Learning How To Love You
written by John Hiatt

I'm 34 years old now
And I've come to you
Baby I don't even know how
I got through

From the first kiss in the schoolyard
Til the last heart broke in two
I didn't know it would be so hard
Learning how to love you
There was a life that I was living
In some cracked rearview
Where no future was given
To a heart untrue

Still I thought that I was so strong
That my will could force me through
I didn't know it would be so long
Learning how to love you

I might have never realized
The courage in your kiss
And the sweet forgiveness in your eyes

Babe I know you've walked a mile
In someone else's shoes
Maybe you've left some faces smiling
Walking off your blues

And I don't pretend to know how
You ever saw it through
'Cause I only got to where I am now
Learning how to love you
