Yes I’ve had my share of broken dreams and more than a couple of falls
And in chasin’ what I thought were moonbeams I have run into a couple of walls
But in looking back at the places I’ve been the chances that I’ve left behind
I just look at myself to find I learned the hard way every time

Cause I’ve had my share of good intentions and I’ve made my share of mistakes
I’ve learned at times it’s best to bend cause if you don’t well those are the breaks
I should have listened to the things I was told but I was young and too proud at the time
Now I look at myself to find I’ve learned the hard way every time

But in lookin’ back at the lessons I’ve learned and the mountains I wanted to climb
I just look at myself to find I’ve learned the hard way every time

Cause I’ve had my share of broken dreams and more than a couple of falls
And in chasin’ what I thought were moonbeams I have run into a couple of walls
But in looking back at places I’ve been I would sure be the first one to say
When I look at myself today I wouldn’t have done it any other way
