22 Lessons for 2022 Using Lyrics

Another year gone! Time flies so fast, it’s quite unfathomable. And every time the end approaches, I usually reflect back on the good times, the bad ones, and what I’ve learned in order to make the next year better.

Here are 22 lessons, or song lyrics, that have rung true in 2022.

1- ๐ŸŽถ You know how the time flies / Only yesterday was the time of our lives ๐ŸŽถ

2- ๐ŸŽถ Nothing compares, no worries or cares
Regrets and mistakes, they’re memories made
Who would have known how bittersweet this would taste? ๐ŸŽถ

3- ๐ŸŽถ The worst things in life come free to us ๐ŸŽถ

4- ๐ŸŽถ And there’s no remedy for memory ๐ŸŽถ

5- ๐ŸŽถ But now, I don’t negotiate with insecurities
They always seem to get the best of me
I found I had to love myself the way I wanted you to
Love me ๐ŸŽถ

6- ๐ŸŽถ I got a paranoia in me
And you wouldn’t believe
Everything that I seen, no
Comin’ apart at the seams
And no one around me knows

Who I am, what I’m on
Who I’ve hurt and where they’ve gone
I know that I’ve done some wrong
But I’m tryna make it right ๐ŸŽถ

7- ๐ŸŽถ Oh, I try and I try to remember sometimes
If I breathe, it’s alright, but some things don’t change ๐ŸŽถ

8- ๐ŸŽถ I’m thinking ’bout how many times I’ve had to recover
All I do is start again
I’m thinking ’bout a new beginning
It’s never too late to start again, oh-oh ๐ŸŽถ

9- ๐ŸŽถ Nobody’s perfect, we’ve all lost and we’ve all lied
Most of us have cheated the rest of us have tried
The holiest of the holies even slip from time to time
We’ve all got dirty laundry hanging on the line ๐ŸŽถ

10- ๐ŸŽถ […]ย but hey, life goes on
We’ve all got the right to be wrong

‘Cause you can’t be everybody’s cup of tea
Some like it black, some like it green
Nobody’s everybody’s favorite
So you might as well just make it how you please

‘Cause you can’t be everybody’s cup of tea
Why would you want to be? ๐ŸŽถ

12- ๐ŸŽถ Moving on was feeling strong / But healing doesnโ€™t happen in a straight line ๐ŸŽถ

13- ๐ŸŽถ Keep lookin’ up
Don’t let the world bring you down
Keep your head in the clouds
And your feet on the ground ๐ŸŽถ

14- ๐ŸŽถ And if you never bleed, you’re never gonna grow ๐ŸŽถ

15- ๐ŸŽถ Time, mystical time
Cutting me open, then healing me fine ๐ŸŽถ

16- ๐ŸŽถ I’m damned if I do give a damn what people say ๐ŸŽถ

17- ๐ŸŽถ Everything you lose is a step you take
So, make the friendship bracelets, take the moment and taste it
You’ve got no reason to be afraid
You’re on your own, kid
Yeah, you can face this
You’re on your own, kid
You always have been ๐ŸŽถ

18- ๐ŸŽถ Dear reader, get out your map
Pick somewhere and just run
Dear reader, burn all the files
Desert all your past lives ๐ŸŽถ

19- ๐ŸŽถ Dear reader, you don’t have to answer
Just ’cause they asked you
Dear reader, the greatest of luxuries is your secrets ๐ŸŽถ

20- ๐ŸŽถ Never take advice from someone who’s falling apart ๐ŸŽถ

21- ๐ŸŽถ And just keep Jesus on your mind
Just keep Jesus on your mind
You do your dancin’, drink your wine
But just keep Jesus on your mind
‘Cause life’s too long for to keep regret
And love’s too strong to lay down for death
I know you’re hurtin’, but it’s not the end
So hold on, darlin’, I will see you again ๐ŸŽถ

22- ๐ŸŽถ This is for everybody
Babe, you gotta take care of your body, yuh yuh yuh
Ain’t no time to deny it, that is why we talking about it
To deal with it, don’t try to get by it
So we had to sit down and just write it
You can work your way to the top
Just know that thereโ€™s up and downs and there’s drops
Unfollow fear and just say “You are blocked”
Just know there is so much room at the top ๐ŸŽถ
