If I Had Only Known


I Remember so clear
that last day in May
and the last I love you
that you would ever say

I remember our walk
on the Georgia street
I can still feel the cobblestone
beneath my feet

I feel your hand in mine
your arm about me tight
Oh how could I have known
it to be our final night

Oh how could I have known
it would be the last night
I would lay by your side
and you would hold me tight

If I had only known
the daily hurt was to begin
would I have done differenly
at the start would I have let you in

Oh the unknown road
I was about to embark
I had no idea
my life could be so dark

Never would I have dreamed
that final day in May
The hell you soon would place
in my life to forever stay

Your reasoning why
Oh how can I know
When silence is all you give
with each crashing blow

Your actions say be gone
Yet you cling dearly to our only tie
What is it you are after
There are no more tears when I cry.

I have spent them all
on pain you insiste to cast
I just want to be set free
to return to my past

If I had only known
the pain that was about to stay
If I had only known
would I have let you drive away

Oh if I had only known....
