How Were We To Know Lyrics

[Intro: Emeli Sandé]
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
Oh, oh-oh, oh-oh

[Verse 1: Emeli Sandé]
I won't think about it
'Cause I don't know how to handle this sh!t
Yeah, we both could've done better
But come on, come on

[Chorus: Emeli Sandé]
How were we to know? (Oh)
How were we to grow? (Oh)
We gave it all we had
So come on, don't feel bad
'Cause how were we to know? (Oh)

[Verse 2: Emeli Sandé]
Please, don't
Come 'round to my place
'Cause I don't
Want you to see me like this
We know, it ended in disaster
But we tried, we tried

[Chorus: Emeli Sandé]
But how were we to know? (Oh)
How were we to grow? (Oh)
We gave it all we had
So come on, don't feel bad
See, how were we to know?
How were we to know?

[Bridge: Emeli Sandé]
We could've done better but sooner or later
We stopped our love letters, it means that we ...?
Standing in front of us, staring us dead in the eye
We should've been patient but who the hell's got any time
To be patient when it's just a matter of time, of time?

[Chorus: Emeli Sandé]
But how were we to know? (Oh)
How were we to grow? (Oh)
We gave it all we had
So come on, don't feel bad
See, how were we to know? (Oh)

[Outro: Emeli Sandé]
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
Oh, oh-oh, oh-oh
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
Oh, oh-oh, oh-oh
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
Oh, oh-oh, oh-oh
