Liner Notes: 

I started out thinking I was going to write something funny but it turned into this. I tried to keep some parts light and some parts more heavy... I hope that works.

Collaboration welcome

Lyrics: 

V1
I should have let it cool way down
before taking a really big bite

I should have turned off the phone
rather than talking through the night

I should have the read words twice
before pushing the button to send

I shouldn’t have been so gullible
believing all that was said .....

C
these are lessons learned the hard way
they are lessons not to forget
some lessons will leave scars
some are filled with regrets

they are lessons learned the hard way
lessons of yesterday....
and lessons to remember...
today

V2
I shouldn’t have touched down below
after chopping hot peppers

I shouldn’t have been so quick to trust
claims that they didn’t love her

I should have looked for more paper
before sitting down to do my thing

I should have searched my soul deeper
before taking off my wedding ring ....

C
these are lessons learned the hard way
they are lessons not to forget
some lessons will leave scars
some are filled with regrets

they are lessons learned the hard way
lessons of yesterday....
and lessons to remember...
today

B
some life lessons are big
and some life lessons are small
our lives would be better
if we learned the first time
from them all...

C
these are lessons learned the hard way
they are lessons not to forget
some lessons will leave scars
some are filled with regrets

they are lessons learned the hard way
lessons of yesterday....
and lessons to remember...
today

Whoa! Wasn't expecting the narrative to unfold the way it did! Impactful lyrics, Liz. It gave me pause to think about a few things regarding learning tough lessons. You brought it all to the forefront with this one. Very well done!

haha, there are some very funny regrets in there mixed in with the more poignant ones. The peppers one made me laugh out loud.
