The Way It Goes
Lyrics
The Way it Goes by Chris Orchard (copyright)

Now we're all alone we can reflect upon this purpose
We've found a quiet place we can unwind and be less nervous
Sadness drowns the space and here we contemplate the limits of our time
We look into our hearts and try to make a start to calm our troubled minds.

And in the silence love breaks in,
Mends the broken heart again
Heals the mind and soothes the soul
That's the way it goes

I see you disagree, I sense your fear and hesitation
My song belongs to you, I ask for your participation,
I cannot take your pain, I can only share your grief, death confronts us all
Let me take your hand, together we can stand
Together we won't fall

And in the silence love breaks in
Mends the broken heart again
Heals the mind and soothes the soul
That's the way it goes.

As the sunshine in the room, filters through the lace, a tear runs down your face.
Memories will fade, reflections will inspire, shadows in the night, will sometimes make you cry, call me I'll be there

And in the silence love breaks in
Mends the broken heart again
Heals the mind and soothes the soul
That's the way it goes.

And in the silence love breaks in
Mends the broken heart again
Heals the mind and soothes the soul
That's the way it goes.
That's the way it goes.
