Live And Learn Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Way back when I was young
A minute from yesterday
They said to me, son be strong
You're gonna be something someday

They bought me some clothes to wear
They gave me some books to read
Took me to see Santa Claus
Of love I was never in need
But they never said things burn
Or that I would have to live and learn

I'd love to go back and undo
A few things that I have done
I've got a handful of bitter regrets
Like when I betrayed someone
Who helped me when I was down

I was young and dumb at the time
Believe me, I don't feel good
When those days are on my mind

They're gone now, not to return
And we move on trying to live and learn
Raise the shade, look outside
Leave your dreams back in bed

Find your shoes, walk outside
Shake the clouds from your head
Like the morning headline in the newspaper read
It's your turn, it's your turn to live and learn

So that's enough for now
Enough talk about the past
Ice just beyond the gate
We don't have to move too fast

Don't have to pass some test
We don't have to get with the grade
Yesterday's years away
They flicker and then they fade

Raise the shade, look outside
Leave your dreams back in bed
Through the forecast said sunshine
It's raining instead

Like the morning headline
In the newspaper read
It's your turn
It's your turn to live and learn

Find your shoes, walk outside
Shake the clouds from your head
Though the forecast said rain
You've got sunshine instead

Like the morning headline
In the newspaper read
It's your turn
It's your turn to live and learn
