Country music star Carly Pearce leans into heartache and hard truths only to emerge more grounded. With “Should’ve Known Better”, the Kentucky native writes about the life she has lived and lessons learned observing the world around her.
Carly reflects, “I’ve discovered a lot about myself over the last year, wrestling with how not to assign so much blame for accepting or overlooking things that in the end know you should’ve known. This song is about finding peace in all kinds of relationships as you figure them out, and hopefully, you’re better for the next.”
Pearce co-wrote “Should’ve Known Better” with Emily Shackelton and Jordan Reynolds. Check out the lyric video below!
“Should’ve Known Better” Lyrics
Still some nights I’m crying on the floor
But I’m not sleeping in the bed you made no more
I gave you my heart, you let it go to waste
You made me do the leaving and you made me take the blame
Does it make you feel good to make me feel bad
Yeah you should’ve known better, should’ve known better
Than to break what you couldn’t fix
Boy what a shame, what you’re gonna miss
Why’d you go and do what you can’t take back
Yeah you should’ve known better, should’ve known better than that
The star’s latest collection, 29, will be released on February 19th!
