You shoulda have let me know
That i had no chance at all
I can never be what you wanted
Shoulda let me know
That you're still thinking about her
You told me you was on it!
Sometimes i wonder why
Why i even bother
Try to pull you out, boy
Should have let me know
I would lose you to the drink

Lift your eyes, lift your eyes
Just a little higher, just a little higher
Lift those eyes, look into mine
Cause i can guide you, i can guide you
Lift those eyes, lift your eyes
I know that you're scared to death
Running out of breath
I can hold you, hold you!

You should have let me know,
That you worked around the clock
Could have tried a little harder, yeah
You should have let me know,
But you're afraid to love me
Instead of looking like a liar!
Sometimes i wonder why,
Why i even ask you, but i do!

Lift your eyes, lift your eyes
Just a little higher, just a little higher
Lift those eyes, look into mine
Cause i can guide you, i can guide you
Lift those eyes, lift your eyes
I know that you're scared to death
Running out of breath
But i can hold you, hold you!

    My InterpretationMaybe its about a guy who just wants sex and/or fall is afraid to fall in love after a relationship ended badly and he is trying to get the memories to go away by being with the girl and turning to alcohol this is implied by the lyrics "but you're afraid to love me" and "Should have let me know, I would lose you to the drink" . I think that the girl wants him to fall in love and stop his pain and hurt because she already is in love and stop him from looking at her as a body but at her face and her as a person the lyrics "lift your eyes look into mine" indicate this and also she's so desperate for him to be in love so she wants to 'guide' him.
