lyrics

The Way It Should Be

Here’s to the way it should be
Peace, love, and understanding
And giving up unrequited love
To making friends, here’s to happy ends


Here’s to the way it should be
Love for you and loving for me
And not fading away the American way
Of getting loud, here’s to burning out


When you look at me across a kiss
Your face a stream of sentiment
The tide turns back the apocalypse
The way it should be is the way it is


Here’s to the way it should be
Tea for two under shady trees
And to falling on your face on the dance floor in
the fray
To glass and beer, here’s to hearty cheer


When you look at me across a kiss
Your face a stream of sentiment
The tide turns back the apocalypse
The way it should be is the way it is
