so many years I just suffered through the tears
knowing one day i'd wake up wishing I had never met her
but as the time goes by my hope keeping playing every day
as I laugh to myself, 'i just should have known better'
there's no more laughter as I think about the other girl
it's a slap in my face as i'm opening her letter
she's doing fine now with two kids and another man
as I cry out loud, 'i just should have known better'
she was the reason I was living every day
I would ride upon a white horse in my quest to try and find her
but now it's too late, I don't care if I die tonight
cos a voice keeps ringing in my heart, "i should have known better"
I learned my lesson this time
lonliness and a broken heart
should've known right from the start
