Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter Eric Roberson has returned with “Lessons,” his first solo single of 2021.
On his tender tune, Roberson reflects on how some lessons he’s learned from his past relationships have been applied to his current one.
He sings in the first verse, “God has a funny way of showing you lessons / For years I would stare up in the sky with so many questions / Like will I find someone for me? / Or even if I’m standing in the place I need to be? / I can’t say that every love affair I had was perfect / But every painful day and late night was worth it.”
Speaking on the inspiration behind “Lessons,” Roberson explains to Rated R&B, “I wrote ‘Lessons’ the morning of my 13th anniversary with my amazing wife. It reflects on what I went through and how all of it was needed to have what I have now. The hope is that ‘Lessons’ will help people appreciate what they have and be hopeful for what’s to come.”
In spring 2020, Roberson shared an inspirational album titled Hear From Here. “Shows cancelled…we have nothing to do but music. I hope to take your mind off things,” he said about the impromptu project.
