"Oh Well, I'll Never Learn" as written by and Stephen/morrissey Street....
Looking up at the sign
It said, "Please keep away"
And so in I ran
You see

I'll never learn
Oh, I'll never learn
I'll never learn

Chapter one again
Here I go again
I found a fountain of youth
And I fell in
How could I ever win?

I'll never learn
I'll never learn
I'll never learn
Why should I mind?
Why should I care?
I'll never learn
I'll never learn

    General CommentIn the end what does it matter anyway? I guess that is what I get from this song. You learn, or didn't... same difference, so just jump in...

    General CommentThis song is absolutely beautiful/haunting. I guess this song is about pushing boundaries and purposely not learning from your mistakes...because it makes life more interesting.

    General CommentThe protagonist feels that whatever happens in their life, be it good or bad, is a total accident.

    General CommentI absolutely adore this song.

    "I found a fountain of youth
    And I fell in"

    This line kills me. It insinuates a character (likely Morrissey) that accidentally found eternal youth and seems somewhat sullen about it. This sentiment is actually echoed by a later song: In The Future When All's Well

    "Living longer than I had intended
    Something must have gone...right!"
