Will common sense teach me everything I need to know?
Like what's worth fighting for
And what I need to just let go?
Will common sense teach me what it means to be alive
And what to make of all this time, time, time?
And why it seems that I am bound
To love someone who does not know
What it means to love
Someone who has never known
The sweetness of this love
Will common sense make me want to be a better man?
Will common sense make it easier to understand
That who I am isn't always who I want to be
And what I want is hardly ever what I really need?
And now I know just how it feels...
I loved you first and loved you better
So you might learn that love is stronger
Wiser by far
And so that someday you would know
To love someone... And that is everything you need to know
