and so it goes lyrics – roberta flack

we ran into her just by chance;
i saw it in a single glance
my oldest friend,
your new romance
must i remember?

you couldn’t run;
she couldn’t hide
she dropped her eyes,
you turned aside
you didn’t want to hurt my pride,
but you knew that…

love is a rush of wild wind;
the scent of a summer rose
a whistle blowing on a distant track
and when it goes, it goes

i know that tale i’ve heard it told
how bruises reach down to the soul
a love once warm, turns icy cold
and i know that

love is a rush of wild wind;
the scent of a sumemr rose
a whistle blowing on a distant track
and when it goes, it goes

take your heart where it longs to be
i won’t bind you to a memory
i know if i wait,
it will happen to me oh ho”
