"Learnt My Lesson Well" as written by Nicholas Hodgson, Charles Richard Wilson, Nicholas Baines, James Rix and Andrew Robert White....
We went to the youth club and we looked out of place.
I didn't know where to look
So I, looked at your face.
But you were a boxing champ, and I was a weakling.
You didn't give me a chance,
You gave me a beating.
And I thank you very much that you did.

And as the time went by we stayed out of trouble,
Before I could realize my age had doubled.
The man I became is a tragic bore,
And he's not a boxing champ anymore.
If there's one thing I've learnt it's to run away,
At least I enjoy what I do today.
And I thank you very much that I do.

    General CommentI have to disagree with sidewalk. I love this album!

    But anyways, some of these lyrics don't make sense like 'you could be a nurse' ????? but I think the song is basically about a guy with money problems. Or maybe he robbed a bank. Lol.

    General CommentOkay Okay, "you could be a nurse" makes perfect sense, imo. You just don't get the subtlety, do you? ;D

    General Comment"I'm just waiting for
    The man to come with all my things
    And I'm just waiting for
    Another man to take it all"

    that part makes me think of baliffs.. probably about money and how hes acting with people
    "i cant help being like this.."

    duno though, good song

    Song MeaningI think this song is about moving in at your partners' place and it doesn't work out that well, so you move out again.

    General CommentThe new album sucks but i think this is the best song of it. I like the "And it's not hard to tell .. i've learnt my lesson well".
