Shoulda Known Better

Shoulda Known Better

Unwritten Law

I shoulda known better
Nothing lasts forever

It all started out in a tan Dodge van
Two hundred bucks that we stole from her dad
Out the back of his meth lab
Took the 45, out demand that

Livid Bonnie, 'bout to be a mommy
Came to California with Johnny
They had a run in with the law
She shoulda listened to her ma

And she said we'd be together
(She said)
She used the word 'Forever'
(She said)

Oh, my lovely lover
(She said)
Why had I love to love her?
I, I shoulda known better
Nothing lasts forever, yeah, lasts forever

I shoulda known better
(Ooh, better)
I shoulda known better
(Ooh, better)
I shoulda known

Abortion clinic, I shoulda forced the issue
But she did it with the hanger and some tissue
Don't cry, dry your eye
(She said)
I'll be back on my feet tonight
(She said)

I'll be walking the street tonight
(She said)
'Cause these arms gotta eat tonight
Then we made love like a couple of drunk buffalo
Was I rough enough?

It was the last time I'd ever see her
I'd try to thank her with gonorrhea
But then she split and stole my sweater
Dude, I shoulda known better

I, I shoulda known better
Nothing lasts forever, yeah, lasts forever
Shoulda known better

Shoulda ended in the tan Dodge van
With two hundred dollars worth of partying
But instead I'm sitting on Sunset
Selling my soul for a hit, yeah, what next?

Yeah, I shoulda known better
Nothing lasts forever, yeah, lasts forever
When you said you'd never leave and we'd be together
Nothing lasts forever, nothing ever lasts forever

Shoulda known better
(Ooh, better)
I shoulda known better
(Ooh, better)

I shoulda known better
(Ooh, better)
I shoulda known better
(Ooh, better)
I shoulda known
