Honor Bright – There's A Lesson To Be Learned Here lyrics

I never made you a promise that I didn't keep.
Maybe I kept things hidden,
Maybe I played a little too close to the chest.
You know you do the same, you keep the walls up like
You're keeping something secret, something safe.
But I'm not having it, I figured you out
I had you figured out from the start.

You gotta know when to show and when to fold,
But I'm telling you this game is getting old
Maybe he's a bad bet, oh baby I'm your baddest bet.
Now you're too late and I'm gone like the tears he'll kiss away.
When you realize I'm never coming home again.

These miles are the markings on this bedroom wall
Showing you're every bit the dreamer you deny yourself to be
But that's what I always loved the most.
You just push it away, sweep it under the rug.
So the company you keep, and you keep it well,
Won't know about the company you kept with me.

I am the boy your parents warned you about.
Don't bring me home, Don't bring me home.
Give me two guesses what you're into tonight
But I only need one. I only ever needed one.
Give me two guesses what you're into tonight
But I only need one. I only ever needed one.
