Color me in candy red
Oh I'll forget everything they said
Though it shakes my confidence for a while
And judging by the road I've seen
I wouldn't say that my hands are clean
But I wash them daily in denial

Cause the green mountain breeze did sweetly blow
And I know better but oh,
I'm beginning to doubt my self control
As the summer weather takes hold
And I've got a restless way but I can't let it show

Cause I know better than lovin' you
It's a highly irresponsible thing to do
But you're callin' to me from the ground below
My very own intoxicated Romeo
And oh, I know there's a world of trouble waiting to unfold
But I know better than to let you go

I've been wrong, I've been unkind
Ain't it amazing what you leave behind
And what hitches a ride and hangs around
But I see the laughter in your eyes
And I forget about the compromise I've made
With every demon draggin' me down

I'm not as brave as I used to be
Yeah I've known better days
And most of the blame points back to me
And all my careless ways
But you banish my regret
You look my way and I forget

That I know better than lovin' you
It's a highly irresponsible thing to do
But you're callin' to me from the ground below
My very own intoxicated Romeo
And oh, I know there's a world of trouble waiting to unfold
But I know better than to let you go

Oh well so much for keeping dry
When suddenly stars are raining from the sky
I'm far too gone to play it smart
I've lost my mind but I trust my heart

Cause I know better than lovin' you
It's a highly irresponsible thing to do
But you're callin' to me and I cannot hide
I've fallen for you in spite of all my foolish pride
And hey, I pray that the rest of the world will understand someday
But I know better than to let my fear of ridicule run the show
Yes I know better than to let you go
