I tried to talk, tried honesty
Tried everything known to me
Tried the song and I tried the dance
Tried to step outside our circumstance

But I know, I know, I know better

You cried when I told you,
cried when you told me to go
cried when I was gone, and when I came back to you
cried in my arms of corduroy
were they tears of sadness or joy?

I know, I know, I know better
I know that scar, its not far beneath your collarbone
The one you said hurt only when I was far from home
And you suffered the pain all alone

We found a place that we’ve been looking for
Its got lots of windows and a door
Its far from perfect but that’s just fine
And the rooms are square and the walls are bear
But that’s just time
‘cause I know, I know, I know better.
