Lesson Learned Lyrics

by Brendan Benson

Forget what you see
And what you thought was true
It's not really me
Speaking to you

Forget how you feel
Forget all your dreams
'Cause nothing is real
It's not how it seems

Forget what you've heard
And all that was said
The lines get blurred
It's all in your head

Forget what is right
Forget who you are
When you see the light
It's no longer a star

And we'll chalk it up to a lesson learned
And hopefully by now your senses have returned
And I guess it's back to the drawing board
To reevaluate the situation and put strength to complication
And to wait for sanity to be restored

Forget what you see
And what you think is true
It's not really me
Speaking to you

And we'll chalk it up to a lesson learned
And hopefully by now your senses have returned
And I guess it's back to the drawing board
To recreate the conversation with no lack of communication
It can't wait anymore for sanity to be restored
