Lyrics

How Could I Know?

I haven't seen you since that night.
Sometimes I talk like you're still here.
What happened in that screw-loose moment
Is hangin' in my mind, all too clear.

I said, "Why don't you go get ready?
Let's take a drive down to Big Jake's.
We'll have a few drinks, check out their new band,
And get a couple of tomahawk steaks."

I wasn't thinking anything more
As we headed out the door.

HOW COULD I KNOW how crazy it would get?
HOW COULD I KNOW this night would suck?
That one thing would lead to another, and
Make this the night my love life ran out of luck.

Maybe we both had one too many,
And maybe that's just my excuse.
When you are acting out of your head,
It's so damn easy to blame the juice.

I saw you kissing some strange dude,
A guy I hadn't seen around.
It hit me hard, got my fists a-flyin',
Was goin' all out to take him down.

And then you helped him get up off the floor,
And you headed out the door.

HOW COULD I KNOW how crazy it would get?
HOW COULD I KNOW this night would suck?
That one thing would lead to another, and
Make this the night my love life ran out of luck.


I saw you hop right into his truck,
And watched as the taillights faded out.
Wasn't sure what to make of that reaction.
Was it more sympathy, or more attraction?
But I never thought that winning a fight
Could turn out to be such a bummer night.

HOW COULD I KNOW how crazy it would get?
HOW COULD I KNOW this night would suck?
That one thing would lead to another, and
Make this the night my love life ran out of luck,
The night my love life ran out of luck.
My love life ran out of luck.
