Doesn't Have To Be This Way Lyrics - Alison Krauss

Review The Song (1)



It's a good thing I don't need you to stay

You smell like moonlight and early morning rain
Pray til a fool but surrender to your pain
Or find a cure for your decay

[Chorus:]
You're at your best with an ache in your chest
And that worn out old song that you play
Only Jesus and you who long to teach us
Should know and be left to betray

I don't know the answer but I know who to blame
You can choose the dancer if you could choose the flame
I think you'll find they're one in the same
It doesn't have to be this way

[Chorus]

I don't know the answer but I know who to blame
Pray til a fool but surrender to your pain

It's a good thing I don't need you to stay

Sometimes I wonder where you're coming from
When you roll in like thunder just to turn around and run
It's a good thing I don't need you to stay
It doesn't have to be this way

Alison has an incredible knack for picking songs that can grab your gut and delivering them to us. This song by R.L Castleman is no exception, and with Jerry Douglas and the rest of Union Station assisting it is one of my current favorites. It's the kind of song that you wake up in the middle of night and realize it is playing in your mind.
