Long Hard Lesson Learned

In the style of

John Anderson

Lyrics

a one-way ticket
is all we need
no return
no guarantee

straight ahead
and don't look back
this train is on
a one-way track

oh life
it's a precious thing
don't waste it all
worrying
time that's lost
can't be returned
it's another long
hard lesson learned

teach your children
not to hate
hope they learn
'fore it's too late

get rid of the bad y'all
and keep the good
save the oceans
and the woods

when will we all
understand
that the future's
in our hands
once it's lost
it can't be returned
it's another long
hard lesson learned

i can see the writing
on the wall
open up your eyes y'all
and heed the call

when you play
with fire you're bound
to get burned
it's another long
hard lesson learned
another long
hard lesson learned
