YOU OUGHT TO KNOW BY ALANIS MORISSETTE

YOU OUGHT TO KNOW BY ALANIS MORISSETTE

LYRICS

I want you to know, that I am happy for you
I wish nothing but the best for you both
An older version of me
Is she perverted like me?
Would she go down on you in a theater?
Does she speak eloquently
And would she have your baby?
I’m sure she’d make a really excellent mother
‘Cause the love that you gave that we made
Wasn’t able to make it enough for you
To be open wide, no
And every time you speak her name
Does she know how you told me
You’d hold me until you died
‘Til you died, but you’re still alive
And I’m here, to remind you
Of the mess you left when you went away
It’s not fair, to deny me
Of the cross I bear that you gave to me
You, you, you oughta know
You seem very well, things look peaceful
I’m not quite as well, I thought you should know
Did you forget about me, Mr. Duplicity?
I hate to bug you in the middle of dinner
It was a slap in the face
How quickly I was replaced
And are you thinking of me when you fuck her?
‘Cause the love that you gave that we made
Wasn’t able to make it enough for you
To be open wide, no
And every time you speak her name
Does she know how you told me
You’d hold me until you died
‘Til you died, but you’re still alive
And I’m here, to remind you
Of the mess you left when you went away
It’s not fair, to deny me
Of the cross I bear that you gave to me
You, you, you oughta know
‘Cause the joke that you laid in the bed
That was me and I’m not gonna fade
As soon as you close your eyes, and you know it
And every time I scratch my nails
Down someone else’s back I hope you feel it
Well, can you feel it?
And I’m here, to remind you
Of the mess you left when you went away
It’s not fair, to deny me
Of the cross I bear that you gave to me
You, you, you oughta know

You oughta know
how you destroyed
the love we had
null and void

how could you deceive me?
Cheat and bereave me
you destroyed us, made a mess
Felt she was more, I was less

How dare you treat me
as if I don’t exist
You ride a thin line
passed me up on your list

I thought you should know
how I really feel
You destroyed us
my love you killed

Go now you are a villain
playing in the weeds
You are part of
The devils seed

Introspective
Quiet
Thinking about you & me
How it was
Yet never again will be
& I wish you love
I wish you both well
It’s obvious to see
She has u under her spell
I hope she makes you happy
Gives you what you crave
& I’ll just walk away
Pretending to be brave

Remember halcyon days
When u were mine
I believed our love
Was of a divine design
The kitschy way
Our hearts combined
Magic in the air
As stars aligned
Does the world spin
Like a gaudy carousel
When u kiss her lips
Pray do tell
Does ur heart beat fast
Is ur new love
meant 2 last?

From street corners to caves turned into bars I’ve sang this song I’ve screamed and jumped turned my pain into a lyrical landslide. Remembering the lives and the lies the mess left when people play with your soul tides. Burn the bridges and gateways those slaps in the face when you quickly replaced used to say I’d be your bride now the cross I used to wear dangles across her breasts when she rides. Thrown in your face it was time for a goodbye but I can’t stop thinking about the way you tried to make me hide, told me… Read more »

I was ur 1st love
I was ur only love
Until I wasnt
You replaced me
With a poor facsimile
But lets be honest
She’ll never really be me
I’ll sweetly smile
In all the right places
Nod my head
I hide my sad faces
But u oughtta know
She cant ever be me
Just a poor wretched facsimile

I pick up sea shells
my heart swells
you left me to whimper
in this pervasive scent
of hollowed promises
memorized in your goodbye..

Comforted in her embrace
delight away your disgrace
i hope she loves
the pleasures in your eyes
blinding splendour
of deceit and lies.
