Is there anyway to
Know when it's over?
When will you show her
When you'll be done?
Is there any day that
Slowly rolls over
That will know that
Your last war were won

How will you ever know?
How will you know . . .
How will you ever know

When you're
Sleeping at the crash site
Walkin on the wreckage of
Somebody's past life
Another one's old love
Where the fire burned
The grass began to grow
Nobody walks there
Everybody knows that

Oooo...
How will you know?
Singin'
Oooo...
How will you know?

Is there anyone who
Pulled it off easy
Spoke what they were thinking and
Moved on to the next city and
Is there anyone who
Let them down gently and
Moved on to the next town,
I don't know

Oooo...
How will you know?
Oooo...
How will you know?
That you've been
Sleeping at the crash site
Resting on the wreckage of
Somebody's past life
Somebody's old love
Sleepin' at the crash site
Restin' on the wreckage of
Somebody's old love
Somebody's old love

People have the right to fly
And will when it gets compromised
Airports see it all the time
I was gonna play "Wheel"
Now I changed my mind

Sleepin' at the crash site...
Sleepin' at the crash site...
Sleepin' at the crash site
Restin on the wreckage of
So much old love
So much old love

I can feel your body
When I'm lying in my bed
There's too much confusion
Running 'round you
Running 'round you

    General CommentOne of the best songs Mayer has done. Excellent lyrics, fantastic beat. It is basically a darker version of "Daughters". It explains how, when you are learing a new relationship, you can never really know what kind of baggage she/he carries with them. My favorite lyric in the songs is:

    "Where the fire burned
    The grass began to grow
    Nobody walks there
    Everybody knows that..."
