I Wondered If You Knew
I feel it was my fault that we didn't last as long as I thought we could have
Maybe if I was more open with my feelings, maybe then we would have
The small amount of time we spent together was unlike the rest of my life
And the pain I felt when you left me cut me unlike any other knife
The pain turned into blame, I blamed you - told myself that you used me
And even though I still have a little of that feeling left, I now put some of the blame on me
I didn't show you how much I cared about you - didn't even tell you
I waited for you to hold my hand, waited for you to kiss me out of the blue
I waited for you to say you missed me - and still couldn’t say it in return
I waited for you to talk about our relationship - and when you finally did it burned
But I didn't let you see the pain I felt - didn't want you to know how much I cared, after the fact
So I simply went on with my day - holding back my tears, putting on an act
I sit here doubting that you ever knew what my feelings once were
Doubting you ever knew how much I cared for you, doubting that for sure
I’m over you now, I have been for the longest time
But I wondered if you knew what you should have would you still be mine
If you knew I then woke everyday just wanting to hear your voice
If you knew I then spoke of you constantly - would you still have made that choice
If you could have read my mind you would have known you were all I thought
If I knew if you knew how I felt I wouldn’t have just said "okay" I would’ve fought
But I don’t regret that past - because we’re both so happy now with whom we now have
I just wondered if you knew the love from me you once had
