I Thought You Knew

Album: The Sound of a Million Dreams (2011)
  • I'll follow you like a bridge to the end of the world
    I take you with me everywhere I go girl
    But you ran from love like a bullet from a gun
    Lead powder burned my heart deep as this desert sun
    You never told me it was over
    You never told me anything at all

    Now I'm out on the road and asking myself why
    I never told you that my love was true
    Well, I thought you knew
    Yeah, I thought you knew

    Heard it from the motel man, you were here two nights ago
    That means I'm closing in on my last chance to let you know
    That I'm sorry girl for the things I guess I didn't say
    But I'll keep searching for you 'til my dying day

    Now I'm out on the road and asking myself why
    I never told you that my love was true
    Well, I thought you knew

    I thought you knew I meant forever
    Even though I never said the things I needed to
    But I'm out on the road and asking myself why

    I'm out on the road and asking myself why
    I never told you that my love was true
    But I thought you knew, yeah I thought you knew
    Girl, I thought you knew, yeah, I thought you knew

    As the sunlight fades and the sky turns black from blue
    I know one of those sets of taillights just might be you Writer/s: CHARLES KELLEY, DAVE HAYWOOD, DAVID NAIL, DAVID WESLEY HAYWOOD, RICHARD BELMONT (MONTY) POWELL
