You see, I don't like thunder
I can't stand the rain
And the wind kept coming strong
It swept me off my feet again
As the days were getting darker the night got so long
Another reason to remind myself that life gets sometimes rough

There's a world outside this window
Listen to my words
It's no place for bargain or soft types
Many fall off as well
And don't be a blind fool if love comes along
It'll swallow and spit you out just like it did to your mom

So don't build a bridge if you can't stand on it
Don't talk of love as you invented it
Don't say I told you so - it hurts
That's the way it goes
Don't walk the storm if you're afraid of it
Don't pick a fight if you can't handle it
Stand up straight and learn to live with it
It's life
That's the way it goes

You see, it makes no difference whatever you do
As long as you find happiness you'll always find a way through
And don't marry the first girl that comes along
Oh, I know you'll get disappointed
Take it from someone who knows

Don't build a bridge if you can't stand on it
Don't talk of love as you invented it
Don't say I told you so - it hurts
And that's the way it goes
Don't walk the storm if you're afraid of it
Don't pick a fight if you can't handle it
Stand up straight and learn to live with it
It's life
That's the way it goes

You should have seen me a long time ago
Living my glory days in the sun
And if you can't stand it that I tell you, boy
You'll find it out for yourself
I am only here to support you
Just like a mother is supposed to do

Don't build a bridge if you can't stand on it
Don't talk of love as you invented it
Don't say I told you so - it hurts
That's the way it goes
Don't walk the storm if you're afraid of it
Don't pick a fight if you can't handle it
Stand up straight and learn to live with it
It's life
And that's the way it goes
