Strange The Way

Well strange the way it seems
I changed horses in midstream
And it took a while to get back to my pace
Then the stream changed up with me
And I'm broken company
And I hate the way it slides across your face  

I tried to change your mind
Tried to live the way I like
But the years keep slipping off behind my back
And I'm greying in my beard
And I'm finding it hard to hear you
When you ask me if I've ever loved you back  

I did the right thing the wrong way
Tried to take a shortcut to the long way
I did the right thing the wrong way  

So with reasons off I went
Into your winter of discontent
Maybe not the kindest thing I swear I know
Sometimes I lie awake at night
Wishing I could make things right
But that ship sailed and I just watched her go  

I did the right thing the wrong way
Tried to take a shortcut to the long way
I did the right thing the wrong way  

Someday I'll be on a train
Or go out walking in the rain
And I'll see you with a new and better man
And I hope you can forgive and love again  

I did the right thing the wrong way
Tried to take a shortcut to the long way
I did the right thing the wrong way
I did the right thing the wrong way
