Haven't Learned a Thing
- 6 Views
I have failed and I have fallen, cried till I was bawling Been down so low my face was on the tiles Where the cold against my lips, hollow like your kiss Was empty as a North Dakota mile I tried leaving without losing but the hardest part was choosing Which direction I would run when I was free And the only thing I?ve learned is that I haven?t learned a thing I?ve drank one too many glasses, I?ve been bruised and I?ve been battered By mistakes I never bothered to avoid And friends who tried to offer advice I never followed Grew tired of watching all that I?d destroyed So I faked my best foot forward, while sneaking backwards toward The center where the truth wouldn?t sting And the only thing I?ve learned is that I haven?t learned a thing We live we yearn we flame we burn we cry We crawl we run we reach to touch the sky And though our wings are made of wax We try to fly to close to the light Trying to get it right You stood there like a stoic and I felt so claustrophobic Wishing you?d give me a reason not to leave Your silence closed in tighter and I felt like an outsider In the home that was my haven all those years But I knew that I was certain, like the dropping of a curtain, When I saw you?d taken off that ring Guess the only thing I?ve learned is that I haven?t learned a thing Chorus I have failed and I have fallen, cried till I was crawling Been running for so long that I believed That the thin ice where I landed was steadier than where I?d been And now I?m not sure what?s in front of me But in the falling and the flying and the living and the dying Is how we carve our names inside this dream The only thing I?ve learned is that I haven?t learned a thing Maybe the only thing to learn is that you never learn a thing
