I Should Know

I know that someone just broke your heart,

And starting over is the hardest part.

You’re feeling lost now,

But you’ll make it somehow.

I should know.


You say your one love is packed and gone.

So what’s the point of hanging on?

But I can promise

You’ll get beyond this.

I should know.


You may think no one else gets beaten,

And life treats other people fair.

You aren’t the only one who’s bleedin’.

I should know ’cause I’ve been there.


Sometimes the brambles can leave a scar.

But things won’t always be like they are.

Those could-or-should blues

Will turn to good news.

I should know.
