Funny The Way It Is – DMB

Lying in the park
On a beautiful day
Sunshine in the grass
And the children play
Sirens passing
Fire engine red
Someone’s house is burning down
On a day like this

Evening comes
And we’re hanging out
On the front step
And a car goes by
With the windows rolled down
That War song is playing
“Why Can’t We Be Friends”
Someone is screaming and crying
In the apartment upstairs

Funny the way it is
If you think about it
Somebody’s going hungry
Someone else is eating out
Funny the way it is
Not right or wrong
Somebody’s heart is broken
It becomes your favorite song

The way your mouth feels
In your lover’s kiss
Like a pretty bird on a breeze
Or water to a fish
Bomb blast brings the building
Crashing to the floor
Hear the laughter
While the children play war

Funny the way it is
If you think about it
One kid walks ten miles to school
Another’s droppin’ out
Funny the way it is
Not right or wrong
A soldier’s last breath
His baby’s being born

Standing on a bridge
Watch the watter passing underneath
It must have been much harder
When there was no bridge just water
Now the world is small
Compared to how it used to be
With mountains and oceans and
Winters and rivers and stars

Cross the sky a jet plane
So far out of my reach
Is there someone up there
Looking down on me
Boy chase the bird
So close but every time
He never catch her
But he can’t stop trying

Funny the way it is
If you think about it
One kid walks ten miles to school
Another’s droppin’ out
Funny the way it is
Not right or wrong
Soldier’s last breath
His baby’s being born
Funny the way it is
Not right or wrong
Somebody’s broken heart
Becomes your favorite song
Funny the way it is
If you think about it
One kid walks
Ten miles to school
Another’s droppin’ out

Standing on a bridge
Watch the water passing
Underneath
It must have been much harder
When there was no bridge
Just water
Now the world is small
Compared to how it used to be
With mountains and oceans
And winters and rivers and stars
