"Should Have Known Better" as written by Jeff Halavacs, Cody Hanson, Austin Winkler, Marshal Dutton and Jacob Kasher Hindlin....
Woke up but you're back in my bed,
We broke up, how this happened again?
I always end up letting you in
When I start drinking, not thinking.

I should have listened to all of my friends,
Same road and the same dead end,
I’m loving while she pretends,
So I keep drinking, not thinking.

First love is hard enough
Even worse to give it up,
I can’t forget her when she’s gone
But she can’t leave when I’m holding on.

So what can I say?
I made a mistake,
This time you’ll never change,
You’re nothing but trouble and I should have known better.
It’s always the same,
I’ll take the blame
This time I’ll never change,
You’re nothing but trouble and I should have known better.
Girl, I should have known better.

Every time that I start to forget
I drive at the spot where we first met,
You had nothing on underneath that dress,
We were just drinking, not thinking.

Just two kids, it was way too soon,
Didn’t realize what we had to lose,
No way to know we wouldn’t make it through,
Didn’t know we’ll end up seeking.

First love is hard enough
Even worse to give it up,
I can’t forget her when she’s gone
But she can’t leave when I’m holding on.

So what can I say?
I made a mistake,
This time you’ll never change,
You’re nothing but trouble and I should have known better.
It’s always the same,
I’ll take the blame
This time I’ll never change,
You’re nothing but trouble and I should have known better.

Keep leaving me with nothing,
Someday I’ll live my life
Right now I’m losing this fight.
Lust ain’t the same as trusting
Can’t figure out this loving,
Guess it ain’t happening tonight.

So what can I say?
I made a mistake,
This time you’ll never change,
You’re nothing but trouble and I should have known better.
It’s always the same,
I’ll take the blame
This time I’ll never change,
You’re nothing but trouble and I should have known better.
Girl, I should have known better.
I should have known better.

    My InterpretationBasically this song is self explanatory..
    But, it's really about a boy falling in love with a girl when they are younger and she does something which makes her 'trouble' yet the boy can't stop going back to her and he doesn't know why. He always finds her 'back in his bed' and forever making mistakes.

    It's such a good song and speaks to me in so many ways, it reminds me of my situation with my ex. It was just a constant cycle of him cheating, us falling out and me getting back with him. This song is go good!!
