So Goes Love - Lyrics by Monkees


Lyrics
by Gerry Goffin & Carole King
Girl, this is goodbye for us,I'm afraid there's no two ways about it,
Now you say you need my love,
But you'll just have to learn to live without it.
So goes love,
Don't try to understand it,
Oh, so goes love,
It never goes the way you planned it.
When you meant the world to me,
That's the time you said you didn't want me,
You played around in front of me,
Yeah, you did everything you could to taunt me.
So goes love,
Don't try to understand it,
Oh, so goes love,
And, when it dies, you can't disguise it.
It's been said you've made your bed
And now you have to lie in it,
There's no denying it's a shame,
But there's really no one else for you to blame.
Oh, so goes love,
Don't try to understand it,
Oh, so goes love,
It never goes the way you planned it.
