The Way It Is (Live)

Lyrics

Doesn't matter who gets the best of who
Or who can hurt who the most, no.
It never was meant for it to be that way,
Never should be that way at all.

Doesn't matter who gets the best of who

DONT READ THIS. YOU WILL BE KISSED ON THE NEAREST POSSIBLE FRIDAY BY THE LOVE IF YOUR LIFE. TOMORROW WILL BE THE BEST DAY OF YOUR LIFE. NOW YOU'VE STARTED READING THIS. DON'T STOP THIS IS SO FREAKY. But if you read this and ignore it you will get bad luck. PUT THIS ON 15 SONGS IN 143 MINUTES. WHEN YOU'RE DONE PRESS THE SPACE BAR AND YOUR CRUSHES NAME APPEAR IN BIG LETTERS ON THE SCREEN THIS IS SO CREEPY CAUSE IT ACTUALLY WORKS

Have seen them so many times spanning over 20 yrs. so down to earth and approachable . Jeff was pushing his son in stroller on Monsters of Rock cruise 2012, regular guys. Such a true song here too. Don't matter who gets the best of who. Let's all just live our lives and not be vindictive too others even if they have wronged us. Only hurt yourself.
