lyrics

I thought that writing songs
was what I was supposed to do
And if I sang em long enough
the words just might get through
to the man that Ive been searching for
so lonely I have been
I’ve almost died and nearly tried
to forget how to sing

Despite the inspiration that will strike me
like a lightning bolt from heaven up on high
I get so goddamn weary
when these words wont let me be
Id rather drink myself to sleep and cry

Chorus:
If you could only know how much it hurts
if you could only know how hard I try
I wouldn't be here standing on the corner
waiting for the one to pass me by

I read the letters that you sent with teary eyes
the words you wrote so untrue to my mind
and tho I love you I cannot help but to despise
all the ways in which you’ve treated me unkind

Chorus:
If you could only know how much it hurts
if you could only know how hard I try
I wouldn't be here standing on the corner
waiting for the one to pass me by

I heard the other day you sold your guitar
the one you always told me would be mine
I’ll never play it again till I’m up there in the stars
and they lay me down in that old box of pine

Chorus:
If you could only know how much it hurts
if you could only know how hard I try
I wouldn't be here standing on the corner
waiting for the one to pass me by
