I-I shoulda known better, nothing lasts forever

Hey!

It all started out in a tan Dodge van
200 bucks that we stole from her dad
Out the back of his meth lab
Took the 45, I'll demand that
Lived with Bonnie 'bout to be a mommy
Came to California with Johnny
They had a run-in with the law
She shoulda listened to her ma

She said we'd be together (she said)
She used the word forever (she said)
Oh, my lovely lover (she said)
Why I'd love to love her

I-I I shoulda known better
Nothing lasts forever
Yeah, lasts forever
I shoulda known better

Ooh better
I shoulda known better
Ooh better
I shoulda known

Abortion clinic
I shoulda forced the issue
But she did it, a hanger and some tissue
Don't cry dry your eye, (she said)
I'll be back on my feet tonight, (she said)
I'll be walking the streets tonight, (she said)
Cuz these arms gotta eat tonight
Then we made love like a couple drunk buffalo
Was that rough enough?
It was the last time I'd ever see
I tried to thank her, with gonorrhea
But then she split, stole my sweater
Dude, I shoulda known better

I-I I shoulda known better
Nothing lasts forever
Yeah, lasts forever
Shoulda known better

Shoulda ended in the tan Dodge van
With 200 dollars worth of partying
But instead I'm sitting on sunset
Selling my soul for a hit

Yeah, what next?

Yeah, I-I I shoulda known better
Nothing lasts forever
Yeah, lasts forever
When you said you'd never leave and we'd be together
Nothing lasts forever, nothing ever lasts forever
Shoulda known better

Ooh better
I shoulda known better
Ooh better
I shoulda known

Ooh better
I shoula known better
Ooh better
I shoulda known
