Long Hard Lesson Learned

This song is by John Anderson and appears on the album Paradise (1996) and on the compilation Greatest Hits (1996).

A one way ticket is all we need
No return, no guarantee
Straight ahead and don't look back
This train is on a one way track

Oh, life is a precious thing
Don't waste it all worrying
Time that's lost can't be returned
It's another long hard lesson learned

Teach your children not to hate
Hope they learn 'fore it's too late
Get rid of the bad laws and keep the good
Save the oceans and the woods

When will we all understand
That the future's in our hands
Once it's lost it can't be returned
It's another long hard lesson learned

I can see the writing on the wall
Open up your eyes y'all and heed the call
When you play with fire you're bound to get burned
Another long hard lesson learned

Another long hard lesson learned
Another long hard lesson learned
Another long hard lesson learned
