~Have To Happen~
Written By: The Engineer

I can still remember like it was yesterday
meeting my first best friend by the schoolyard gate
and how badly it hurt when I had to move away
knowing that the it really was the end

(Chorus)

Why do these things have to happen
How can love so true leave us feeling blues
Is there any point at all in even trying
When all we ever seem to do is lose?
They say things are supposed to be this way
That this is all a part of God's great plan
and to cherish the memories I had with them
so I'll remember when I see them all again.

A cold rain falls all throughout the drive
I drove all night so I could make it there in time
The hospital machines are barely thing keeping him alive
I knelt down close and took my fathers hand in mine

He smiled at me though he was almost too weak to say
Son I'm glad you came can you stay with me awhile
I held onto his hand tight, but dawn still took him away
But he told me he loved me, that had always been his style

(Chorus)

Why do these things have to happen
How can love so true leave us feeling blues
Is there any point at all in even trying
When all we ever seem to do is lose?
They say things are supposed to be this way
That this is all a part of God's great plan
and to cherish the memories I had with them
so I'll remember when I see them all again.

[Bridge]

I hug and kiss my wife and together we stand
and my little girl holds on tightly to my hand
I think of all those I've loved, lost and still around
it seems there are some answers that I have found

(Chorus)

Why do these things have to happen
How can love so true leave us feeling blues
Is there any point at all in even trying
When all we ever seem to do is lose?
Now I think things are supposed to be this way
And that this is all part of God's great plan
and I'll cherish every memory I make with those I love
Because I know that one day I'll see them all again.
