Lyrics

Lessons

Now it's true my mama told me

That I write too many sad songs

But when you figure it out

When the truth comes out

You do what you need to get along

So when you can step back

Check the facts and relax

For what will be will be

Some lessons we learn the hard way

And on this one we all agree

That sometimes it ain't right

And sometimes it ain't fair

By the time you think you've got it figured out

You realize you ain't gone nowhere

Well you can sit and stew

And wonder what to do

Or you can just kick back and get high

Sometimes a little love

Is all we need to get by

Now there's a pill to keep you happy

And a pill to fall asleep

But where's the pill that kills the pain

From all the secrets that you keep

It's always good until it isn't

And when it isn't good no more

That's when we are reminded

Of the lessons we learned before

That sometimes it ain't right

And sometimes it ain't fair

By the time you think you've got it figured out

You realize you ain't gone nowhere

Well you can sit and stew

And wonder what to do

Or you can just kick back and get high

Sometimes a little love

Is all we need to get by
