Funny the Way It Is - Dave Matthews Band Lyrics

Lying in the park
On a beautiful day
Sun shine in the grass
And the children play
Siren's passing
Fire engine's red
Someone's house is burning down
On a day like this

The evening comes and we're hanging out
On the front step
And a car goes by with the windows rolled down
And that war song is playing "why can't we be friends?"
Someone's screaming and crying in the apartment upstairs

Funny the way it is
And if you think about it
Somebody's going hungry
And 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 a lover's kiss
Like a pretty bird on a breeze
Or water to a fish
But a bomb blast brings the building crashing to the floor
Hear the laughter while the children play war

Funny the way it is
And if you think about it
One kid walks 10 miles to school
While another's dropping out
Funny the way it is
Not right or wrong
On a soldier's last breath
His baby's being born

Standing on a bridge
Watch the water passing under me
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 mountain, and oceans, and winters, and rivers and stars

Watch the sky the jetplanes
So far out of my reach
Is there someone up there looking down on me?
Boy chase a bird
So close but everytime
He never catch her
But he can't stop trying

Funny the way it is
And if you think about it
One kid walks 10 miles to school
While another's dropping out

Funny the way it is
Not right or wrong
On a soldier's last breath
His baby's being born

Funny the way it is
Not right or wrong
Somebody's broken heart
And it becomes your favorite song

Funny the way it is
And if you think about it
One kid walks 10 miles to school
While another's dropping out

Standing on a bridge
Watch the water passing under me
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 mountain, and oceans, and winters, and rivers and stars
