Isn't That Always the Way - Lyrics

I made a promise I cannot keep
I wrote this to explain to her

Sara, darling, all on your own
Fearless, lovely, how have you grown?
Rushing away, day after day
Isn't that always the way?

Sara, darling, look what you've done
Somehow, grown up, second to none
Look at those eyes, yearning but wise
What will the poor fellow say?
Isn't that always the way

Come dance with me
Maybe this moment will chance to be
one of those moments in memory
cherished long after the day
fades away

Sara, searching, Sara complete
Headstrong, lifelong, light on your feet
Look how you've grown
I should have known
I only wish you could stay
Isn't that always the way
