Couldn’t see what I couldn’t see right before my eyes
Didn’t doubt what I believed and couldn’t tell you why
Wouldn’t hear what I wouldn’t hear not a whisper not a shout
You said it loud and clear but I knew how to tune you out

I didn’t know what I didn’t know of course I know that now
I had to learn the hard way the only way that I know how
Baby please forgive me don’t turn around and go
I didn’t mean to hurt you I didn’t know what I didn’t know

Couldn’t tell what I couldn’t tell and you couldn’t tell me anything
Followed you down to the water but you couldn’t make me drink
Didn’t do what I said I’d do I guess that all I can say
Now I’m looking at losing you I hope it’s not too late

I didn’t know what I didn’t know of course I know that now
I had to learn the hard way the only way that I know how
Baby please forgive me don’t turn around and go
I didn’t mean to hurt you I didn’t know what I didn’t know

I didn’t know how to love you
I didn’t know how much I do
Tell me we’re not breakin’ up
I swear I’ll make it up to you
