Live And Learn

The Suicide King

Listen and I’ll tell a tale or two of love gone sour
Of attempts to rectify events done past the midnight hour
Trying hard to clarify them things that should be left behind
Once their time to come has passed on by

Cuz lately I’ve been thinking bout a world I’d left behind
Trying hard to recreate the things that once were mind
Sifting through them folded hands, and trying hard to understand
Just what I’d won, if I’d lost the time

Sometimes you’ve gotta live and learn
Before the past comes back to haunt
So make sure them bridges that you burn
They’re ones you never want to cross
Cuz it’s too long a windy road
To end up right back at the start
So grab them matches and we’ll start the flames
That brings a light back to my heart

Well Susan was a widowed woman, left with naught a child
She had auburn hair that made my pappy sway
Then Katie was a a cutie pie, she played that old guitar
And we would make sweet love and music night and day

And old Niki had a wild streak, and when she had to go
There weren’t nothing I could say to make her stay
Sure I’ve seen some curvy roads, and I’ve had some broken hearts
But I left my share of them along the way

Sometimes you’ve gotta live and learn
Before the past comes back to haunt
So make sure them bridges that you burn
They’re ones you never want to cross
Cuz it’s too long a windy road
To end up right back at the start
So grab them matches and we’ll start the flames
That brings a light back to them darkened nooks and crannies of my heart my heart
