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 a girl,
when some guy comes along
and he totally rocks her world,
all that was right will be wrong,

And what’s wrong, she’ll justify,
at least in her own mind,
but she knows,

She’ll let down her defenses,
she’ll lose all control,
lose all of her sense as
she wagers her soul,

she’ll make compromises,
give up on her goals,
her dreams and desires fly
right out the window,

He knows what she wants
to believe so he’ll let her,
and 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,
all weathered and worn,

The wavering convictions
of a girl she used to know,
that girl who told herself
next time I’ll know.
