Lessons Learned

[audio:CarrieUnderwood-LessonsLearned.mp3]

I got a call at 7am this morning. It was from a friend whom I haven’t seen for almost three years (he was asking for Ben’s num). At one point I did hv a crush on this guy. After talking after a few minutes, he brought up how we used to lepak2 together before and all the silly, stupid things we did.

Then got me thinking about how I was 3 years ago. Young, naive, a small town girl just moved to the big city – no friends, new place. That year was actually a fun, topsy-turvy, up and down year.

I learned a lot of things but also did a few things that could have been handled or done better. It was depressing to look back at those negative things and feel such regrets. But, a dear friend of mine once said, ‘dont look back at the things you did wrong and say that you regret doing it. Instead, think of it as an experience to do things right the next time around’. Following her advice was the way that I ‘got over’ those bad experiences with the promise to do much better the next time.

p/s: Babe, i know you’re hurting. I know that sometimes the future might look bleak and that you have no friends and not as much fun as we have here. But, as cliché as it sound, there is always a silver lining behind the clouds. I cant imagine how hard life can be for you so far away from home, but hang in there. *huggles* >:D<

Lessons Learned

There’s some things that I regret,
Some words I wish had gone unsaid,
Some starts,
That had some bitter endings,
Been some bad times I’ve been through,
Damage I cannot undo,
Some things,
I wish I could do all all over again,
But it don’t really matter,
Life gets that much harder,
It makes you that much stronger,
Oh, some pages turned,
Some bridges burned,
But there were,
Lessons learned.

[Chorus:]
And every tear that had to fall from my eyes,
Everyday I wondered how I’d get through the night,
Every change, life has thrown me,
I’m thankful, for every break in my heart,
I’m grateful, for every scar,
Some pages turned,
Some bridges burned,
But there were lessons learned.

There’s mistakes that I have made,
Some chances I just threw away,
Some roads,
I never should’ve taken,
Been some signs I didn’t see,
Hearts that I hurt needlessly,
Some wounds,
That I wish I could have one more chance to mend,
But it don’t make no difference,
The past can’t be rewritten,
You get the life you’re given,
Oh, some pages turned,
Some bridges burned,
But there were,
Lessons learned.

(Chorus)

And all the things that break you,
Are all the things that make you strong,
You can’t change the past,
Cause it’s gone,
And you just gotta move on,
Because it’s all,
Lessons learned.
