They never told you at school
they never told you anything
that would be any used to you
not now
like how to be fair
or how to behave with someone
or how to get by when your memories
all hurt so much

if you didn't want this pain
you shouldn't fall in love
you knew the risk
you took the chance
you let it happen
if you don't want this pain
you shouldn't ever fall in love again

and all of your friends
they said "go on son, get in there
you've got nothing to lose
at all"

they never said how you'd pay
for every kiss with a year of regret
or how you'd be left with a body
that remembers everything

if you don't want this pain
you shouldn't fall in love
you knew the risk
you took the chance
you let it happen, you let it happen
if you don't want this pain
you shouldn't ever fall in love again

and even at The Flaming Lips
you were jealous
of some little miss
who meant nothing at all

if Bergman hasn't solved it
Woody Allen hasn't solved it
then what chance have you got?

if you don't want this pain
you shouldn't fall in love
you knew the risk
you took the chance
you let it happen, you let it happen
if you don't want this pain
you shouldn't ever fall in love again

if you don't want this pain
you shouldn't fall in love
you knew the risk
you took the chance
you let it happen, you let it happen
if you don't want this pain
you shouldn't ever fall in love again
not again
