All day long he was fighting for you And he didn′t even know your name Young men come and young men go

But life goes on just the same And I don't know why Why do we keep holding on I don′t know why Pretending to be, oh, so strong Oh, why Is there something I don't know Or something very wrong with you and me Or maybe That's the way it is That′s the way it is They′ve been waiting for word to come down They've been waiting for you night and day They won′t wait any longer for you It may already be too late And I don't know why Why do we keep holding on I don′t know why Pretending to be, oh, so strong Oh why Is there something I don't know Or something very wrong with you and me Or maybe That′s the way it is That's just the way it is You see the dying, you feel the pain What have you got to say If we agree that we can disagree We could stop all of this today It's been your life for as long as you can remember But you cannot fight no more You must want to look your son in the eyes When he asks you what you did it for ′Cause all day long he was fighting for you And he didn′t even know your name Young men come and young men go But life goes on just the same And I don't know why Why do we keep holding on I don′t know why Pretending to be, oh, so strong Oh, why Is there something no one told me Or something very wrong with you and me Or maybe That's the way it is (That′s the way) There's nothing I can do That′s just the way it is Oh (That's the way) That's just the way it is That′s just the way it is There′s nothing I can do That's just the way it is That′s just the way it is (That's the way) (That′s the way) (That's the way)
