BETTER BY NOW
By Benjamin Dakota Rogers



Ain’t it funny /
How all the stars are out tonight /
Shining down like kerosene lights /
Sending sailors safely home and sinners to bed /
And driving the monsters out from inside your head /

But I really ought to know better by now /
I really ought to know better by now /
I really ought to know better by now /
But damn it I don’t /
Yeah baby I don’t /

Ain’t it funny /
How I can’t even say her name /
And I would if I could but I can’t it only brings me pain /
‘Cause you’re not bad you’re just bad for me /
You left me begging at your door like a dog looking for something to eat /

I really ought to know better by now /
I really ought to know better by now /
I really ought to know better by now /
But damn it I don’t /
Damn it I don’t /
Damn it I don’t /
Yeah baby I don’t /

You said I’d always be your home /
You said you’d never go /
You said I’d always be your home /
You said you’d never go /

I really ought to know better by now /
I really ought to know better by now /
I really ought to know better by now /
But damn it I don’t /
Yeah baby I don’t
