Wiser Than You

Album: If You Knew Suzi (1978)
  • You messed my mind
    Destroyed my soul
    How was I to know about the power of love
    You were wiser and older than me
    How you touched my heart
    Then you ripped it apart
    You changed an innocent smile and girlish laughter into crying eyes over night

    Good luck I hope you realize
    What I gave to you
    A virgin's love
    A child of trust
    Makin' love was something new
    You found me so young
    And taught me all you knew
    But I'm leaving 'cause I'm wiser than you

    I remember when
    I thought you were my friend
    I believed all those lies you said
    She doesn't understand
    You're the only one for me
    Secret rendezvous
    Stolen nights for two
    Then suddenly something happened and I realized
    I'd given it all to you

    Good luck I hope you realize
    What I gave to you
    A virgin's love
    A child of trust
    Makin' love was something new
    You found me so young
    And taught me all you knew
    But I'm leaving 'cause I'm wiser than you

    Good luck I hope you realize
    What I gave to you
    A virgin's love
    A child of trust
    Makin' love was something new
    You found me so young
    And taught me all you knew
    But I'm leaving 'cause I'm wiser than you

    Good luck I hope you realize
    What I gave to you
    A virgin's love
    A child of trust
    Makin' love was something new
    You found me so young
    And taught me all you knew
    But I'm leaving 'cause I'm wiser than you Writer/s: LEN TUCKEY, SUZIE QUATRO
