You Never Knew
by Haim

Album: Something To Tell You (2017)
  • It was a weight on my shoulders
    A strain on my back
    But I love to have you, right there by my side
    (You couldn't take it)
    (You couldn't take it)
    It used to be, when we are alone
    We shared such beautiful moments
    (But lately it's been such a mix)
    (You couldn't take it)
    (You couldn't take it)

    Go on and say it
    Was my love too much for you to take?
    I guess you never knew what was good for you
    Don't keep me waiting, say the words that you're too scared to say
    I guess you never knew what was good for you
    I need to hear you say it
    Was my love too much for you to take?
    I guess you never knew what was good for you
    Don't keep me waiting, say the words that you're too scared to say
    I guess you never knew what was good for you

    I came home to see you, you weren't around
    Excuses were one right after the other
    (You couldn't take it)
    (You couldn't take it)
    You woke up from another dream, another fight you didn't mean
    Still, time after time
    I came running to get you
    (You couldn't take it)
    (You couldn't take it)

    Go on and say it
    Was my love too much for you to take?
    I guess you never knew what was good for you
    Don't keep me waiting, say the words that you're too scared to say
    I guess you never knew what was good for you
    I need to hear you say it
    Was my love too much for you to take?
    I guess you never knew what was good for you
    Don't keep me waiting, say the words that you're too scared to say
    I guess you never knew what was good for you

    (You couldn't take it)
    Another heart, another day
    So much time just thrown away
    (You couldn't take it)
    You know I love to be in love
    (You couldn't take it)
    So tired of trying to show you
    I worked so hard

    Go on and say it
    Was my love too much for you to take?
    I guess you never knew what was good for you
    Don't keep me waiting, say the words that you're too scared to say
    I guess you never knew what was good for you
    I need to hear you say it
    Was my love too much for you to take?
    I guess you never knew what was good for you
    Don't keep me waiting, say the words that you're too scared to say
    I guess you never knew what was good for you

    I guess you never knew
    I guess you never knew what was good for you
    I guess you never knew
    I guess you never knew what was good for you
    I guess you never knew
    I guess you never knew what was good for you
    I guess you never knew
    I guess you never knew what was good for you Writer/s: Alana Mychal Haim, Ariel Zvi Rechtshaid, Danielle Sari Haim, Dev Hynes, Este Arielle Haim
