Electric light orchestra.
By Sam and Glen Guthrie
The way life's meant to be
I think your supposed to put a capo on but i don't know which fret
G for 12 beats
Well I came a long way to be here today and
I left you so long on this avenue...
And here I stand in the strangest land not
Knowing what to say or do...
As I gaze around at these strangers in town I
guess the only stranger is me...
And I wonder, yes I wonder... is this the
way life's meant to be...
Although it's only a day since I was taken away and left
standing here looking in wonder...
Oh the crowd at my feet maybe it's just the old street but
every thing that I Know lies under...
And when I see what they've done to this place that was
home, shame is all that I feel... Ohhh
F G C G Am
Too late too late to cry the people say
F G C
Too late for you too late for me...
F G C G
You've come so far, nah you know ev'ry thing my
Love can see the one that's out my way-----
Bass solo; G, C, D, G
As I wonder around this wreck of a town where people
never speak aloud... with it's ivory towers and it's plastic
flowers I wish I was back in 1981
Just to see your face in stead of this place now I know what
you mean to me. Ohhhh
Through oh la la's G, C, D, G, C
And I wonder, yes I wonder wonder wonder wonder is this
the way life's meant to be. Ohhhhhhh
Is this the way life's meant to be mmmmm
Is this the way life's meant to be, I wanna know now
Is this the way life's meant to be.
