integrate problem

I'm having some issues understanding this...  Following works as

s is the variable in time.  a is a parameter.

Integrate[1/(s + a), s]

gives Log[a + s]

But the following gives the integral itself.

Integrate[1/(s[t] + a), t]

If the function that needs to be integrated w.r.t time is 1/(s[t] +
a), how do I accomplish that?  It seems like if integrate it wrt to s
[t] it will work.

Integrate[1/(s[t] + a), s[t]]

But does that sound about right?

Any thoughts appreciated.
