FOR THE WAYS OF THE WORLD

For the ways of the world keep on tearing me down.
For the ways of the world keep on making me frown,
for the ways of the world are a turnin' me 'round,
turnin' me 'round 'way from you.

On the day that you said you were going away.
On the day that you said you were leaving to stay.
On the day that you said you were going away
I said to your name "I love you!"

For the ways of the world keep on tearing me down.
For the ways of the world keep on making me frown,
for the ways of the world are a turnin' me 'round,
turnin' me 'round 'way from you.

Time moves forward without hesitation, always in motion, never in rhyme.
Time moves forward without hesitation, but love goes on.
