  • How was I supposed to know he was a heartbreaker
    I didn't know, I couldn't know
    I lay naked on the floor and I want it back
    How was I supposed to know, oh I oh Lord, what sweet things
    Yeah I, oh Lord

    How was I supposed to know you'd give me my heartache
    Mama couldn't tell me about the feeling
    And all them lovesick songs,
    Well they got true meaning
    Oh why oh why did it happen
    Drive me wild babe
    How was I supposed to know you'd give me my heartache

    How was I supposed to know you was a heartbreaker
    Oh I didn't know, I didn't know
    Now I'm lonely, give up slowly
    And I want it back

    Who ever said that we two were never meant
    I tell you how I know you wrong
    I f***ed you on
    I know that way things are
    I fight the planet

    Why why did happen, oh why babe
    How was I supposed to know you were my heartbreaker
    How was I supposed to know he was a heartbreaker
    Oh I didn't know, I didn't know
    I was gonna go with you
    And I wanna die

    Oh I wanted to grow old with you
    You told me so, but then you go
    How was I supposed to know Writer/s: Brittany Amber Howard, Heath Allen Fogg, Steven William Johnson, Zachary Riley Cockrell
