Rocco Deluca & The Burden – When You Learn To Sing lyrics

A father can give you his words
But words are just symbols for things.
And after he's gone
That's when you learn to sing.

A mother can give you her breast
But soon that's all she'll bring.
And when she's left
That's when you learn to sing.

People live this life.
I know we lie and deceive.
It's learned that I'm blind.
I just wanted
To believe.

And when your love grabs your arm
And whispers the sweetest of lies
And all those around you, they wonder
How can you've been surprised.
It's written in her eyes
That hope is a dangerous thing.
Nightingale, you stagger and fail
Is that how you've learned how to sing?

People live this life.
I know you lie and deceive.
I'm not so blind.
I just wanted...

People live the world.
I know you hurt and deceive.
I'm not so blind.
I just wanted
And I want, and I want
To believe.

And I want to believe. [x7]
And I just wanted...
