"That's Life"

Words & Music by James Nihan


When you met him the stars aligned
And the romance novel in your mind
Went number one in the New York Times
It was an overnight sensation
But kismet, fate and destiny
Somehow they just didn't agree
With what you thought was meant to be
With all your expectations

Chorus:
That's life
Being what it is
Nothing that it does
Is something that it does at you
That's life
And when you hurt like this
You're suffering because
You're wounded by a point of view

Life's not fair and you've been cursed
In this great big whole wide universe
Have you ever seen anyone who's got it worse?
You're the biggest victim
Your glass half empty; now your bed is too
You're dying to say you were born to lose
When it comes to men, well, I guess it's true
You sure know how to pick 'em

(Repeat Chorus)

You can judge this thing till judgment day
Thinking somebody just threw you away
And listen to that sad violin play
While you're crying on my shoulder
Don't you know you're the master of
Believing in hell or believing in love?
You can fall like a stone or fly like a dove
It's in the eyes of the beholder

(Repeat Chorus)

That's life
And when you hurt like this
You're suffering because
You're wounded by a point of view
