Now You Know

An Area40 mournful ballad describing the realisation of betrayal in a relationship:

Now you know ...

A slip of the tongue A word out of place The realisation in your eyes

The truth hit hard When I put it together A fool in love I was blind to your lies

You can't see, what I see And you can't feel, what I feel Now you know ...

Save your breath Your apology's worthless Empty words can't undo the wrong

Now you know ...

Back in the day I loved you forever But it seems forever ain't so long

So let me see, so let me be So set me free, I wanna be Now you know ...

Your bags in the hall A taxi is waiting So you can go finish what you've begun

Now you know ...

If he makes you sad If he makes you lonely Just reach out and I'll be gone

Nearest Exit

Older man - Younger woman scenario ...

Metal in her mouth Ink is on her arms Certainly not his idea Of traditional charms

Arrived unexpectedly Incarnation of his dreams Replacing the complacency Of marital unease

He’s older than her father She’s younger than his son Believing in an instant They both found their only one

Remember the nearest exit maybe behind you Is there time to chance your escape Well the sun never sets at 7 o’clock in the springtime Is there time to chance your escape

Hopeless romantics Kissing in the shadows Aliases and motel rooms Silhouettes at the windows

Her sparkling eyes can see The lines he cannot read Soon cracks in the relationship Deep as cracks in his skin

Remember the nearest exit maybe behind you Is there time to chance your escape Well the sun never sets at 7 o’clock in the springtime Is there time to chance your escape

Motherhood will entrance her The bond she’d never found That child might bind them Retirement plans never left the ground

So she calls it a day Though loving him still No longer willing to pay the price Of such a lonely deal

Remember the nearest exit maybe behind you Is there time to chance your escape Well the sun never sets at 7 o’clock in the springtime Is there time to chance your escape
