Some Things Are

 

APPEARS ON


He took the kid to see a doctor on the other side of town
Signed in with a nurse and sat down
The boy played with toys on the waiting room floor
He tried to read a paper that he read before

The doctor will see you now is not what that means
It's a smaller room with even less magazines
Where you wait around another hour it seems
Like an hour, Lord it seems like an hour

All the days go by
No real point in wondering why
You can't undo what's done
No matter how hard you try
Some things are the way they are
Cause some things are the way they are
Love will be enough

He met the boy's mama when they were both young
The kid come along and then another two sons
Together they had weathered what hardships came
But this kind of trouble, it wasn't the same

So much seemed to be depending on this
The doctor come in looking down that list
Made a little small talk, stuck the needle in
Drew a little blood and was gone again

The kid cried and pulled close to the old man's side
It was then he realized
It didn't matter

All the days go by
No real point in wondering why
You can't undo what's done
No matter how hard you try
Some things are the way they are
Cause some things are the way they are

The truth of the matter come crashing in
Long before the doctor come back again
That the truth didn't matter whether or not he knew it
True love matters and that's all there is to it
True love matters and that's all there is to it

So when the doctor come back with his glasses pushed low
And said, "We run the test and here's what they show"
He said, "Wait, doc, let me pay you and go
I don't need to know, I don't need to know."

All the days go by
No real point in wondering why
You can't undo what's done
No matter how hard you try
Some things are the way they are
Cause some things are the way they are
Love will be enough
Love will be enough
