Woke up with you back in my bed,
We broke up, how this happened again?
I always end up letting you in
When I start drinking, not thinking.

I should have listened to all of my friends,
Same road and the same dead end,
I’m loving while she pretends,
So I keep drinking, not thinking.

First drop is hard enough
Even hurts to get it all,
I can’t forget her when she’s gone
But she can’t leave when I’m holding on.

So what can I say?
I made a mistake,
This time you’ll never change,
You’re nothing but trouble and I should have known better.
It’s always the same,
I’ll take the blame
This time I’ll never change,
You’re nothing but trouble and I should have known better.
Girl, I should have known better.

Every time that I start to forget
I drive at the spot where we first met,
You had nothing on underneath that dress,
We were just drinking, not thinking.

Just two kids, it was way too soon,
Didn’t realize what we had to lose,
No way to know we wouldn’t make it through,
Didn’t know we’ll end up seeking.

First drop is hard enough
Even hurts to get it all,
I can’t forget her when she’s gone
But she can’t leave when I’m holding on.

So what can I say?
I made a mistake,
This time you’ll never change,
You’re nothing but trouble and I should have known better.
It’s always the same,
I’ll take the blame
This time I’ll never change,
You’re nothing but trouble and I should have known better.

Keep leaving me with nothing,
Someday I’ll live my life
But right now I’m losing this fight.
Lust ain’t the same as trusting
Can’t figure out this loving,
Guess it ain’t high in tonight.

So what can I say?
I made a mistake,
This time you’ll never change,
You’re nothing but trouble and I should have known better.
It’s always the same,
I’ll take the blame
This time I’ll never change,
You’re nothing but trouble and I should have known better.
Girl, I should have known better.
