Christopher Cross – Been There Done That lyrics

Words and Music by Christopher Cross and Dennis Lambert

You've seen my face
Hey don't you know my name
It wasn't all that long ago I had my fifteen minutes of fame
If it was you caught in a crazy game
Would you still look as good standing in the rain

Whatever gets you through the night
Take it from me -- it's gonna be alright

Been there done that
Been there -- then somebody takes you back
Been there done that
So hard, hard to avoid the trap

They break your heart -- why do we let them in
The drug is strong but the will is weak
We make the same mistakes again
There comes a time we all gotta rise above
Look inside and redefine just what it is we want from love

Been there done that
Been there -- still working my way back
Been there done that
So hard, hard to avoid the trap

And when you feel strong enough to face up to it
You're gonna do just fine
