i should’ve known better lyrics – carrie newcomer

been a long time comin’
and the cards were stacked
it’s been a long hard road
to h*ll and back
your love meant trouble from the day we met
you won every hand and i lost every bet
now you’d think i should’ve known better
now you’d think that i would have seen it come
and my heart sank when i read that letter
it sank like a stone
it sank like a stone

a cup of cold coffee, yesterday’s mail
hard love like that’s always bound to fail
your love meant trouble from the day we met
if you want your things i put ’em out
on the front step
now you’d think i should’ve known better
now you’d think that i would have seen it come
my heart sank when i read that letter
it sank like a stone
it sank like a stone

now you’d think that i should’ve known better
now you’d think that i would have seen it come
my heart sank when i read that letter
it sank like a stone
it sank like a stone

all alone in my kitchen, all alone in my bed
some things you can’t take back
once they’ve been said
i don’t know what this love is for
all i know is baby
i don’t want it anymore
now you’d think that i should’ve known better
now you’d think that i would have seen it come
my heart sank when i read that letter
it sank like a stone
it sank like a stone

it’s been a long time comin’
and the cards were stacked
it’s been a long hard road
to h*ll and back
