If I Didn't Know Better Lyrics

by The Civil Wars

If I didn't know better I'd hang my hat right there
If I didn't know better I'd follow you up the stairs

Stop saying those sweet things you know I like to hear
The horns are blowing louder, the bailliff's drawing near
Why do I keep drinking
Wasting my time on you
If I didn't know better
But damnit
I do

There's a hole in what you're saying
I can plainly see
You've a lover that's waiting but baby you're right here with me

Ooh
You might as well be the devil
Keeping me out past three
When you're the one with that apple but baby you can't blame me

ooh Why don't you keep drinking
Give me one night with you
If I didn't know better
But damnit
I do

Why do I keep drinking
wasting my time on you
If I didn't know better
But damnit
I do

Oh
Baby I do
Baby you're right here with me
Sweet daddy you know that I do
