Should Have Known Better Words/Music: Janet Whiteway

This here’s a story ‘bout a girl I know
She’s not so different from us all
She thinks she’s done something irreversible
In a world that shifts with every turn

She says this could have been my happiness
But instead I bought (I’m smoking) a pack of cigarettes
And I know, I know, should have known better
Should have known better by now

But I couldn’t walk away
Who could walk away from those eyes
Sweet surprise
And I wouldn’t turn away
Could you turn away from those arms
Safe from harm, but I know, I know
We should have known better, should have known better by now.

This here’s a story about older and no wiser
We let our bodies move before our heads know where
We’re going, but you know
Sometimes you find the sweetest places that way
In a world that keeps us on the narrow

She says this could have been my happiness
But instead I bought a pack of cigarettes
And I know, I know, should have known better
Should have known better by now

But I couldn’t walk away
Who could walk away from those eyes
Sweet surprise
And I wouldn’t turn away
Could you turn away from those arms
Safe from harm, but I know, I know
We should have known better, should have known better by now.

She says this could have been my happiness
But instead I’m smoking cigarettes
And I know, I know, should have known better
Yes I know, we should have known better
Ah but babe you know I was thinking
I hope we never, hope we never know better
Hope we never know better by now.
