Learning the Hard Way Lyrics

by Susan Tedeschi

Leave me alone
I need to be on my own
Tired of you thinkin' you're right
Telling me I'm always wrong

I don't know but one things for sure
The sooner I see you walkin' out that door
The better I'll be
Oh, the better I'll be

So, stop bringin' me down
You can't find somethin' nice to say don't say it at all
Let me make my own mistakes
I'll beat your love the hard way
Oh, the hard way, oh, the hard way

I know it sounds funny
But I know you just can't help yourself
'Cause in your mind you just can't stand by
And let me talk

How can you tell me all the ins and outs
You don't know where I've been or what I'm all about
Or what I'm feelin'
I've got to live to believe, yeah

So, stop bringin' me down
You can't find somethin' nice to say don't say it at all
Let me make my own mistakes
I'll beat your love the hard way
Oh, the hard way

How can you tell me all the ins and outs
You don't know where I've been or what I'm all about
Or what I'm feelin'
I've got to live to believe, yeah

So, stop bringin' me down
You can't find somethin' nice to say don't say it at all
Let me make my own mistakes
I'll beat your love the hard way

So, stop bringin' me down
You can't find somethin' nice to say don't say it at all
Let me make my own mistakes
I'll beat your love the hard way
Oh, the hard way, oh, the hard way

Ooh, yeah, oh, somebody now, oh, the hard way
Oh, the hard way, oh, yes, oh, yeah
I've got to learn the hard way
Oh, somebody, oh, the hard way, oh, yeah
