SHELBY LYNNE lyrics - I've Learned To Live

SHELBY LYNNE
"I've Learned To Live"
(Dean Dillon - Frank Dycus)

Like a child lost in the wilderness I knew not where to go
Surrounded by the emptiness of a love that left me cold
I stumbled through the darkness of nights that have no stars
And days that have no sunshine to warm my naked heart

Like a bird in flight brought down by stones from an unknown assailant's sling
A stranger took you from my arms and I lost everything
In days to come I nearly ran out of ways to stay alive
But through it all I never lost the will to survive

But I'm not over you and I doubt that I'll ever be
So I've learned to live and you won't be the death of me oh no
Yes I've learned to live and I'm doing well but I'm not over you

Like a thief who takes just what he needs and he leaves the rest behind
You took the heart right out of me and you left me with my mind
And I've almost went out of it at times believed I did
But gradually I learned that you're someone I'll have to live with

But I'm not over you and I doubt...
Yes I've learned to live and I'm doing well but I'm not over you
