Michael W. Smith — Live And Learn lyrics

[Verse 1]
Never should have tasted
That forbidden fruit
Tell me why do I always do
What I don't want to do
Now, I'm the only reaper
Of the seeds that I sow
And when I walk the field of my stubborn will
It's a hard row to hoe

[Chorus 1]
There's a price for getting smarter
So I pay what I owe
While bridges burn
Let the shadow fall behind me
I am wiser I know
We live and learn

[Hook]
Always living and learning
Always living and learning

[Verse 2]
Is it out of the fire
Back into the pan
Is once enough to let it all sink in
Or will I do it again
A time for understanding
Has now come of age
So I heed the word of the counselor
And the voice of the sage

[Chorus 2]
Try to see the meaning
Read between every line
When pages turn
There'll be no room for explaining
What has been well-defined
We live and learn

[Hook]
Always living and learning
Always living and learning

[Verse 3]
An engaging temptation
Had me doing time
'Cause when it starts a fire under strong desire
We are partners in crime

[Chorus 3]
But hindsight is clearer
I can where I've gone
And never return
It's a new man in the mirror
It's a new freedom song
To live and learn

[Hook]
Always living and learning
Always living and learning
