It Doesn't Have To Be That Way - Jim Croce

    Snowy nights and Christmas lights
    Icy window panes
    Make me wish that we could be
    Together again
    And the windy winter avenues
    Just don't seem the same
    And the Christmas carols sound like blues
    But the choir is not to blame

    But it doesn't have to be that way
    What we had should never have ended
    And I'll be dropping by today
    'cause we could easily get it together tonight
    It's only right

    Crowded stores, the corner Santa Claus
    Tinseled afternoons
    And the sidewalk bands that play their songs
    Slightly out of tune
    On the windy winter avenues
    There walks a lonely man
    And if I told you who he is
    Well, I think you'd understand


    No, it doesn't ... (Chorus)
