Lyrics
I've been lookin' for peace and quiet
Ever since my baby left me
No more screamin', no more fightin'
No more crazy wrestlin'

But when you strutted in that room
Those memories flew right out the door
Could it be too soon for love
When my heart's still on the floor?

My world started quakin', my lips started shakin'
What's comin' over me?
No, it wasn't supposed to be like this
Wasn't supposed to be like this, no, no, no
Wasn't supposed to be like this

So I scared up the nerve to talk
To see if these feelings were real
You looked me right square in the eye
Gave me a wink and a squeal

And I started sweatin', what's this I'm gettin'?
This can't be happenin' again
No, it wasn't supposed to be like this
Wasn't supposed to be like this, no, no, no
Wasn't supposed to be like this

Well maybe I better crawl back in my shell
Where nothing or no one can hurt me
You know the last time that I fell
I did it all so suddenly (suddenly)

So I choose to take the plunge
To see where this new thing will go
Won't be the first, won't be the last
Time I went with the flow

My mind starts rememberin', my lips start tremblin'
Here it comes again
No, it wasn't supposed to be like this
Wasn't supposed to be like this
Wasn't supposed to be like this
Wasn't supposed to be like this
No, no, no, no, no
I wasn't supposed to be like this
