"Live & Learn", written by Jun Senoue and Johnny Gioeli, originally appeared as the main theme from Sonic Adventure 2 for the Sega Dreamcast and also featured on that game's vocal themes album "Cuts Unleashed:...
Can you feel life moving through your mind
Looks like it came back for more - yeah yeah yeah
Can you feel time slipping down your spine
You try and try to ignore

But you can hardly swallow
Your fears and pain
And you can't help but follow
And puts you right back where you came

* Live and learn - Hanging on the edge of tomorrow
Live and learn - From the works of yesterday
Live and learn - If you beg or if you borrow
Live and learn - You may never find your way

Can you feel your life tangle you up inside
Now you're facedown on the floor

But you can't save your sorrow
You've paid in trade
And you can't help but follow
And puts you right back where you came

* Repeat

There's a face searching far, so far and wide
There's a place where you dreamed you'd never find
Hold on to what if...
Hold on to what if...

* Repeat x2

    General CommentThis song is actually about when everything around you feels like going to hell, you still got to get back up and don't let it take you in.

    General CommentThis song makes me feel like nothing can stop ypu, and if it does, than all you have to do is try again, just dont screw up the same way you did last time. Like somebody else said, if ebery thing else is going to hell, just learn to live without it. Dont think before you act, jus do it and learn from your mistakes

    General CommentDon't give up on what you set out to achieve by holding on to your past mistakes. Live, learn, and move on. "Hanging on the edge of tomorrow from the works of yesterday." I never realized how imbuing this song was.

    General CommentTruly i have to say, is that this song is Inspiring. A motivating song to "Live and Learn". The title speaks for itself, but the lyrics just give you this feeling to rise off the ground and keep moving on.

    Pretty much this songs says is 'Keep Moving and never give up hope! You'll reach a destination where you're surely find if you just live up your life like no tomorrow'

    I have nothing else to say, except that this song is truly inspiring.

    Live and Learn kids, there's a tomorrow waiting for you

    General CommentDoes anyone know if this song was written for SA2? In the context of the events just before the climax, this was a great song choice for that game.

    The song is about relying on and being strong in yourself, because if you beg or if you borrow, you may never find your way.
