i could have told you so lyrics – eva cassidy

i could have told you she’d hurt you
love you a while then desert you
if only you’d asked i could have told you so

i could have saved you some crying
i could have told you he was lying
if only you’d asked i could have told you so

i see her there as i toss and turn and try to sleep
i see him there making promises he’ll never keep
and soon it’s over and done with
find someone new to have fun with
if only you’d asked i could have told you so

[scat]

i could have told you she’d hurt you
love you a while then desert you
if only you’d asked i could have told you so

i could have saved you a whole lot of crying
i could have told you he was lying
if only you’d asked i could have told you so

i see her there as i toss and turn and try to sleep
i see him there with promises he’ll never keep
and soon it’s over and done with
find someone new to have fun with
if only you’d asked i could have told you so

with all of my tears i could have told you so
