"If I Didn't Know Any Better" as written by and Sherrill/smith....
I turned around
Before I could run I found you already settled down in the back of my mind
I know this is just a customary feelin'
The moon is our deceiver that will leave you running blind

Your heart is pullin'
If I didn't know any better
I'd be fallin'
Deeper and deeper it's true
I'd hear it callin'
If I didn't know any better
And I'd be in love with you

Didn't want to
Look in the eyes of the one that I would be drawn to
I'm a moth lost in a fire
And I know this is just a beautiful illusion,
A case of the confusion, between love and desire

Your heart is pullin'
If I didn't know any better
I'd be fallin'
Deeper and deeper it's true
I'd hear it callin'
If I didn't know any better
And I'd be in love

When the flame burns out
And fine'ly settles down
And you'd forget I ever came around

Your heart is pullin'
If I didn't know any better
I'd be fallin'
Deeper and deeper it's true
I'd hear it callin'
If didn't know any better
And I'd be in love with you

I turned around
Before I could run I found you already settled down in the back of my mind

    General CommentSimply Beautiful. This song is about knowing that someone is no good for you, but still getting that feeling everytime they look at you or speak your name. It's having complete disregard for the consequences of your desires...

    My InterpretationTo me, this song is about falling for for someone of which your relationship is purely physical, one that is built around human desire. Many people can relate to letting emotions overcome them when being physically intimate with someone. The song is about how one-sided that shift can be. One lover falls in love while the other never arrives at the same conclusion.
