I Can Learn

Lyrics Information

I wish we
were stuck up a tree
then we'd know
it's nicer below

I don't know any lullabys
I don't know how to make you mine
but I can learn
in lonely days long ago
I saw lovers put on a show
well now it's my turn

drive you home
and then wait by the phone
for that call
for a walk in the fall

no harm will come of this
one little midnight kiss
it will not burn
for many lonely days
I feel like a throw away
well now it's my turn

falling down
is no longer around
feeling sun
I'm no longer one
well isn't this fun?

    "'I Can Learn,' [was] written before we did our first album...sometimes there's songs that get put aside until it feels right to do them."
