Verse 1

He says that you reap what you sow

But I know the things that I know.

And I know that while it looks so good in theory,

That's not really how it works in reality.

Verse 2

He says karma catches up sooner or later.

But I know, for some it only gets better.

We can only hope that there will be justice someday.

But I really don't see it happening that way.

Chorus

This is how life is, everything's unfair.

The only ones who hurt are the people who care.

And I'm just a small town girl,

And he's just a small town guy.

We're too small to fight against those who do us wrong,

But he tells me to believe fate will, so I could try.

Verse 3

They sealed their hearts in a cold prison.

They make us hurt for no reason.

God, or Universe, or whatever else you call it.

Just watches silently while you take shit.

Chorus

This is how life is, everything's unfair.

The only ones who hurt are the people who care.

And I'm just a small town girl,

And he's just a small town guy.

We're too small to fight against those who do us wrong,

But he tells me to believe fate will, so I could try.

And the evil and the mean,

And the sabotage queen,

Live in luxury, travel from Opera House to Times Square.

Cause this is how life is, everything's unfair.

Bridge

I've learnt long back not to expect justice, ever,

You can either revenge,

Or you can just let go, forgive and forget, move on,

Some people don't change.

Cause that's how life is…

Chorus

This is how life is, everything's unfair.

The only ones who hurt are the people who care.

And I'm just a small town girl (And the evil and the mean)

And he's just a small town guy. (And the sabotage queen)

We're too small to fight against those who do us wrong,

(Live in luxury, travel from Opera House to Times Square)

But he tells me to believe fate will, so I could try.

Cause this is how life is, everything's unfair..

And this is how life is…
