Love Lesson

She thought she’d give me a lesson in love

I knew I’d teach her all about heart-break

She wanted to show me what it meant to yearn

But I only wanted to play

She said she’d show me what it was to share

Instead I gave her a lesson in grieving

She thought she was an expert when it came to love

She didn’t know I was a master at leaving
