If I'd known then
If only I had known
What, where or when
I would of kept you on the phone
Hindsight is tough
It's so obvious
Never enough for the two of us

I would of tried a little harder
I would have cried a little louder
I would have lied with more aplomb
I, I, I, I, I, I, I should have known

When we made love
Sometimes it was great
Just once or twice
I would have called it second rate
Anyway the days passed by in peace
I never though you needed
More release

I would of tried a little harder
I would have cried a little louder
I would have lied with more aplomb
I, I, I, I, I, I, I should have known

If I had...if, if, if
I should have, I should have
I could have, I could have
Oh fuck, I really miss you
I really miss you

I should have tried a little harder
I should have cried a whole lot louder
I should have lied
With more aplomb
I, I, If only I, I should have known
