Carly Pearce – Should’ve Known Better Lyrics

Should’ve Known Better Lyrics – Carly Pearce

I am my mother’s daughter
I watched her with my father
I saw it all, the good and bad
Should’ve known better than that
You found me at the right time
I loved you from that first night
Bet everything on what we had
Should’ve known better than that

I gave you my heart, you let it go to waste
You made me do the leaving and you made me take the blame
Does it make you feel good, to make me feel bad?
Yeah, you should’ve known better, should’ve known better
Than to break what you couldn’t fix
Boy, what a shame what you’re gonna miss
Why’d you go and do what you can’t take back?
Yeah, you should’ve known better, should’ve known better than that

You sold me on a fantasy
Damn, and it all felt real to me
Thought you were the man in the photograph
Should’ve known better than that
Oh, I should’ve known better than that

I gave you my heart, you let it go to waste
You made me do the leaving and you made me take the blame
Does it make you feel good, to make me feel bad?
Yeah, you should’ve known better, should’ve known better
Than to break what you couldn’t fix
Boy, what a shame what you’re gonna miss
Why’d you go and do what you can’t take back?
Yeah, you should’ve known better, should’ve known better than that

Still some nights, I’m crying on the floor
But I’m not sleeping in the bed you made, no more

I gave you my heart, you let it go to waste
You made me do the leaving and you made me take the blame
Does it make you feel good, to make me feel bad?
Yeah, you should’ve known better, should’ve known better
Than to break what you couldn’t fix
Boy, what a shame what you’re gonna miss
Why’d you go and do what you can’t take back?
Yeah, you should’ve known better, should’ve known better than that

Oh, oh, you should’ve known better than that
