Dan Fogelberg - The Way It Must Be
 
 
INTRO: F  Bb  F
 
 
Baby, how could I have been so vain 
                                             Bb
To make you feel like you're the only one to blame 
                            F
For all these distances and none of this pain 
 
 
 
Baby, how could I have been so blind 
                                             Bb
To presuppose that your needs were just like mine 
                             F
You've been a prisoner for a long, long time 
 
 
CHORUS:
               C                      Bb
'Cause now you run from me and I will set you free
              F
If that's the way it must be 
 
 
 
I tried so hard to make you part of me 
                                              Bb
That every time I looked at you I thought I'd see 
                              F
Someone that you could never, ever be 
 
 
 
So full of pride, I could not see straight 
                                          Bb
I thought you'd change, if'n I could only wait 
                              F
I see the truth now, but it's much too late 
 
 
CHORUS:
               C                      Bb
'Cause now you run from me and I will set you free
              F
If that's the way it must be 
 
 
BRIDGE:
         Dm                          Bb       F
Oh oh oh oh oh, how'd it ever get so cold and mean 
         Dm                               Bb           C           F  Bb  F
Oh oh oh oh oh, is there nothing left but silence in between 
         Dm                          Bb       F
Oh oh oh oh oh, how'd it ever get so cold and mean 
         Dm                               Bb           C       F
Oh oh oh oh oh, is there nothing left but silence in between 
 
 
 
Baby, how'd we hold on so long 
                                            Bb
To something both of us must have known was wrong 
                               F
We're either fools, or must be terribly strong 
 
 
CHORUS:
               C                      Bb
'Cause now you run from me and I will set you free
              F
If that's the way it must be 
               C                      Bb
'Cause now you run from me and I will set you free
              F
If that's the way it must be 
               C                      Bb
'Cause now you run from me and I will set you free
              F
If that's the way it must be
