Have you got, anything worth waiting for?
Tear my heart, tear my heart, so it's on the floor

I should of known with you
I should of known with you, better than that

It's too late, it's too late to not let you down
And your suitcase, it is lining the heart you stole

I should of known with you
I should have known with you, better then that

But it's all that you left, But its all that you left
It's too late, I can't let you know
But its all that you left
But its all that you left, It's too late

I should of known with you
I should of known with you, better than that
I should of known with you, better than that

But you, you burn a hole, you burn a hole in my heart
Disarm and let it slide I wont be the one you want,
If lazy love, will not help my aching bones

It's too late the patient man, quietly awaits
And your suitcase, won't take long to get out the door

I should of known with you...
I should of known with you, better than that

But you, you burn a hole, you burn a hole in my heart
Disarm and let it slide, I won't be the one you want
If lazy love will not help my aching bones

    General Commentagreed agreed agreed, im listening to them right now on live at the wireless, i think they should have got number one in the hottest 100 but 8th is still great! im getting their album when i get the money, its the best investment you'll make this year!

    General Commentsome of these lyrics are wrong. it should b "but you, you burnt a hole" and "the patient man quietly awaits, and your suitcase it is lyin near the heart u stole" and "its too late i cant love you no more". i totally agree that this is a bewtiful song n tha guitar solo isnt bad either.

    General CommentThe words are in the album sleeve. It's "and your suitcase, it is lining the heart you stole".

    General CommentI agree with atthedrive-in. Little Birdy reminds me of K's Choice in that I can't BELIEVE they aren't more popular and widely known than they are. (did that make sense?)
    Anyway, I love this song. Every time I hear that intro I get goosebumps...

    General CommentI think it says "Disarm and let it slide I wont be THE ONLY ONE"
    It makes a bit more sense that way. I wont be the only one if lazy love wont help my aching bones. As in, I'm not the first and last person to be hurt by you or in love. There are others and she should have known better because of his history. And she won't be the last.
