"Lessons In Love" as written by and Mark/gould King....
I'm not proud, I was wrong and the truth is hard to take
I felt sure we had enough but our love went overboard
Lifeboat lies lost at sea I've been trying to reach your shore
Waves of doubt keep drowning me

All the dreams that we were building
We never fulfilled them
Could be better, should be better
For lessons in love

For restless eyes, egos burn and the mold is hard to break
Now we've waded in too deep and love is overboard
Heavy hearts token words all the hopes I ever had
Fade like footprints in the sand

All the homes that we were building
We never lived in
Could be better, should be better
Lessons in love

If we lose the time before us
The future will ignore us
We should use it, we could use it, yeah
Lessons in love
Lost without love

Lessons in love
When will you ever learn
Lessons in love
When there's nowhere left to turn

Lessons in love
Don't let your spirit burn
Lessons in love
I'll wait 'till you return

All the dreams that we were building
(Yeah, yeah, yeah)
We never lived them
We could lose it, we should use it
(Lessons in love)
Lessons in love

All the homes that we were building
We never lived in
Could be better
(Could be better)
Should be better
(Yeah, yeah)
Lessons in love

If we lose the time before us
The future will ignore us
We should use it, we could use it
(Good God)
Lessons in love

    General CommentGreat song. "Heavy hearts token words all the hopes I ever had
    Fade like footprints in the sand". Great lyrics and quite true, heavy words for those of us that feel time is passing us by. IMO this song is about a couple whose hopes and dreams were driven out by the harsh reality they're currently living. In other words, reality wins and those dreams literally go to hell.

    General CommentI think the lyrics are pretty easy to understand. An interesting fact about this song (I saw Mark King say this in an interview) is that it was written to be a hit (which the record label, Polydor, wanted). The members of the band had played together in bands in holiday camps on the Isle of Wight, and 'We'll Meet Again' by Vera Lynn always went down well with audiences. They borrowed elements of the chord progression knowing it was proven to be popular.
