HARD WAY TO LEARN

I should have walked away
When I lost faith
But I knew deep inside it was no disgrace
You see, sometimes in life 
You have to know your place
And it's a hard way to learn

I thought I was in control
And all I had was safe
But there was no way I could know
That the risk was too great
You see, sometimes life takes you
Where you don't wanna go
And it's a hard way to learn

It burns you up inside
There is no truth without lies
It takes your soul away
'Cos it's a hard way to learn

I watched the world go by
From outer space
But there's nowhere left to hide
In such a lonely place
You see, sometimes you just have to
Know your place
And it's a hard way to learn

I'd swim an ocean but I fear Id drown
Just to escape from this place I'm bound
Nobody told me just how hard
I would hit the ground
If I could leave, if I could only leave
I would leave right now

It's a hard way to learn
