lesson lyrics – alexander webb

it’s just the sound
of my name on your lips, i can’t stop it
it’s come around
again and again oh i know it
but i’ll learn that lesson
on expectation again

no it’s not that i am wondering believe me i know
it it’s just my mind
can’t stop all these feelings from growing
i’m hoping someday
that you might need me again

it’s that lesson of love
i’ve heard it so many times
but now i’m making it mine, i’m
finally learning to let you go

4am, you call me i hear you crying
i hate that sound
like something inside me’s dying
i’d swim an ocean
to take those
tears from your eyes

and every time
i think of you,
can’t help but miss it
800 miles,
believe me oh i hate this distance
every inch between is
is another reason to cry

it’s that lesson of love
i’ve heard it so many times
but now i’m making it mine, i’m finally
learning to let you go

i probably should
tell you i’m over these feelings
but i never could
lie to you, oh it’s no secret
i’m sorry if these
words are not what you need

i just don’t want to hide
i thought you should know the truth
how this love of
mine forever it belongs to you
but please don’t go running
cause it’s asking
nothing of you

it’s that, lesson of love
i’ve heard it so many times
but now i’m making it mine, i’m finally
learning to let you go
[repeats 2 more times? i think]
