Paroles It's The Not Knowing

Le - Par .

It's not that you might leave me lonely
I know I could cope if your heart became a ghost
I know what to do when I'm on my own
It's the not knowing, that hurts, the most

It's not that if you told me you met someone better
Or if you had to break a promise, break an oath
If you prefer to feel some other's touch
It's the not knowing, that hurts, the most

In your silence, I sense a thousand words
Your eyes are sad but you still smile
You're right beside me, but are you even here

It's the not knowing, that hurts, the most
It's the not knowing, that hurts, the most

I'm sure you meant all that you said, at the time
I believe you can't be made of stone
We both know it's OK to change your mind
It's just the not knowing, that hurts, the most

In your silence, I sense a thousand words
Your eyes are sad but you still smile
You're right beside me, but are you even here

It's just the not knowing, that hurts, the most

I can tell, your head is somewhere else
I can read the signs that I need help
I can take your truth, tell me
Tell me what I know
Don't be a coward boy
Let me free just, let me go

We haven't said it but I know it
So hold me one last time before you go
You gave me so much to remember, baby
It was just the not knowing, that hurt the most
