"Learning Lines" as written by and Jack Penate....
When things have been said so many times
You repeat back as if you're learning lines
It?s so easy to fall into this trap
'cause once you get there, you can't get back

As I get older I wonder what I?ll do
When I make my own choices and they say it's up to you
'cause right now I'm feeling safe, it's all the same
But in a few years if I'm nowhere, it's me to blame, ohh, ohh, ohh, ooh

Picture frame, books and shelves, not afraid by myself
Metal strings, glowing tubes, Bessie Smith sings the blues
Key and lock, dirty clothes, misunderstood poets prose
Dreaming with open minds, repeating back, learning lines
Learning lines, learning lines, learning lines, learning lines

People around seem to have their heads screwed on
But dreaming?s become my life, I'm finding it hard to move on
It?d be so easy if I wanted to charter survey
Knowing my future down to a year or a day, ohh, ohh, ohh, ooh

Picture frame, books and shelves, not afraid by myself
Metal strings, glowing tubes, Bessie Smith sings the blues
Key and lock, dirty clothes, misunderstood poets prose
Dreaming with open minds, repeating back, learning lines
Learning lines, learning lines, learning lines, learning lines
Ohh, ohh, ohh, ohh, ooh

Picture frame, books and shelves, not afraid by myself
Metal strings, glowing tubes, Bessie Smith sings the blues
Key and lock, dirty clothes, misunderstood poets prose
Dreaming with open minds, repeating back, learning lines
Learning lines, learning lines, learning lines

    General CommentTo me, this song is about growing old. When you're young you're forever dreaming, and that's okay, because you're safe - you're protected by your family, and you don't have to earn your way yourself. Nothing is expected of you. However as the eternal saying goes 'all dreamers must wake up',
    not that I believe in this, but y'know.
