Lessons Lyrics

(Hold onto love tightly, honey, it may never come back)
(Baby, you were so right for me, don’t you ever ask that)
(Hold onto love tightly, honey, it may never come back)
(Baby, you were so right for me, don’t you ever ask that)

Her heart was still bereft and all, sick and tired of steppin’ on
Shine, my darling, never leave the light
I hate to see you skeptical, hugs that never helped at all
Things that I’ve accepted in this life
Loss was unacceptable, wish we coulda kept it all
I’ve learned in love and death we don’t decide
So sing until it fills the halls, sing until the curtain falls
Jealous of the ocean till those eyes

It’s not easy to forget how I loved you
But I really don’t want anybody else
I’d give anything to see those eyes
I won’t forget the lesson that I learned that night
It’s not easy to forget how I loved you
But I really don’t want anybody else
I’d give anything to see those eyes
I won’t forget the lesson that I learned that night

(Hold onto love tightly, honey, it may never come back) Oh
(Baby, you were so right for me, don’t you ever ask that) Oh
(Hold onto love tightly, honey, it may never come back) Oh-ooh
(Baby, you were so right for me, don’t you ever ask that)

There was never gonna be a right time
So I should leave before I lose the sunlight
I cannot keep your spirit pinned down
If it was working, would’ve known it by now
But I hope your life is beautiful, a story like a musical
Standing ovation every night
Just never let them kill your soul, I’m never gonna let you fall
My promises get stronger over time

It’s not easy to forget how I loved you
But I really don’t want anybody else
I’d give anything to see those eyes
I won’t forget the lesson that I learned that night
It’s not easy to forget how I loved you
But I really don’t want anybody else
I’d give anything to see those eyes
I won’t forget the lesson that I learned that night

(Hold onto love tightly, honey, it may never come back) Oh
(Baby, you were so right for me, don’t you ever ask that) Oh
(Hold onto love tightly, honey, it may never come back) Oh-ooh
(Baby, you were so right for me, don’t you ever ask that)

(Easy to forget how I loved you, easier than anything else)
(Easy to forget how I loved you, easier than anything else)

Share your love
