Happy Rhodes
How It Should Be

Happy has performed this song live a few times, but the recorded version has only appeared on a German CD release of Many Worlds Are Born Tonight.


How It Should Be

I don't understand
Any of the reasons
But I'm gonna be here
Picking up the pieces

There will never be
Any reciprocity
And I don't care

See, this is how it should be

This, knowing I'm the
Only one it pleases
But I'm gonna be here
Picking up the pieces

If there has to be a fall
I will take the shock
And I don't care

See, this is how it should be

Maybe I'll never know
When the black patch came
All I really know is
You're not quite the same
As me

There's a cloud undone
Waiting over your horizon
I'm not a god you know

All I can do is watch the show

I don't understand any of the reasons
but I'm gonna be here picking up the pieces
There will never be any reciprocity
And I don't care

See, this is how it should be

This knowing I'm the only one it pleases
But I'm gonna be here picking up the pieces

If there has to be a fall
I will take the shock
And I don't care

See, this is how it should be

If only I could only go back now
To the point of origin
Oh the hell of being linear

There's a big black cloud undone
Waiting over your horizon
I'm not a god you know...

All I can do is watch the show

I don't understand any of the reasons
But I'm gonna be here picking up the pieces
There will never be any reciprocity
And I don't care

See, this is how it should be

This knowing I'm the only one it pleases
But I'm gonna be here picking up the pieces.

If there has to be a fall
I will take the shock
And I don't care

(....more chorus)

Say, this is how it should be

Never understand

I will be there picking up the pieces

I'm the only one

Picking up the pieces

I don't understand any of the reasons
But I'm gonna be here picking up the pieces
There will never be any reciprocity

And I don't care

1996 Happy Rhodes
