​You Don't Know What's Going On

This song is by Nickel Creek and appears on the album A Dotted Line (2014).

Well it's time for me to live the good life on the road
And to forgive her for the lies that she sold me
We're fallen in love and that's what you do
I didn't know and I feel like a fool
Now watching her go 'cause I play by the rules I guess we were above
And that's what I get for trying my best

To believe it hurts
You believe I can turn it around
And keep bailing out the water while the ship went down
I keep calling her name when we started to drown
You can tell me I should've known better
You can ask me why
I didn't see it coming till it got inside me
You can say it's all right
You can think it's all wrong
But you don't know what's going on
You don't know what's going on

So the road led to your door
The good life ain't the good life anymore
If it doesn't include you, if you send me away
'Cause you don't believe I tried my best

To believe it hurts
You believe I can turn it around
And keep bailing out the water while the ship went down
You keep calling her name when we started to drown
You can tell me I should've known better
You can ask me why
I didn't see it coming till it got inside me
You can think it's all wrong
I can hope it's all right
But I don't know what's going on
I just know that

I tried and I tried and I'll try for you
If you want me to
If you could be the girl
Who believes in me
Who believes I can turn it around
Who keeps bailing out the water while the ship goes down
Who keeps calling my name when we're starting to drown
I'll never tell you you should've known better
Never ask you why
You didn't see it coming till it got inside you
It could turn out all right or it could turn out all wrong
Just don't know what's going on
I don't know what's going on
You don't know what's going on
You don't know what's going on
