He Should Have Known - Poem by arianna strickland

GIRL PART/
/
He should have known./
Should have known that he would break her./
Should have known that she wasn't ready./
That she was scared./
That she was new at everything./
/
CHORUSE/
Now she is cold./
Now she is hard./
Cause now she is diffrent from before./
She can't even hold him./
She can't stand by and watch./
She needs something./
Something to hold on to./
And shes searching./
/
He should have guessed./
Should have guessed that she would crumble./
Should have guessed that she would fall./
That she would cry./
That she would give him anything./
/
CHORUSE/
/
He should have tryed./
Should have tryed to stop her./
Should have tryed to help her./
Tryed to save her./
Tryed to lessen the pain./
/
CHORUSE/
/
BOY PART/
/
How could I have known? /
Could have known that I would break her? /
Could have known that she wasn't ready? /
That she was scared? /
That she was new at everything? /
/
CHORUSE/
She was always so warm./
She was always so soft./
Cause she never really changed./
She always held me./
She always just stood and watched
She didn't need anything./
Anything to hold on to./
She never went searching./
/
How could I have guessed? /
Guessed that she was crumbling? /
Guessed that she wwas falling? /
That she was crying? /
That she gave me everything? /
/
CHORUSE/
/
I thought tryed so hard./
Thought I tryed to stop her./
Thought I tryed to help her./
Tryed to save her./
Tryed to lessen the pain./
/
CHORUSE/
/
GIRL PART/BOY PART/
/ We both should have known./
Should have known that we would get hurt./
Should have known we wern't ready./
Known that we were to young./
Known that we shouldn't have done what we did./
/
CHORUSE/
Now we are both hurt./
Now we are both strange./
Cause now we are diffrent then before./
We both need something./
Something to hold on to./
And we are searching./
/
We should have guessed./
Should have guessed it would turn out the way it did./
Should have guessed that we would get burned./
Guessed that we would move on./
Guessed that we would never forget./
/
CHORUSE/
/
We should have tryed./
Should have tryed to make it work out./
Should have tryed to forget it./
Tryed to not do it./
Tryed to see through it./
/
CHORUSE/
/
Oh! Yes we are searching./
Searching for what we already lost./
For what we threw away./
For what we threw away./
