Lyrics:

I’m not proud, I was wrong
And the truth is hard to take
I felt sure we had enough
But our love went overboard

Lifeboat lies lost at sea
I’ve been trying to reach your shore
Waves of doubt
Keep drowning me

All the dreams that we were building
We never fulfilled them
Could be better, should be better, (for)
Lessons in love

For restless eyes, egos burn
And the mood is hard to break
Now we’ve waded in too deep
And love is overboard

Heavy hearts, token words
All the hopes I ever had
Fade like footprints in the sand

All the homes that we were building
We never lived in
Could be better, should be better
Lessons in love

If we lose the time before us
The future will ignore us
We should use it, we could use it, (yeah)
Lessons in love

Lost without love
Lessons in love
When will you ever learn?
Lessons in love
When there’s nowhere left to turn
Lessons in love
Don’t let your spirit burn
Lessons in love
I’ll wait ’til you return

All the dreams that we were building, (yeah)
We never lived them
We could lose it, we should use it (lessons in love)
For lessons in love
All the homes that we were building
We never lived in
Could be better, (could be better) should be better, (yeah)
Lessons in love
If we lose the time before us
The future will ignore us
We should use it, we could use it
(Good God!)
Lessons in love
