"Just The Way It Is, Baby" as written by and Phil/wilde Solem....
Do you remember once upon a time
When you were mine
The stars above were bright and new
I pulled them down for you

Just when I fell in love again
You said that all good things must end
Baby, that's just the way it is Baby
Baby, that's just the way it is Baby

I never had a head for solitaire
It's so unfair
That I'd should have my chance and lose
Feel like I've been used to help you

Through another night
You spelled in out in black and white
Baby, that's just the way it is Baby
Baby, that's just the way it is Baby

The tides that had once carried you away
They bring you back again today
Time has washed away my pain
You'll find that things have changed

And disappeared without a trace
You can't get back what you've erased
And I say
Baby, that's just the way it is Baby

That's just the way it is
Baby, that's just the way it is Baby
That's just the way it is

Baby, that's just the way it is Baby
Baby, that's just the way it is Baby
Baby, that's just the way it is Baby
Baby, that's just the way it is Baby
Baby, that's just the way it is Baby
Baby, that's just the way it is Baby

    General Commenthmmm not that I'm aware of... I heard it long back in the early 90's before Friends came out and I kept saying, "I know this song but I don't know who sings it".. then when the Friends theme came out I found it by accident by purchasing the wrong cd...*shrugs*

    General Commentthis song was stuck in my head and i couldn't think of title or artist; the refrain just looped in my head.
    quick search on letssingit.com and came up with Remb's (shock).
    thank fuck for bands who title their works appropriately.

    General CommentThis guy, who has been hurt before, finally is able to love someone again, and then she drops him cold (probably cheated on him). After a long time, she wants to come back to him, but he won't. It's not because he is still hurt, but just because time changed things. "You can't get back what you've erased."

    That's just the way it is.
    That's what she told him, and not it's what he is telling her.
