lyrics

When you get too close to the fire
You get singed, you get burnt
You learnt not to stand too close
When you’re neck-deep in the water and you can’t swim
You get stuck, you might drown
You learn not to go in too deep

Have you learnt your lesson yet?
Have you learnt your lesson yet, little child?
(x2)

Oh

When you run into the dark with a blindfold
You get lost, you fall hard
You learn to bring a light next time
When you pet an unknown dog and you can’t run
You get bit, you get mauled
You learn not to stick your hand out

Have you learnt your lesson yet?
Have you learnt your lesson yet, little child?
(x2)

Oh

When you sat inside a cell waiting for me
Red eyes, tear streaks
I thought you’d never try again
When I held your weightless body against mine
So cold, long gone
I took the needle out of your arm

Have I raised you right?
Have I raised you right, my child?
(x4)

Oh
