Some Lessons
Melody Gardot Lyrics


Well I'm buckled up inside
It's a miracle that I'm alive
I do not think I can survive
On bread and wine alone
To think that I could have fallen
A centimeter to the left
Would not be here to see the sunset
Or have myself a time

Well why do the hands of time
So easily unwind

Some lessons we learn the hard way
Some lessons don't come easy
That's the price we have to pay
Some lessons we learn the hard way
They don't come right off and right easy
That's why they say some lessons learned we learn the hard way

Remember the sound of the pavement
World turned upside down
City streets unlined and empty
Not a soul around
Life goes away in a flash
Right before your eyes
If I think real hard well I reckon I've had some real good times

Well why do the hands of time
So easily unwind

Some lessons we learn the hard way
Some lessons don't come easy
That's the price we have to pay
Some lessons we learn the hard way
They don't come right off and right easy
That's why they say some lessons learned we learn the hard way

Ohh... Well I'm buckled up inside
miracle that I'm alive
do not think I can survive
On bread and wine alone
To think that I could have fallen
A centimeter to the left
Would not be here to see the sunset
Or have myself a time
(refrain)
Well why do the hands... of time............
Soooooooooo easily unwind.......... ummmm
Some lessons we learn the hard way
Some lessons don't come easy
And that's the price we have to pay..ohhh
Some lessons we learn the hard way
They don't come right off and right easy
That's why they say some lessons learned we learn the hard way

Remember the sound of the pavement?
World turned upside down....
City streets unlined and empty
Not a soul around..ooohhh
Life goes away in a flash
Right before your eyes........
If I think real hard well I reckon
I've had some real good times...........

Why do the hands of timeeeeeee...
So---oooh easily unwind? ummmmmmm
Some lessons we learn the hard way
Some lessons don't come easy
And that's the price we have to pay.. ohhh well
Some lessons we learn the hard way
They don't come right off and right easy
That's why they say some lessons learned.... we learn the hard way fa-dah.. fa-dah....

I can relate to this song in ways most people couldn't even imagine. Love it but it gets me teary eyed.

I too was hit by a car at age 19 while riding my BICYCLE. I relate to this song on the same level as Melody. Our injuries were different but just as debilitating. Every song since this song is an inspiration to me!
