I Should Have Known Better

from The Beatles by Loren Radis



"I Should Have Known Better" works on a really superficial level as a song about young love, being surprised how deeply in love you've fallen with a girl who was just a crush. Maybe the author thought it would be a short relationship, a one-night stand even. But he's surprised to find he can't pull himself away. For a long time that's all the song meant to me. It's pretty versatile though; my wife and I just had our first child, a little girl. And when I think of this song in relation to her, well, I never knew I could love a girl as much as I love my daughter. I love everything that she does, and even though it's so vastly different from the romantic love the song was probably written about, it fits perfectly.
