1 Thoughts and Song Meanings
The woman he loves has not done nor said anything which makes him feel worse and his guilt is framed not the affair/ or relationship with the other woman. "Now you act so surprised to hear what you already know"
After she (finds out) she still "holds him
close and hard" which is where his confusion shows again. "I was like a statue at first refusing to aknowledge you've been hurt" guilt doesn't show at first but in the final verse we see in the end he feels guilty. He has betrayed her, but she "has stole him from the sorrow he has earned." The title of this song "Lesson Learned" shows that his lesson wasn't only to never cheat again and that mistakes happen...but mainly that his lesson was to be be like her. The woman he loved. A better person. Accepting and loyal.
