"I Told You So" as written by and Mary Virginia Taylor....
I know you hate that I think this way
I know you think that it's wrong of me
I know that everything is strong today
But the longer we go I know the fire will start to fade
I'm maybe walking to long for this race
I know you said that you won't do the same
And so I'm writing this song so the day
See I'm right I'm play this record with a smirk
While I say

I told you so
I told you so
I told you so
I told you so

I know you hate that I think this way
I could be wrong but the chances ain't great
I know calls your sweet message
Will turn lately just to make me smile
To quite necessary
I know your vision your eye just see me
But somehow time seem to make it blurry
And so I'm writing this song so the day
I see I'm right, I'll play this record
While I cry and I say

I told you so
I told you so
I told you so
I told you so

I know the newest of it all
Seems right but baby I'm no fool
And I got pride that happily ever
Love should just last a while.
I know you think you love me
But love ain't never stopped nobody
From creeping around every once in a while
When things start to settle down
And so I won't look like a clown
I' m a call it now

I told you so
I told you so
I told you so
I told you so

I told you so
I told you so
I told you so
I told you so

    General Commentshe's in a relationship that is on the outs but it seems like the guy still wants to try. I hope this isn't a personal reference to Solange's marriage.

    General CommentActually, I think this is her being in a relationship that's going well. However, because of being hurt in the past, she is cynical and EXPECTS him to hurt her, cheat on her, etc., and predicts it so that when it happens, she won't feel so foolish. Total pessimism, but with a small hint of hope ("unless you prove me wrong").

    I think it's "Would've Been The One" that's about Daniel.
