"The Way It Is" as written by and Dodson/garrett....
Steve married Judy
And then they had two kids
The girl looked like her momma
And the boy looked just like him

The bells and the time and the daily crime seemed to drip away the bomb
Steve felt he was missing that, and got tired of hanging home
He came home late from work and just stood by the bed
Judy asked him why, he just passed and said

The way it isn't always easy, the way it isn't always fair
Now just because the way things are don't mean that I don't care
Now I've found someone who loves me
You know the feelings that I miss
But it's not the way I planned it
That's just the way it is

Steve picks up the children, every other Saturday
Tries to play the part time dad and make it all okay
Sea sauce and the hot dogs and the dripping ice cream cones
Sunday comes before they know, it's time to take them home
He doesn't have the answers lookin' in their teary eyes
He just tries to be strong and in his own way apologize

The way it isn't always easy, the way it isn't always fair
Now just because the way things are don't mean that I don't care
Know I'll always love you and I promise you'll be missed
But it's not the way I planned it
That's just the way it is

Steve steamed a romance, Steve ride into the rocks
He swallowed up all his pride and gave Judy's door a hug
Said I caused you pain with my selfish games
And the chances all I want
Judy just sluggard him and said I'm tired of hanging home
I cried for you, I cried for us and now I'm thinking about me
I don't quite know, how to tell you Steve

The way it isn't always easy, the way it isn't always fair
Now just because the way things are don't mean that I don't care
Well I've found someone who loves me, and is wonderful with kids
Though it's not the way I planned it
Steve I hope you understand it
That's just the way it is
Way it is
