"I Told You So" as written by William Hart and Tom Peterson....
You said you needed your space
I wasn't where you wanted to be
I didn't stand in your way
I only want you to be happy
And, so, how surprised am I to see you here tonight?

Oh, can't you see
That for worse or for better we're better together?
Please just come back home
No, don't say that you're sorry
And I won't say I told you so

Sometimes in our life
We get to where we wonder if
The long road that we're on
Is headin' in the same direction
Well, when it comes to you and me
We're right where I know we should be

Oh, can't you see
That for worse or for better we're better together?
Please just come back home
No, don't say that you're sorry
And I won't say I told you so

Sometimes it's like we're deep in nothing but love
The slightest thing can grow so foolishly
Remind me, please
Oh, can't you see
That for worse or for better we're better together?
Please just come back home
No, don't say that you're sorry
You don't gotta say you're sorry, baby
Oh, can't you see
That for worse or for better we're better together?
Please just come back home
No, don't say that you're sorry
And I won't say I told you so
And I won't say I told you so
But I told you so
Should've known better than to leave me, baby

    General CommentAbout a guy who had the faith that his relationship with a girl would work. She didnt believe him but eventually comes back to him and he doesnt wanna hear sorry and doesnt wanna say "I told you so"

    General Commenti love this song and i don't love many country songs. A guy who loves a girl so much that he only wants her to be happy so he moves aside to let her do her thing. she fails and comes back and he's the better person by pretty much saying don't mention it and i won't mention either. hehe. finally the guy is the one to say i'll let you back in.

    General CommentLovely song - not a big fan of country, but Keith is one of my favorites. Nice song about a guy who loves a girl so much that he just wants her to be happy. I guess she leaves him, but she loves him loads as well, and so she goes back to him, but the guy knows that she loves him lots as well, so he doesn't want to hear any apologies and he won't say anything like "I told you so that you loved me"

    General CommentI was listening to an interview that Keith did about this song, and he said that it was supposed to have a tongue n cheek attitude about it.
    Basically, it's about being with someone, letting them go, but knowing the whole time that they are going to come back to you.
    The beat is outrageous on this song.
    It sounds even better live :)

    General Commentbasically what everyone else said.
    i just love in the end when he kinda rubs it in the chick's face a little bit when he's like, "but i told you so." and the the "you shoulda know better than to leave me baby" i love that part too.
    awesome songggg.

    General CommentI'm in love with this song. Oh my gosh. It's amazing. I just love the attitude he has in it. He wants her to be happy and knows that she'll be happy with him, but when she wants to go looking for someone else to be happy with, he lets her. Then she comes back. It's just SO great.

    I'm kind of in the same situation. I'm in love with my best friend, and I know he'd be happy with me, but he doesn't want to believe it, yet I just have this gut feeling that we're supposed to be together. Maybe that's why I love it so much. But, it's just AMAZING.

    And I agree with emotina. It's INCREDIBLE live. And the video...aahh. I love it. Especially when he says 'But I told you so. The way he says it is just...ahh. I can't get over it.
