Not Supposed To Be That Way – Willie Nelson

It’s not supposed to be that way
You’re supposed to know I love you
But it don’t matter anyway
If I can’t be there to console you.

Like the other little children
You’re gonna dream a dream or two
But be careful what you’re dreamin’
Soon your dreams’ll be dreamin’ you.

It’s not supposed to be that way
You’re supposed to know I love you
But it don’t matter anyway
If I can’t be there to control you.

When you go out to play this evenin’
Play with fireflies till they’re gone
Then you’ll rush to meet your lover
Play with real fire til the dawn.
