Never been all that close to you.
Startin' to wonder why.
Never a deeper conversation,
We always politely lie.

Cover the silence with the laughter
Like there was nothing there.
Something has happened years ago.
Now you don't seem to care.

And it's been a lonely time
But I could never understand
It's been a long, hard road
I've tried to take it like a man

But take a lesson from me
You can't find love
('Til all is forgiven)
Oh, Take a lesson from me
There's no peace inside

Oh, I'm in need
(Maybe you'll find you needed someone)
Only too proud to admit it
(Who can see past your pride)
I'm disappointed like
(Who understands your disappointments)
I've had enough time to resent it
(In whom you can confide)
I've been accused myself
(Stands with you through the accusations)
Maybe sometimes they're right
(That quickly begin to fly)
I think about all the things
that might have been
(In spite of the things
that might have been)
All those rumours refuse to die
(And rumours refuse to die)

I'm not the only one
That's let it tear me up inside
It's hard to lose those ugly feelings
But if you're takin' time to try

Take a lesson from me
You can't find love
('Til all is forgiven)
Take a lesson from me
Can't keep love
(Can't keep love)
Take a lesson from me
There's no peace inside
('Til all is forgiven)
Take a lesson now
Ain't no easy way

Oh, yeah
(Are you runnin' from a lifetime?)
You runnin' from me?
(Are you lookin' for a lifeline?)
Take a lesson, take a lesson from me!
(God is kind when you're
startin' over on your knees)
Say, all is forgiven, now
(What you find you return,
no one beggin' you please)
No lies, no lies, all is forgiven!
(Give it time, give it time,
think of what it can mean)
No, no, all is forgiven
(I think you'll find a pardon signed
means you're free to come clean)
Oh, think I'm movin' on, ah, oh
I feel it right now
You there ain't no easy way
