Lori McKenna — “That’s How You Know” Lyrics


(“That’s How You Know” is from Lori McKenna’s album Lorraine. Additional Lori McKenna lyrics can be found here.)
That’s How You Know

When you take the train to mid-town and have coffee by yourself
Pull the pictures from the drawer and put them back up on the shelf
When you hear the sound of church bells and it don’t make you want to cry
You’re not getting drunk just so you can hide

That’s how you know
That’s how you know

When you open up the curtains, start answering the phone
Stop driving around for hours ’cause you hate going home
You can talk about it, even say their name
When you start thinking you’ll survive even though you’ll never be the same

That’s how you know
That’s how you know
That’s how you know
That’s how you know

There’s no such thing as a long goodbye,
When you wish it would have lasted your whole life

You don’t need a cigarette or a pill to help you sleep
When you don’t end every night on the hard wood on your knees
When you wake up one morning surprised to see the world exists
And your eyes ain’t full of tears and your heart ain’t full of bitterness

That’s how you know
That’s how you know
That’s how you know
That’s how you know

When you’re thankful that you ever knew a love this strong
When you finally find the courage to write this song

That’s how you know
That’s how you know

That’s how you know you’re moving on.
