It scares me when life gets so real
That's not the way it's supposed to feel

That's not the way it's supposed to be
That's not the way it's supposed to be

Things don't always go like they're planned
Some just disappear
We're still together in the shifting sand
After all of these years

Yeah I can still kick and scream all night
When we disagree, I know, I know
That's not the way it's supposed to be
That's not the way it's supposed to be

Oh talk to me and make it last
Everybody's got to grow up fast
It still scares me when life gets so real
That's not the way it's supposed to feel

No Mmm that's not the way
That's not the way
No, no, no, no, no
That's not the way
That's not the way it's supposed to be
