lyrics

I'VE BEEN THERE
(Kurt Fortmeyer/Richard Fagan)

Teachers couldn’t teach me nothin’ back when I was in my prime
Their lessons couldn’t find their way through this hard head of mine
I could never learn what’s right or wrong by watching all my friends
I had to make my own mistakes time and time again

Been there done that made me a better man
Now I’ve climbed out of the fire and back into the frying pan
If you don’t think you can stand the heat I’ve got some things to share
I’m here to say I’ve been there

I thought my world had ended when love walked out the door
But broken hearts can mend so they’re much stronger than before
I never understood how bad the pain of heartache felt
Or how the selfish things I did affected someone else

Been there done that made me a better man
Now I’ve climbed out of the fire and back in the frying pan
If you don’t think you can stand the heat I’ve got some things to share
I’m here to say I’ve been there

You live and you learn
Or you can crash and you burn
It’s as simple and as difficult as that

Been there done that made me a better man
Now I’ve climbed out of the fire and back in the frying pan
If you don’t think you can stand the heat I’ve got some things to share
I’m here to say I’ve
Been there done that made me a better man
Now I’ve climbed out of the fire and back in the frying pan
If you don’t think you can stand the heat I’ve got some things to share
I’m here to say I’ve been there
