Random thought [musing time]

As a person learning English as a second language,
how do you keep straight the words
lead, lead, led,
read, read and red?

There's a really faulty pattern here.
Present tense to lead, lead (the metal) the noun, past tense led,
Present tense to read, past tense read, red the colour.
See what I'm saying?
