The Way It Is

This is the lyric to a country song I wrote, I won't sing it myself but it's about my family. Hope you enjoy

 The Way It Is

 
(Verse 1)
If the wick’s still burnin’ and wax is meltin’
Then I still got a secret that I ain’t telling
But don’t be worried it’ll do us all some good
If the lights ain’t quite off but sure are dim
Just be patient I’ll soon let you in 
Don’t you fret, one day we’re gonna win
 
(Chorus)
Cause I light a little candle for all my sins
For my hopes and dreams, family and friends
For the things in life that mean the most to me
I’ll light ‘em up till the room catches fire
I’m just like a phoenix, the flames take me higher
I’ll go higher and higher till this family gets what it needs
We need a little more hope, a little more love
To once in a while thank God above
That we still have each other cause we’re gonna make it big
I’ll have it no other way, that’s just the way it is
 
(Verse 2)
If I close my door and don’t say nothing
Doesn’t mean you’re unwelcome, means I’m cookin’ up something
Something that’s gonna put us on the map
You gotta be shut out to be let in
I’m in there saying dear God, forgive my sins
But I’ll soon open up and let you all come through
 
(Chorus)
But right now I light a little candle for all my sins
For my hopes and dreams, family and friends
For the things in life that mean the most to me
I’ll light ‘em up till the room catches fire
I’m just like a phoenix, the flames take me higher
I’ll go higher and higher till this family gets what it needs
We need a little more hope, a little more love
To once in a while thank God above
That we still have each other cause we’re gonna make it big
I’ll have it no other way, that’s just the way it is
 
(Bridge)
You and me know better than life 
That we’ve got gifts that you just couldn’t buy
And we’re gonna share our gifts, some day, with the world
You and me know more than anyone else
That we gotta think about more than ourselves
Then we’ll not just make it big, we’ll make it big and make it last
 
(Chorus)
So would you light a little candle for all your sins
For your hopes and dreams, family and friends
For the things in life that mean the most to you
Would you light ‘em up till the world catches fire
Cause like a phoenix you’ll only rise higher
You’ll go higher and higher till this family has what it needs
We’ll have brand new hopes and lots of love
We’ll never forget to thank God above
That we still have each other and sure did make it big
Please have it no other way, that’s just the way it is
 
Light a little candle for all our struggles
For the times that were bad we sure gotta love ‘em
Cause without bad times we’d never know what’s good
Would you light ‘em up till your hearts on fire
Cause like a phoenix you’ll just rise higher
Higher and higher till there’s no where left to go
But right back down into the arms of love
From the family you got from the Lord above
You still have each other and that’s as big as it gets
Please have it no other way, that’s just the way it is
The way it is
Please have it no other way, cause that’s just the way it is

Country huh? Not your usual style but I would love to hear it one day... Maybe you could sing it just once to let me in on the melody lol... Great lyrics!

These don't seem like typical country lyrics, but that's a good thing because typical country lyrics are trash. I hope there is a fiddle in the band :-)
