That's The Way It Is

This song is by Ella Fitzgerald and appears on the album Rhythm & Romance (1997).

I tremble at your touch,
I know I shouldn't,
But that's the way it is.

I want you oh so much.
I know I shouldn't,
But that's the way it is.

I can see so clearly.
That we are worlds apart,
But when you are near me,
I can't see beyond my heart.

I worship at your shrine.
You said I shouldn't,
But that's the way it is.

I begged you to be mine.
I said I wouldn't,
But that's the way it is.

I love you forever.
Though it may never be,
But that's the way it is,
With a guy like me.

I tremble at your touch.
I know I shouldn't,
But that's the way it is.

I want you oh so much.
I know I shouldn't,
But that's the way it is.

I can see so clearly,
That we are worlds apart.
But oh when you are near me,
I can't see beyond my heart.

I worship at your shrine.
You said I shouldn't,
But that's the way it is.

I begged you to be mine.
I said I wouldn't,
But that's the way it is.

I'll love you forever,
Though it may never be,
But that's the way it is,
With people like you and me.
