The Way It Is

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

I can't help but wonder..all I know is..I'm not looking to see or want to see who can hurt who the most. I don't ever want to be the reason why you're hurting, only...the reason why you're feeling better.

I'm sorry, you're not always going to get the best of me. I won't make false promises. All I can say is, you will always have all of me Holly.
