lyrics

I was gonna call you, I was gonna ask you how you’re doing
but I know better...
I was gonna call you on the phone, ask if you still sleep alone
but I know better,
I know better...

I’m a slow learner: you said “stop”, I went further.
I could dance right off the edge of the world.
but I’m smarter now
got it through my head somehow
gotta let you go, now I know
now I know better

I was gonna write you, I was gonna wish that you were here
but I know, I know...
I was gonna write you a letter, cast another tether
but I know better,
I know better

I’m a compass and a ruler in the age of computers,
I keep looking for an angle I can try
but it’s no damn use, how could I be so obtuse?
you’re not coming back, I’m cuttin’ my hope loose
‘cause I know better

two ships in the night
two strangers in the day
so I won’t ask you again
if you’re going my way

I’m a slow learner: you said “stop”, I went further.
I could dance right off the edge of the world.
but I’m smarter now
got it through my head somehow
gotta let you go, now I know
now I know...

so I was gonna call you, ask if you two got back together
but I don’t wanna know...
I know better...
