  • I'd rather be cold
    Than wrapped up in love
    Can't seem to get it right
    Can't seem to get it right
    Fill me up
    And still leave me a little dry
    Love comes and cleans you out
    Love's got an enemy now

    How can I forget about the past?
    So easily and start again

    How do you know?
    How do you know?
    When you've given him everything
    And he still made a mess of things
    How do you know, know know know?

    Oh, it feels so good in the moment
    But it's just the moment, that'll soon be over
    Once my thoughts are sober
    And I'll trade it all love just to believe again
    Looking for reasons why its never the right time

    How do I forget about the past?
    So easily and start again

    How do you know?
    How do you know?
    When you've given him everything
    And he still made a mess of things
    How do you know?

    We don't understand it's worth until it hurts
    Sometimes we're so blinded
    And always reminded
    What's all the fear made me mess it up again
    Maybe it was me, maybe it was him
    But I just don't know
    Don't know which way to go

    How do you know?
    How do you know?
    When you've given him everything
    And you still made a mess of things
    How do you know, know know know? Writer/s: BIANCA ATTERBERRY, BRANDON HODGES, KIMBERLY PATE, RONNIE JACKSON, TIMOTHY BLOOM
