lyrics

I’ll lay it out and make it simple for a simpleton to see
Call it easy, that won’t make it easy like it ought to be
I want to make this clear for both of us tonight
We can’t make this right

(CHORUS)
Cause it’s never quite as simple as “I told you so”
No, it’s never quite as simple as “I told you so”
And it’s never what you want until you’ve lost your hold
No, it’s never quite as simple as “I told you so”

We cover messes with forgiveness and excuses not to leave
But then we always end up right back where we are and shouldn’t be
When ever stone is turned and mud still lines the ground
And there’s no way around…

(CHORUS)

(Bridge)
Because I told you so
And we tried…

You won’t apologize and I won’t wait for you to make amends
I want your love, but I don’t want it if it’s only as a friend
We gave it everything, but nothing’s quite enough

But it’s never quite that simple when you’re letting go
No, it’s never quite that simple when I’m letting go
And it’s never what you want until you’ve lost your hold
No, it’s never quite as simple as I told you so
I told you so.
