Rod Stewart – Hard Lesson To Learn lyrics

I drifted into the notion
That you were looking for me
I told myself that devotion
Would flow from your heart to me

When I looked into your eyes
Still no reflection did I see
Of love light glowing within there
That I hoped there would be

And it's a hard lesson to learn my friend
A hard lesson to learn
Sometimes you gonna get what you want
Times you gonna get burned

I took a chance on emotion
Washing my heart out to see
A single wave on the ocean
You feel so distant from me
And there's a shadow dark upon your smile
A sadness living in your eyes
Storm clouds rolling in an outofdaught
Guess I been living alive

And it's a hard lesson to learn my friend
Hard lesson to learn
Sometimes you gonna get what you want
Sometimes you gonna get burned
Sometimes you gonna get what you want
Sometimes you gonna get burned

And it's a hard lesson to learn my friends
Hard lesson to learn
Sometimes you gonna get what you want
Sometimes you gonna get burned

I drifted into the notion
That you were looking for me
I told myself that devotion
Would flow from your heart to me
But when I looked into your beautiful eyes
Still no reflection did I see
Of love light glowing within there
That I kind o hoped there would be

And it's a hard lesson to learn my friends
Hard lesson to learn
Sometimes you gonna get what you want
Sometimes you gonna get burned
Sometimes you gonna get what you want
Sometimes you gonna get burned
Sometimes you gonna get what you want
Sometimes you gonna get burned
Sometimes you gonna get what you want
Sometimes you gonna get burned

Yeah, yeah,yeah
Yeah, yeah oh

Sometimes you gonna get what you want
Sometimes you gonna get burned
