lyrics

you took a plane down to FLA
you took a picture of him standing in broad day
and i had been there before
but only in my mind
i couldn’t warn either of you in time

oh i just felt like i had died
i knew you didn’t have much time

hindsight is the gift i wish that i could give
hindsight is the gift i wish that i could give

they say that love can conquer anything
the same can’t be true when you’ve got no money to your name
you asked, you pleaded
you practically begged
and i laughed, i cried
i knew it was a waste

oh i just felt like i had died
i knew you didn’t have much time

hindsight is the gift i wish that i could give
hindsight is the gift i wish that i could give

well now you’ve both gone your own ways
and i know what i would have said
if i, if i had told
two southern boys with different games
convenience is the devil’s plaything
oh, you should have known
but you never know

hindsight is the gift i wish that i could give
hindsight is the gift i wish that i could give
hindsight is the gift i wish that i could give
hindsight is the gift i wish that i could give
