Happen This Way


Words and Music by James Durst 
© 1988 PhoeniXongs ASCAP
I knew that when it happened, it would happen this way
I lie awake at night and do my dreaminí in the day
If I had a lot of money, Iíd give it all away
Just to hear her say, "Iím with you all the way"
And I knew it would happen this way

And I knew that when it happened, it could happen like this
A kind of gauge at this stage of my metamorphosis
When I can go by what I sense without intense analysis
So leaping from the precipice into the great abyss
I knew it could happen this way

And you know that when it happens, it can happen in a minute
And if love appears at all, youíll fall right in it
You canít be a hero if youíve got no heroine
It is so hard to begin it when you try to discipline it
Let it happen
Let it happen

And you know that when it happens, it can happen one way
On a lovely little planet in the Milky Way
When we say to one another, "Letís not fight, letís play!"
And co-create a brighter day where itís just us, not we and they
And you know it can happen this way
