Better

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 it at least

in her own mind but she knows

She’ll let down her defenses

she’ll lose all control

her own sense of self

as she bargains her soul

away and she’ll compromise

her dreams and desires

As she watches them go

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 still

are all weathered and worn

Like those old 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
