Should Have Known Better
Sufjan Stevens Lyrics


I should have known better
To see what I could see
My black shroud
Holding down my feelings
A pillar for my enemies

I should have wrote a letter
And grieve what I happen to grieve
My black shroud
I never trust my feelings
I waited for the remedy

When I was three, three maybe four
She left us at that video store
Oh, be my rest, be my fantasy
Oh, be my rest, be my fantasy

I'm light as a feather
I'm bright as the Oregon breeze
My black shroud
Frightened by my feelings
I only wanna be a relief

No, I'm not a go-getter
The demon had a spell on me
My black shroud
Captain of my feelings
The only thing I wanna believe

When I was three, and free to explore
I saw her face on the back of the door
Oh, be my rest, be my fantasy
Oh, be my rest, be my fantasy

I should have known better
Nothing can be changed
The past is still the past
The bridge to nowhere
I should have wrote a letter
Explaining what I feel, that empty feeling

Don't back down, concentrate on seeing
The breakers in the bar, the neighbor's greeting
My brother had a daughter
The beauty that she brings, illumination

Don't back down, there is nothing left
The breakers in the bar, no reason to live
I'm a fool in the fetter
Rose of Aaron's beard, where you can reach me

Don't back down, nothing can be changed
Cantilever bridge, the drunken sailor
My brother had a daughter
The beauty that she brings, illumination
Illumination

I should have known better
To see what I could see

My black shroud

Holding down my feelings

A pillar for my enemies


I should have wrote a letter

And grieve what I happen to grieve

My black shroud

I never trust my feelings

I waited for the remedy


When I was three, three maybe four

She left us at that video store

Oh, be my rest, be my fantasy

Oh, be my rest, be my fantasy


I'm light as a feather

I'm bright as the Oregon breeze

My black shroud

Frightened by my feelings

I only wanna be a relief


No, I'm not a go-getter

The demon had a spell on me

My black shroud

Captain of my feelings

The only thing I wanna believe


When I was three, and free to explore

I saw her face on the back of the door

Oh, be my rest, be my fantasy

Oh, be my rest, be my fantasy

The past is still the past

The bridge to nowhere

Don't back down, nothing can be changed

Cantilever bridge, the drunken sailor
