i should have Listened

Please tell me if it's true 
Is it possible that you 
Have lied to me again 
With no reason in the end 

Left me broken hearted 
Achieving what you wanted 
Is this the way you play? 
The girls that come your way?

I should have listened to my Mother, 
My sister and my brother 
When they said I would be stuck 
With a man I could not trust 

I know that life's not fair 
There are times when we must bear 
That life is not for me 
I'd better if I'm free 

chrous 

I should have listened to my mother, 
My sister and my brother 
When they said I would be stuck 
With a man I could not trust 

Sometimes the answer is where 
You least expect to find it 
My family was always there 
I just didn't realize it 

chrous 

I should have listened to my Mother, 
My sister and my brother 
When they said I would be stuck 
With a man I could not trust

    Mary, this was a sad, yet strong reality check of a piece. Live & learn, that's how we win in the end.
