Live And Learn (Galahad)

We had it good in the eighties Everything coming up roses We were drowning in success Only dealing with the best Really couldn't care about the rest They meant nothing to us Porsche 911, penthouse over the Thames We had everything we desired But the bubble had to burst Unless we gave out first We never thought it was an option We live and learn Even the brightest burn We live and learn Each of us has our turn We rage and scorn Don't even know we are born We live and learn Even the brightest burn Sure enough the big bang came We were finally out of the game Dizzy heights that we had scaled Proved too much - we'd finally failed Nothing left but rubble and dust But now it all seems like A perfect blessing in disguise A learning experience To which we are now wise We live and learn Even the brightest burn We live and learn Each of us has our turn We rage and scorn Don't even know we are born We live and learn Even the brightest burn But now I've got all in a better perspective Now I'm back, Jiving in the real world I've got the love of a famIly and friends Self-respect and happiness Nothing more, nothing less It's all that matters to me.....
