Song lyrics
Life should be like a game of cards
You make a mistake, shuffle the deck and start over
It should be just like driving in your car
Get lost and your navigation system gets you closer

But there ain't no handbook
You're on your own
Got no instructions
When it comes to love
Cause once you do something
'Can't be undone
Wish I could take back
Letting you go

If I knew then
What I know now
I wouldn't have said
I don't need you around
Alone in this bed
The silence is so loud
So I would treat you the best
Baby, if I knew then
What I know now (what I know now)
What I know now (what I know now)
What I know now (what I know now)
Yeah, I would treat you the best
Baby, if I knew then
What I know now

Life should come with remote controls
Then I could rewind it to the time it was better
It should have a restart button so
I could travel right back to the day that I met her

But there ain't no handbook
You're on your own
Got no instructions
When it comes to love
'Cause when you do something (oh)
Can't be undone (oh)
Wish I could take back
Letting you go

If I knew then
What I know now
I wouldn't have said
I don't need you around
Alone in this bed
The silence is so loud
So I would treat you the best
Baby, if I knew then
What I know now (what I know now)
What I know now (what I know now)
What I know now (what I know now)
Yeah, I would treat you the best
Baby, if I knew then
What I know now

Oh, oh, oh, yeah
'Cause there ain't no handbook (handbook)
You're on your own (your own)
Got no instructions (instructions)
When it comes to love (to love)
See once you do something (you do)
Can't be undone (undone)
Wish I could take back
Letting you go

If I knew then
What I know now
I wouldn't have said
I don't need you around
Alone in this bed
The silence is so loud
So I would treat you the best
Baby, if I knew then
What I know now (what I know now)
What I know now (what I know now)
What I know now (what I know now)
Yeah, I would treat you the best
Baby, if I knew then
What I know now

What I know now
I wouldn't have said
I don't need you around
Alone in this bed
The silence is so loud
So I would treat you the best
Baby, if I knew then
What I know now (what I know now)
What I know now (what I know now)
What I know now (what I know now)
Yeah, I would treat you the best
Baby, if I knew then
What I know now
