It Is What It Is

It Is What It Is
Music and Lyrics by Stephen Smoke

Verse 1
Give me a hint
Baby, give me a clue
I want to know
If it’s really true

Does it all make sense
Is there a rhyme or a reason
I’m burning up
Baby, I’m freezin’

Chorus 1:
Nobody knows
It’s a great paradox
Nobody sees
In a world run by clocks
So we search for the key
To the locks
On the Magic Box

Verse 2
I take myself with me
Wherever I go
I try to relax
And enjoy the show

But the drama keeps coming
Again and again
(‘Cause) the curtain is falling
But I don’t know when

Chorus 2:
It is what it is
Nothing more, nothing less
Nothing good, nothing bad
Nothing left to confess
Nothing more to add
Or possess
No one left to impress

Verse 3
The past and the future
Now bleed together
Mirrored in a moment
Echoing forever…

I see the wheels
Going round and round
I’m back at the beginning
Feelin’ lost…and found

Chorus 1:
Nobody knows
It’s a great paradox
Nobody sees
In a world run by clocks
So we search for the key
To the locks
On the Magic Box

Repeat Verse 2 and Chorus 2
