Lyrics :

You may live for me today
Then tomorrow go away
There will be no tears from me
That’s the way it’s got to be
That’s the way it’s got to be

You say you’ll stay by my side
That’s something we can’t decide
We can only wait and see
That’s the way it’s got to be
That’s the way it’s got to be

But for now let’s live and we might find
That our love will be the lasting kind

Love may be like summers rain
Quickly come and gone again
It may last eternally
That’s the way it’s got to be
That’s the way it’s got to be

That’s the way it’s got to be
That’s the way it’s got to be
That’s the way it’s got to be
That’s the way it’s got to be

It’s got to be that way
It’s got to be that way
