  • If I knew
    That would be the last time
    I would have held you, much closer
    If I Knew

    If I knew
    That would be the last time
    I should have kissed you, so much deeper
    If I knew

    I wish I'd lingered
    A little longer with my gaze
    I wish I'd told you all the things
    I couldn't say
    But want to say
    For the rest of my days

    If I knew
    That would be the last time
    I would have tried to remember
    The warmth of your hand
    Your skin on mine
    To touch you one last time
    To say goodbye

    If only I knew
