      Lyrics for Jewel - "Sometimes It Be That Way"

      Night with its shattered teeth
      Attempts to speak
      My pen is present but
      Courage left via the sink
      And I'm sorry
      I snuck up on you
      From behind
      I'm sorry not all
      My love letters did rhyme
      And I'm sorry that
      Jesus died for my sins
      And I swear to God
      It won't happen again
      And I'm sorry
      If it was my swerve that
      Tempted you to sway
      Oh well
      Sometimes it be that way
      And Romeo was
      A very nice man
      He said
      "Jewel, I don't think
      You quite understand"
      And I'm sorry if you had
      To explain it like this
      I'm sorry I was a point
      You were destined to miss
      And I'm sorry
      I spoke to you irreverently
      Down in the hollow
      By the old olive tree
      And I'm sorry
      If my heart breaking
      Ruined your day
      Oh well
      Sometimes It be that way

      I said
      "Oh well, I got nothing
      Left to sell
      This love was a bell that
      Rang unheard in the air
      I was bound to find out
      That you didn't care
      Oh well
      Sometimes it be that way

      And Aphrodite with
      Her neon lamp
      Kissed Neptune
      They put her face
      On a stamp
      And I'm sorry
      I used it to mail
      A letter to you
      I'm sorry I'm glue and
      The rest bounces off of you
      And I'm sorry not even
      This jet's metal wings
      Could get across
      These simple things
      And I'm sorry
      If I ever sang
      Your name in vain
      Oh well
      Sometimes it be that way

      And Goldilocks
      Well she knew three bears
      They all ate oatmeal
      And tiptoed upstairs
      And I'm sorry
      I never got to
      Find you like this
      Sleeping like a baby
      And swaddled in bliss
      And I'm sorry for
      All the times
      I forgot to imply something
      In between the lines
      And I'm sorry
      If my heart breaking
      Ruined your day
      Oh well
      Sometimes it be that way

      I said
      "Oh well, I got nothing
      Left to sell
      This love was a bell that
      Rang unheard in the air
      I was bound to find out
      That you didn't care
      Oh well
      Sometimes it be that way

      And shadow's long fingers
      They dance on the wall
      Electricity chases
      Its tail in the hall
      And I'm sorry
      If my arms to you
      Were just empty rooms
      I'm sorry
      I never could comfort you
      And I'm sorry
      St. Petersburg is
      A miserable town
      And I'm sorry
      If I am bringing you down
      And I'm sorry
      If I caused you pain
      Oh well
      Sometimes it be that way

      And flame licks the air
      With its silver tongue
      Night has many hands
      But I have just one
      And I'm sorry
      I walked in on you
      Unexpectedly
      I'm sorry
      I never served you
      Camomile's tea
      And I'm sorry
      I didn't always have a match
      That could start
      A fire big enough
      For your heart to catch
      And I'm sorry
      If it was my swerve that
      Tempted you to sway
      Oh well
      Sometimes it be that way
