Duck and Cover Submit Correct Lyrics

Someone's in the back yard, bangin' on the door
Daddy's gone away, he's comin' back no more
His baby's curled up on a stranger's floor
Mama's thinkin', family dinners weren't too much to ask for

Everybody here's got a story to tell
Everybody's been through their own hell
There's nothin' too special 'bout gettin' hurt
Gettin' over it, that takes the work

'Cause one way or another, all need each other
Nothing's gonna turn out the way you thought it would
But friends and lovers, don't you duck and cover
'Cause everythin' comes out the way it should

Blessed are the humble, blessed are the meek
Blessed are the hungry, blessed are the weak
Blessed are the ones on the other side
Blessed are we for just bein' alive

One day I stopped wantin' anythin' at all
The Heaven's opened up like a waterfall
No use in worryin' 'bout when it ends
Just for now be thankful for what I get

'Cause one way or another, a man's gonna suffer
It makes no difference the way you wanted it
But friends and lovers, don't you duck and cover
'Cause everythin' comes out the way it should, in the end

Seems like life is a palindrome
Cry when you die, cry when you're born
In between, it's all about the ups and downs
Add 'em all together, they cancel each other out

'Cause one way or another, one way or another
Won't get what you wanted, you'll get enough, for sure

'Cause one way or another, winter pays for the summer
Won't get what you wanted, what you got'll be good

Someone's in the back yard, bangin' on the door
Daddy's gone away, he's comin' back no more
His baby's curled up on a stranger's floor
Mama's thinkin', happy endings weren't too much to ask for
