I love this song, the lyrics are so fitting for what a lot of us go through on a saily basis.  It always reminds me to be grateful & to remember that everything does turn out the way it should in the end.

Duck & Cover

Someone’s in the backyard banging on the door
Daddy’s gone away he’s coming back no more
His baby’s curled up on a stranger’s floor
Momma’s thinking family dinners weren’t too much to ask for

Everybody here’s got a story to tell
Everybody’s been through their own hell
Nothing too special about getting hurt
But getting over it, now that takes the work

One way or the other we’ll 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 everything turns out the way it should

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

One day I stopped wanting anything at all
The heavens opened up like a waterfall
No use in worrying about when it ends
Just for now be thankful for what I get

One way or another a man’s gonna suffer
Nothing’s gonna turn out the way you wanted it
But friends and lovers don’t you duck and cover
‘Cause everything turns 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 them all together they’ll cancel each other out

One way or another, one way or another
You won’t get what you wanted but you’ll get enough for sure
One way or another, the winter pays for the summer
Won’t get what you wanted but what you got’ll be good

Someone’s in the backyard banging on the door
Daddy’s gone away he’s coming back no more
His baby’s curled up on a stranger’s floor
Momma’s thinking happy endings weren’t too much to ask for
