"That's The Way It Is" as written by Martin Max, Andreas Mikael Carlsson and Kristian Carl Marcus Lundin....
I can read your mind and I know your story
I see what you're going through
It's an uphill climb, and I'm feeling sorry
But I know it will come to you

Don't surrender 'cause you can win
In this thing called love

When you want it the most there's no easy way out
When you're ready to go and your heart's left in doubt
Don't give up on your faith
Love comes to those who believe it
And that's the way it is

When you question me for a simple answer
I don't know what to say, no
But it's plain to see, if you stick together
You're gonna find a way, yeah

So don't surrender 'cause you can win
In this thing called love

When you want it the most there's no easy way out
When you're ready to go and your heart's left in doubt
Don't give up on your faith
Love comes to those who believe it
And that's the way it is

When life is empty with no tomorrow
And loneliness starts to call
Baby, don't worry, forget your sorrow
'Cause love's gonna conquer it all, all

When you want it the most there's no easy way out
When you're ready to go and your heart's left in doubt
Don't give up on your faith
Love comes to those who believe it
And that's the way it is

When you want it the most there's no easy way out
When you're ready to go and your heart's left in doubt
Don't give up on your faith
Love comes to those who believe it
And that's the way it is

That's the way it is
That's the way it is, babe
Don't give up on your faith
Love comes to those who believe it
And that's the way it is

    General CommentYou need counseling elnino if you are taking your break-up fustrations out on this song. It happens to be my favorite song of all time and I keep it fresh by not overplaying it too much. The beat of this song is by far the best I have ever heard, especially the first few seconds. The lyrics show that true love can be difficult to capture and that it takes a period of suffering to know who your true love is.

    General Commentum... she didn't write 'my heart will go on'.

    no, i don't recall any of her songs being written by her.

    and everyone must admit that she does have at least a strong voice, if not a beautiful one.

    General Comment*celine dion doesn't writer her songs*

    sorry, but i believe it's important to know that. so here, again:

    CELINE DION DOESN'T WRITE HER SONGS.

    I'm not trying to be a pain or anything, and I'm sorry if I sound mean, but I just want everyone to know that.

    General CommentSo she doesn't write her own songs? Oh boo fucking hoo.
    Who really gives a crap? She has a good voice. And to those who say "She can't sing shit", a little jealous maybe? You probably wouldn't know talent if it came up and bit you in the fucking ass. If she didn't have a good voice to begin with. She wouldn't be where she is today.
    This is one of my favourite songs that she sings. Not only was it the last one she did before taking a break, it's one that seems to have had the most influence. It seems to be the only upbeat one did she had so far in her career, so that's why its become a favourite of mine.

    General CommentDon't give up on true love. It'll always conquer. Sometimes it isn't easy. When you meet the person you're supposed to be with, you'll know. Love may test you. Love may fail you. Love may break you. But don't give up. Walk by faith, not by sight.
