That's The Way It Is


I can read your mind
And I know your story
I see what you're going through (yeah)
It's an uphill climb
And I'm feeling sorry
But I know it will come to you
Don't surrender
'Cause you can win
In this thing called love
When you want it the most
There's no easy way out
When you're ready to go
And your heart's left in doubt
Don't give up on your faith
Love comes to those who believe it
And that's the way it is
When you question me
For a simple answer
I don't know what to say (no)
But it's plain to see
If you stick together
You're gonna find the way
So don't surrender
'Cause you can win
In this thing called love


When life is empty
With no tomorrow
And loneliness starts to call
Baby don't worry
Forget your sorrow
'Cause love's gonna conquer it all

My ALL-TIME Favorite Song! It motivates me very well. ^_^
Hope you can sing it in Las Vegas.


Céline you sure made your fans happy with this one!!

I was sad one day and this song came on and it made me happy because that's the way it is!!


I was sitting here tonight letting my son who is 13 hear one of the best voices my ears have ever heard. So i went to see who else, Celine Dion. My son asked me if i thought anybody else in the worlds voice was as good as hers, I told him i really haven't heard any. We listened to this song and he looks at me and says mom, Can i listen to this song everyday before school to get me in a good mood for the day:) Thank you for such a beautiful meaningful song.


All time favourite song.


This song really means a lot to me. I love its meaning and the rhythm it brings to everyone that it makes us feel so alive! I love this song!



I just understood the meaning of this song, and it's just very important to everyone including me. Whatever you face, don't give up your faith and your love. Only then you can forget and live. And that's the way it is!Wink

Among Celine's greatest songs for sure! Another reason to be grateful to you, precious sweet-voiced, lady!

This is one of the songs which I feel as if Ciline sang right to me! Sometimes I kind of get depressed for not loving anybody, and then I always remember this song and this perfect chorus, and that makes me believe that one day I'll find someone!

For almost 2 months I have been feeling depressed that someone who I cared a lot for left me without so much as a goodbye. This song says exactly what I want to hear right now, that loves comes to those who believe it. I do believe in love and I do believe it will come to me. This song is very close to my heart, thanks Celine for such a beautiful, comforting thought.

As a 17 year old girl with cerebral palsy, I am often ridiculed and teased for trying to follow the dreams I have, that others take for granted. I have never been in love, but if you change just one word of this song you will see why this song means so much to me: When you want it the most, there's no easy way out. When you're ready to go and your heart's left in doubt, don't give up on your faith, SUCCESS comes to those who believe it, and that's the way it is. Thanks for lifting my spirits Celine!

This song means a lot to me because I am currently battling depression. The words to this song are comforting, and they give me hope - happiness will come in the end. Anything is possible, you just have to focus on your goals. With this song, I am going to keep battling, and I will succeed in the end.

This song taught me the meaning of life. It taught me to never give up on my faith. It also taught me that even when you have a really bad day, listening to Celine's songs will through the current tough times and prepare you for the good times ahead.

This song emphasizes the fact that one should believe in oneself. It is a real morale booster for me, when I am feeling low. It ignites the fighting spirit in me.

This song is my 'magic mantra.' I listen to it when I'm feeling low and need a morale booster. This song has helped me to bounce back from difficult circumstances. I know that I am not alone when I am feeling down. Thank you, Celine, for lending your voice to this song.

I think that's one of my favorite Celine song... What does it mean to me... it's hard to say. That's a really beautiful song which teaches us that no matter what happens, how bad we feel today, there will always come a sun which will shine and make each day of our life better. "When you want it the most there's no easier way out..." So don't give up and fight for the one you love...

"That's the way it is" has really touched my heart in so many ways. Sometimes when I'm sad, I play the song and it makes me feel good. And when one is in trouble the song will make u not to give up the fight.
