Lyrics

I Wish I’d Known 

 

That crooked smile played across his cheek

As I passed and waved, was it just last week?

Without words, you could read that smile

But I could have stopped, could have talked awhile.

I wish I’d known.  

I wish I’d known.

 

That moment passed too quickly. Then

Before we’d ever pass again,

Like the winter wind blows a flag unfurled,

That easy smile escaped our world.

I wish I’d known.  

I wish I’d known.

 

I wish I’d known that moment played

Our last hello, I would have stayed

And made hello last a thousand years

Before goodbye, before these tears

That fall and fall,

And fall some more,

For that hello,

It closed the door

On any more.

 

I wish I’d known.

I wish I’d known.

I wish I’d known.
