You're Always Learning the Hard Way



By R

You hung your hopes
On an aluminum future


And you thought that
You were set.


You didn't know how
 good it was getting


Cause you hadn't
Gotten there yet

You've yet to be as good as your younger sister


But that isn't saying much

You were telling me
'Let's stay in touch"
When you meant
"Let's stay out of touch"



You're always learning the hard way

Hard isn't a great way to learn


You can learn to 
Manage the damage

But it's only
a 25 ¢ return
a 25¢  return

Works for me.


I proved I finally proved it



I always look good to me


Please don't hold perfection against me


I get reality in the 3rd degree.



I luv your lovely indifference


Two felonies
But alas
No arrests

We can meet in the Media library


I'll see if you pass the test



You're always learning the hard way


That's good as
Both of yourselves agree


I can count on you
Giving me good advice

And watch me
Disintegrate for free

Works for me

So fly a kite over Pittsburgh


Let's meet where Point Park points

We'll watch Pittsburgh
Sink into a sink hole


And listen for an "oink"



There's always a way
Out
Of an outhouse

A life lived on the edge


You can go by your
2nd grade feelings


I go by Sister Sledge


You're always learning the hard way


You always look 
Good to me

Forget everything that I've told


That always works for me

Works for me.
