John Anderson – Long Hard Lesson Learned lyrics

A one way ticket is all we need
No return, no guarantee
Straight ahead and don抰 look back
This train is on a one way track

Oh, oh, oh,
Life is a precious thing
Don抰 waste it all worrying

Time that抯 lost
Can抰 be returned
It抯 another long hared lesson learned

Teach your children not to hate
Hope they learn before it抯 too late
To get rid of the bad laws, and keep the good
Save the oceans and the woods

When will we all understand
That the future抯 in our hands

Once it抯 lost, it can抰 be returned
It抯 another long hard lesson learned

I can see the writing on the wall
Open up your eyes and heed the call

When you play with fire, you抮e bound to get burned
Another long hard lesson learned
