  • When I think of all I put you through
    Always taking you for granted
    I never saw it from your point of view
    Blinded by the double standard

    You were tryin' to tell me all along
    Something in the love was missing
    You said "It's not too late to get it back"
    But I just wasn't listening

    If I knew back then what I know now
    If I understood the what, when, why and how
    Now it's clear to me
    What I should have done
    But hindsight is 20/20 vision

    Now I see it in a different light
    I've been losin' you in stages
    Give us one more chance
    I'll get it right
    Girl, you're gonna see some changes

    If I knew back then what I know now
    If I understood the what, when, why and how
    Now it's clear to me
    What I should have done
    But hindsight is 20/20 vision

    Takin' time to catch up on some history
    Tryin' to figure out what went wrong
    With you and me
    And it doesn't really matter
    What's been before
    But I know there's no future
    With you walkin' out that door Writer/s: Randy Goodrum, Stephen Alan Kipner, Stephen Kipner
