Doesnt Have To Be That Way  Misc. Christmas

There's a [Bm7]storm brewing out on the [A]open sea[Bm7]    [A]

[Bm7]Sweeping its way here to [A]you and me [Bm7]    [A]

But all the [Bm]lights are out and the streets are [A]dark
And there's a [Bm]soul without a fire trying to [A]find a spark
And this [Bm]heartbreak season it's [A]leaving its mark on [E]me

But it doesn't have to be that [B]way [D]  [E]

It's not the way that it has to [B]be  [D]  [E]
It's coming over the walls and I'm [B]drowning in it [D]can't you se[E]e
It's not the way that it has to b[B]e   [E]
Doesn't have to be that [B]way [A]
Black night sitting heavy all around
I got a mind full of heartaches and hand me downs
I got a freight train screaming inside my head
That says you can't find love in a stranger's bed
And my mouth is full of all the words that I wish I had said

[D]It's s[A]o much [G]harder now
[D]That the blues [A]skies have gone [G]away
[D]I wi[A]sh I [G]had just one more [F#M]day  [Em]   [Dm]   [A]
Whiskey like water flowing down a drain
And I'm wasted as a candle in a hurricane
But you can't stop something that's this far gone
Goodbyes are easier than I was wrongs
And suicide ain't a matter of degree
