She thinks she’s got it all figured out this time
and she won’t make the same old mistakes
Keeping notes in her mind, she’s thinking next time
she’ll know better, the right steps to take

But she’s just girl
When some guy comes along and he totally rocks her world
All she thought was right will be wrong
And what’s wrong, she’ll justify
At least in her own mind but he knows…

She’ll let down her defenses, she’ll lose all control
Lose all of her sense as she bargains away her soul
As she compromises, watches her dreams and desires
fly right out the window

He knows what she wants to believe so he’ll let her
She’ll tell herself anything if it makes her feel better
forget what she told herself not so long ago
When she was keeping those…

notes in her mind, now tattered and torn
The ones she can find are weathered and worn
like the convictions of that girl she used to know
That girl who told herself so long ago

Next time
Next time I’ll know
Next time I’ll know better
