Learning How To Live

Here I’m standing
In these brand new clothes of mine
Still not understanding
How I never felt more naked than this time
Is foolish hearts or brilliant minds
That keep us putting ourselves up on the line
Just keep telling myself it’s fine
It’s fine

And all I wanna be
Is right in front of me
But all I can see
Is how to live carelessly

So let’s just take it back
To the start
Because lovin’ life was easy
But it’s learning how to live that’s the hardest part
Our we shouting cross the great divide
Just in hopes that something still makes us feel alive
But I’m still alive
And it’s fine


So take it slow
And take heart
Don’t let it overload
Cause learning how to live is the hardest part
