Learning

Album: Kane Brown (2016)
  • Learning, learning, learning

    Learning, learning, learning

    When I was six years old, I kinda wet the bed
    My stepdad came in and nearly beat me to death
    All bruised and broken, I was lonely and scared
    My mom, she was working, there was nobody there
    My nana showed up, she was super protective
    Had a tear in her eye, she saw how I was neglected
    The crazy part about it, she's a straight-up detective
    But you never would've guessed it, how she'd cook you a breakfast
    Three weeks later, she had him locked in a cell
    Now I'm seven years old with a story to tell
    Sing it

    I'm gonna let it go
    Forgiveness is something we gotta know
    'Cause if you hold on forever, it'll hurt your soul
    That's why I'm learning how to let it go
    That's why I'm learning how to let it go

    Now middle school's here, a new chapter in life
    New stepdad, too, made my mama his wife
    Got new problems now, like tryna fit in
    Getting looked down on just because of your skin
    It's bad enough, I can't afford them clothes
    Got high water's on with holes in my sole
    Now, that's the type of stuff to put a hole in your soul
    But, uh, I'm just gonna, uh, I'm just gonna

    I'm gonna let it go
    Forgiveness is something we gotta know
    'Cause if you hold on forever, it'll hurt your soul
    That's why I'm learning how to let it go
    That's why I'm learning how to let it go

    I'm grown up now, I learned enough for a song
    Still got some friends, but most of 'em gone
    Overdoses or killed by a gun
    Breaking into houses, life on the run
    Did it for his kid, now he won't be around
    Guess the little one's gonna be just like me now
    If you're carrying the bitterness around on your shoulders
    Then just remember what I told you
    Sing it

    I'm gonna let it go
    Forgiveness is something we gotta know
    'Cause if you hold on forever, it'll hurt your soul
    That's why I'm learning how to let it go
    That's why I'm learning how to let it go
    I'm learning how to let it go Writer/s: Blake Carter, Kane Brown, Sam Ellis
