Words of Wisdom

(Topham/Twigg)
Lead Vocals: Lee

I thought that we were set for life
We'd be together man and wife
But all the plans I made for us have changed
I thought I could decide for you
Everything that we would do
I wish I could have bit my tongue
But I kept going on and on

Words of wisdom
Everyone offers me
Words of wisdom
Now I can see
That it's easy on the outside
To give out advice
But now you're gone
I can recognise
What I put you through
With of those words of wisdom
I gave to you

Everybody's tellin' me
It clearly wasn't meant to be
But they don't know how much I hurt you
I was wrong
Now I realize that being wise
(So wise)
Doesn't always mean to criticise
(To criticise)
And by driving your love away
I know now what not to say

Words of wisdom
Everyone offers me
Words of wisdom
Now I can see
That it's easy on the outside
To give out advice
But now you're gone
I can recognise
What I put you through
With of those words of wisdom
I gave to you

They tell me how life goes on
And I gotta be strong
But I don't wanna be looked upon
As someone who really needs

Words of wisdom
Everyone offers me
Words of wisdom
Now I can see
That it's easy on the outside
To give out advice
But now you're gone
I can recognise
What I put you through
With of those words of wisdom
I gave to you

I gave to you
(Words of wisdom)
I gave to you
(Words of wisdom)
I gave to you
(Words of wisdom)
