I guess I really should have known,
I guess I really should have known,
I said I, I guess I really should have known,
I said I, I guess I really should have known.

Someone please smack me up the side of the head,
And shake my thoughts from this subject.
Everything seems so pretty when you’re lying in bed,
Everything was so perfect.

Then someone comes along just to shatter your concentration,
Yelling, “Wake up, boy,” – Christ, what an imagination,
“Here’s the truth, son, here’s the shocking realisation,”
“If things seem too good to be true, they usually are. No celebration.”

I started from my reverie; the alarm shattered my sleep,
And saved my soul from pollution.
And the shocking realisation made me start to weep,
That was your one contribution.

What did I do wrong, apart from be a fool? Would you punish me for that?
You played an old game but you just used a different format.
There’s that boy, the ideal candidate for a doormat.
Feeling so low that I have to reach up to find where the floor’s at.

Could you look me in the eye,
And say, “You were more than just an alibi”?
We may as well just call it off,
We may as well just call it off,
We may as well just call it off,
I’m sorry, but,
We may as well just call it off.

I heard it third hand what you were trying to plan,
And that hurt more than your deception,
I thought I owned the world, felt like the Son of Man,
But my shot took a deflection.

It’s a sad admission but I’ll really be sorry to lose you,
What can I do? It takes a lot of will power to refuse you,
But I won’t tell a soul, won’t give anyone any grounds to accuse you,
Because the last thing I want to see is people take the chance to abuse you.

Could you look me in the eye,
And say, “You were more than just an alibi”?
We may as well just call it off,
We may as well just call it off,
We may as well just call it off,
I’m sorry, but,
We may as well just call it off.

And when all is said and done, we didn’t know each other,
That’s not a good starting point,
And I know it’s gonna take a while for us to both recover,
I’m gonna have to leave this joint.

So once again, another dream is shattered,
Yeah, once again my hopes are left torn and tattered,
But it’s only my confidence that’s bruised and battered,
And it turns out in the end that my confidence never really mattered.

Could you look me in the eye,
And say, “You were more than just an alibi”?
We may as well just call it off,
We may as well just call it off,
We may as well just call it off,
I’m sorry, but,
We may as well just call it off.

We may as well just call it off,
We may as well just call it off,
We may as well just call it off,
I’m sorry, but,
We may as well just call it off.

I guess I really should have known,
I guess I really should have known,
I said I, I guess I really should have known,
I said I, I guess I really should have known.
I guess I really should have known,
I guess I really should have known,
I said I, I guess I really should have known, (what a fool!)
I said I, I guess I really should have known. (Yeah!)
I guess I really should have known,
I guess I really should have known,
I said I, I guess I really should have known, (where did I go wrong?)
I said I, I guess I really should have known. (I don’t know!)
I guess I really should have known, (yeah!)
I guess I really should have known,
I said I, I guess I really should have known, (the whispered secret words were lies!)
I said I, I guess I really should have known. (You couldn’t look me in the eyes!)
I guess I really should have known, (not even an apology!)
I guess I really should have known, (set me free, set me free!)
I said I, I guess I really should have known, (yeah, I really should have known!)
I said I, I guess I really should have known. (I guess it’s time for me to leave home!)
I guess I really should have known, (hmmm-mmmm!)
I guess I really should have known, (yeah-yeah, yeah-yeah, yeah-yeah!)
I said I, I guess I really should have known, (I really did love you, y’know!)
I said I, I guess I really should have known. (And now I guess it’s time to go!)
I guess I really should have known, (this is crazy!)
I guess I really should have known, (I never meant to write this song!)
I said I, I guess I really should have known, (look what you’ve done!)
I said I, I guess I really should have known. (You made a fool of everyone!)
I guess I really should have known,
I guess I really should have known,
I said I, I guess I really should have known, (I guess I really should have known!)
I said I, I guess I really should have known.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!
