Like It Ought To Be

I may get around
I may laugh a lot
Now you'd think that I'd be happy with the life I got

Nobody knows
Nobody sees
And nobody really knows the inside of me

I may seem secure
I could have it made
You might think you see a lucky man who made the grade
Nobody knows
What dreams I see
Ain't nobody really sure just who they wanna be

But everybody has a place and time
A chance to live
A need to find
We all got somethin' that we care about
I propose you find it out

It's not in a book
Or a magazine
Or the stars who guide our fortune on the silver screen

Nobody knows
It's up to me
Ain't nobody who can say it
Like it ought to be

I see my future at the rainbow's end
Happy hours
Timeless friends
And if I ever chance to find my way
Rest assured
I will stay

You may see your life
As a compromise
You may live to find the promise dancin' in your eyes

Nobody knows
It's meant to be
Let the magic of the moment
Say it all to me
