Life should be like a game of cards
You make a mistake shuffle the deck and start over
It should be just like drivin' in your car
Get lost and your navigation system gets you closer

But there ain't no handbook, you're on your own
Got no instructions when it comes to love
'Cause once you do something can't be undone
Wish I could take back letting you go

If I knew then what I know now
I wouldn't have said I don't need you around
Alone in this mess silence is so loud
So I would treat you the best, baby if I knew then

What I know now, what I know now
What I know now, what I know now
What I know now, what I know now
Yeah, I would treat you the best
Baby, if I knew then what I know now

Wish I get remote controls
Then I just rewind into the time it was better
It should have a restart button
So I could travel right back to the day that I met her

But there ain't no handbook, you're on your own
Got no instructions when it comes to love
'Cause once you do something can't be undone
Wish I could take back letting you go

If I knew then what I know now
I wouldn't have said I don't need you around
Alone in this mess silence is so loud
So I would treat you the best, baby, if I knew then

What I know now, what I know now
What I know now, what I know now
What I know now, what I know now
Yeah, I would treat you the best
Baby, if I knew then what I know now

'Cause there ain't no handbook, you're on your own
Got no instructions when it comes to love
'Cause once you do something can't be undone
Wish I could take back letting you go

If I knew then what I know now
I wouldn't have said I don't need you around
Alone in this mess silence is so loud
So I would treat you the best, baby, if I knew then

What I know now, what I know now
What I know now, what I know now
What I know now, what I know now
Yeah, I would treat you the best
Baby, if I knew then what I know now

If I knew then what I know now
I wouldn't have said I don't need you around
Alone in this mess silence is so loud
So I would treat you the best, baby, if I knew then

What I know now, what I know now
What I know now, what I know now
What I know now, what I know now
Yeah, I would treat you the best
Baby, if I knew then what I know now
