I Should Know

I should know that one and one make two
And I should know that skies aren’t always blue
And I should know that colors don’t stay true
They fade away like old friend sometimes do

And I should know that winter brings the snow
And I should know that socks warm up my toes
And I should know what’s planted always grows
And spring will come again that’s what I’ve been told

The sun sets and the moon is in its place
Hanging out there empty lost in space
Changing seasons always right on cue
I wish that I could change the way they do
I wish that I could change

I should know that storm clouds bring the rain
And I should know that strong winds come with change
And I should know that nothing stays the same for long
But when I think of you I know I could be wrong

And I should know to say just what I mean
And I should know that houses don’t stay clean
And I should know that healing comes with time
And happiness is just a state of mind

The sun sets and the moon is in its place
Hanging out there empty lost in space
Changing seasons always right on cue
I wish that I could change the way they do
I wish that I could change

Summer leaves turn brown
What goes up comes back down
I laugh until I cry, I still sit and wonder why,
I wonder why

But I should know there’s war and then there’s peace
And I should know there’s hunger in our streets
And I should know that I can do much more
There’s always someone who’s worth fighting for

The sun sets and the moon is in its place
Hanging out there empty lost in space
Changing seasons always right on cue
I wish that I could change the way they do
I wish that I could change
I wish that I could change the way they do
I wish that I could change
