  • When will I learn to stop me making the same mistakes again?
    Same mistakes again for you
    When will I learn to lock my heart so it doesn't break again? No
    Doesn't break again in two

    I should've known, should've known by now
    That I was always gonna come back around
    Back in the day, you know you let me down
    Thought maybe I finally figured you out

    'Cause you said that things would be different
    But all that turned out to be fiction
    Breaking dishes in the kitchen
    Walking on glass, babe
    You say it's space that you're needing
    I say, "Well fuck it, I'm leaving"
    But history keeps on repeating

    When will I learn to stop me making the same mistakes again?
    Same mistakes again for you
    When will I learn to lock my heart so it doesn't break again? No
    Doesn't break again in two

    When will I learn that I, I can do better?
    I can do better, much better than you
    When will I learn to stop me making the same mistakes again?
    Over and over again, over and over again

    I'm all out of new words to say (words to say)
    Runnin' on empty, out of reasons to stay (To stay)
    My friends told me it would go this way
    They call me stupid when I say that you've changed

    But you said that things would be different
    But all that turned out to be fiction
    History keeps on repeating

    When will I learn to stop me making the same mistakes again?
    Same mistakes again for you
    When will I learn to lock my heart so it doesn't break again? No
    Doesn't break again in two

    When will I learn that I, I can do better?
    I can do better, much better than you
    When will I learn to stop me making the same mistakes again?
    Over and over again, over and over again

    I should know better, I should know better
    I should know better, tell me why, yeah
    I can't remember, I can't remember
    The way it hurts me every time

    When will I learn that I, I can do better?
    I can do better, much better than you
    When will I learn to stop me making the same mistakes again?
    Over and over again, over and over again

    When will I learn to stop me making the same mistakes again?
    Same mistakes again for you
    When will I learn to lock my heart so it doesn't break again? No
