"Life As It Is" as written by and John Kander Fred Ebb....
For now I'll just push my feelings aside
Not to worry it'll be alright
Now I'll just rest from the world that it here
And what it has for me

For now I'll just push my feelings aside
Not to worry it'll be alright
Now I'll just rest from the world that it here
And what it has for me

I know what you want
I know what you need
But I can't give it
I can't give it

Yea, you walked away
Yea, now turn and look at me
That's okay I said it I'll say it again
You want it right now
Its alright I know everything's okay
While you're here with me

Yes I know it
So answer me right now
I'm so sorry
I'm so sorry

We'll find our own way out
So take my hand
Decide our own way
Just you and me now

Yes I know it, right now

that's okay I said it I'll say it again
You want it right now
Its alright I know everything's okay
While you're here with me

Falling inside this time
Falling inside
You want it right now
Don't walk away
I'm here today

Falling inside this time
Falling inside
You want it right now
Don't walk away
But I'm here today

I know what you want
I know what you need
But I can't give it
I can't give it

Yeah, you walked away
Yeah, now turn and look at me
That's okay I said it I'll say it again
You want it right now
Its alright I know everything's okay
While you're here with me
