Learning to Live Again

by Garth Brooks

I burned my hand, I cut my face 
Heaven knows how long it's been 
Since I've felt so out of place 
I'm wonderin' if I'll fit in 

Debbie and Charley said they'd be here by nine 
And Deb said she might bring a friend 
Just my luck, they're right on time 
So here I go again 

I'm gonna smile my best smile 
And I'm gonna laugh like it's going out of style 
Look into her eyes and pray that she don't see 
That learning to live again is killing me 

Little cafe, table for four 
But there's just conversation for three 
I like the way she let me get the door 
I wonder what she thinks of me 

Debbie just whispered, "You're doin' fine" 
And I wish that I felt the same 
She's asked me to dance, now her hand's in mine 
Oh, my god, I've forgotten her name 

But I'm gonna smile my best smile 
And I'm gonna laugh like it's going out of style 
Look into her eyes and pray that she don't see 
That learning to live again is killing me 

Now here we are beneath her porch light 
And I say what a great time it's been 
A kiss on the cheek, a whisper goodnight 
And I say, "can I see you again" 

And she just smiles her best smile 
And she laughs like it's going out of style 
Looks into my eyes and says, "We'll see" 
Oh this learning to live again is killing me 
God this learning to live again is killing me
