You've Got To Learn

Nina Simone

You've got to learn to show a happy face although you're full of misery
You mustn't show a trace of sadness and never look for simple things

You've got to learn although it's very hard the way(?) you pocket in your pride
Sometimes face humiliation while you're burning up inside

Facing reality is often hard to do when it seems happiness is gone
You've got to learn to hide your tears and tell your heart life must go on

You've got to learn to leave the table when love's no longer being served
To show everybody that you're able to leave without saying a word

You've got to learn to hide your sorrow and go on living as before
But good is thinking of tomorrow
Who knows what it may have been stored?
You've got to learn to be much stronger the times your head must rule your heart

You've got to learn from hard experience and lisen to advice
And sometimes pay the price and learn to live with a broken heart
