Life Lessons
Written by Gerry Beckley, ©2019
Found on Five Mile Road.

Summer nights seem to last forever
City lights burnin' up 'til dawn
I can't say how we ever managed
But anyway the history goes on

Hey where did we go wrong?
Life is gonna be short or long
Love was here all along
Smiling from the wings
Some catch and hold on tight
Some last for just one night
It's true, oh yeah it's true

Unaware way back when we got started
I said a prayer hoped it would be strong
My blue jeans they were torn and tattered
In my teens I was searching for the sun

Hey where did we go wrong?
Life is gonna be short or long
Love was here all along
Smiling from the wings
Some catch and hold on tight
Some last for just one night
It's true, oh yeah it's true

Every drop of rain
It's part of the plan
Every step I take
On every grain of sand
There's no doubt
We'll work it out

Hey where did we go wrong?
Life is gonna be short or long
Love was here all along
Smiling from the wings
Some catch and hold on tight
Some last for just one night
It's true, oh yeah it's true, oh

Yeah it's true


Here's a music video with the lyrics.
