"Way of the World" as written by and Victoria Peterson Susan Cowsill....
ere's a mean wind blowin' this way
Everyone thinks it's okay
The common law is lowest of all
So why do we laugh when we watch someone else take a fall.

It's the way of the world
Say a prayer and it all comes true
Cross your heart, hold your breath, touch the wall
You might make it through
Oh lord, please let the landing gears come down
It's a cry in the dark
And you know you don't make a sound
It's the way of the world.

Like a good soldier marking my time
I got my reward, it was mine
Cut off my hair and burned down my home
Sold my voice to the devil
And all I got left was alone.

It's the way of the world
Say a prayer and it all comes true
Cross your heart, hold your breath, touch the wall
You might make it through
Oh lord, please let the landing gears come down
It's a cry in the dark
And you know you don't make a sound
It's the way of the world
It's the way of the world.

What were you expecting
What were you expecting
What were you expecting
What did you have planned.

I know a woman, she's so very small
Has nothing to say so she speaks for us all
Looking for love and karmic relief
An act of contrition heals everything
That's her belief.

It's the way of the world
Say a prayer and it all comes true
Cross your heart, hold your breath, touch the wall
You might make it through
Oh lord, please let the landing gears come down
It's a cry in the dark
And you know you don't make a sound
It's the way of the world
It's the way of the world.

What were you expecting
(it's the way of the world I'll say a prayer for you)
What were you expecting
(it's the way of the world and it'll all come true)
What were you expecting
(it's the way of the world)
It's not what you had planned.
