Richard Marx – Should've Known Better lyrics

Another sleeplees night I can't explain

Somebody said they heard me call your name.
The radio won't let you leave my mind

I know it's over
But I don't know why.

Should've known better than to fall in love with you

Now love is just a faded memory.
Should've known better
Now I'm a prisoner to this pain

And my heart still aches for you.

There was no risk that I wouldn't take

Not a promise that I didn't make.
All I asked was that you just hold on

And now I'm wondering what I did wrong.
Should've known better than to fall in love with you
.. .

I gave you all of my body and soul

Never believing we might lose control

I took my hands off the wheel.

I can't remember if the lies were true

It's been a million years since I touched you.
I thought time might help me win this game

But being away from you is slowly driving me insane.

Should've known better than to fall in love with you

Should've known better than to fall in love with you
