​It Is What It Is

This song is by Bonnie McKee.

Open the paper
Turn it to the center
Trying to forget but I always remember
Close that door
Suddenly it's over
Now you are my thorn when you used to be my clover

I could go out to the movies
It'd just bring me down
I know I have to settle for seeing you around
I guess that I could take it if I just smile and fake it
I'm sinking into the ground

You were my sparrow
Singing my song
Now you're an arrow
Piercing my heart
I'm feeling so empty
I don't know what I'm doing
But I gotta keep moving
This is right now

Cause baby with you I'm fascinated
And when I'm alone it's you I miss
And baby it's you, our love has faded
So now I'm letting go

Cause it is what it is
It is what it is
There's nothing I can do
Cause it is what it is
It is what it is
It is what it is
I wish it wasn't true
But it is what it is

Couldn't take the pressure
Couldn't last forever
Yeah, I saw it when I looked in your eyes
And now there's nothing to recover
It's broken down the center
I gotta leave these traces behind

You were my anchor
Holding me down
Now you're a stranger
All over town
I'm feeling so empty
I don't know what I'm doing
But I gotta keep moving
Cause this is right now

'Cause baby with you I'm fascinated
And when I'm alone it's you I miss
And baby it's you, our love has faded
So now I'm letting go

Cause it is what it is
It is what it is
There's nothing I can do
Cause it is what it is
It is what it is
It is what it is
I wish it wasn't true
But it is what it is

I'm not afraid
To go and do this on my own
'Cause if I had stayed
I would still be feeling alone
And I know down in my heart
This is the way that it should be
I just got to keep reminding myself

Cause it is what it is
It is what it is
There's nothing I can do
Cause it is what it is
It is what it is
It is what it is
I wish it wasn't true
But it is what it is
Cause it is what it is
It is what it is
There's nothing I can do
Cause it is what it is
It is what it is
It is what it is
I wish it wasn't true
But it is what it is
Cause it is what it is
It is what it is
There's nothing I can do
Cause it is what it is
It is what it is
It is what it is
I wish it wasn't true
But it is what it is
Cause it is what it is
It is what it is
There's nothing I can do
Cause it is what it is
It is what it is
It is what it is
I wish it wasn't true
But it is what it is
