Thomas Rhett The Way Things Go Lyrics

You know when you’re young

And you know everything

The sky is the limit

And the grass is a little more green

Don’t matter where you are

Yeah I coulda swore back when I was 15

I’d go to college and get my business degree

I never made it that far

I got a big ol’ wrench in my plans

And put this guitar in my hands

So much for crystal balls

And wishing on stars

as you watchin’ them fall to the ground

yeah you can dream big

or you can dream small

but it all comes down

to the luck of the draw so I’ve found

Cause it’s gonna rain

as soon as you wash your car

and as sure as you go on and give up

your heart a curve gets thrown

That’s the way things go

Yeah I would’ve tattooed her name on my arm

If you woulda asked me

I would’ve bet the whole dang farm

and more on us

So much for her being my meant to be

She changed her mind like the wind

and the joke was on me

She left me in the dust

If she hadn’t left my heart black and blue

I would’ve never found you

So much for crystal balls

And wishing on stars

as you watchin’ them fall to the ground

yeah you can dream big

or you can dream small

but it all comes down

to the luck of the draw so I’ve found

Cause it’s gonna rain

as soon as you wash your car

and as sure as you go on and give up

your heart a curve gets thrown

That’s the way things go

You’ll never know if you took the right fork in the road

until you get where you’re going and it all unfolds

So much for crystal balls

And wishing on stars

as you watchin’ them fall to the ground

yeah you can dream big

or you can dream small

but it all comes down

to the luck of the draw so I’ve found

Cause it’s gonna rain

as soon as you wash your car

and as sure as you go on and give up

your heart a curve gets thrown

That’s the way things go
