If I Had Only Known--Lyrics

By Jana Stanfield and Craig Morris

VERSE If I had only known it was our last walk in the rain, I'd keep you out for hours in the storm. I would hold your hand, like a lifeline to my heart, And underneath the thunder we'd be warm. If I had only known it was our last walk in the rain.

VERSE If I had only known I'd never hear your voice again, I'd memorize each thing you ever said. And on these lonely nights, I could think of them once more, And keep your words alive inside my head. If I had only known I'd never hear your voice again.

BRIDGE Come back. Let me hold you one more time. Let me say goodbye.

INSTRUMENTAL

VERSE If I had only known it was my last night in your arms, I'd pray a miracle would stop the dawn. And by the candle's glow I would look into your eyes, And make sure you know my love for you goes on and on; If I had only known,

OUTRO If I had only known. The love I would've shown, If I had only known.



ALTERNATE BRIDGE (the one that Reba McEntire used in her recording) You were the treasure in my heart You were the one who always stood beside me So unaware I foolishly believed that you would always be there But then there came a day when I turned my head And you slipped away

ALTERNATE BRIDGE (the one that Jana sang at Carnigie Hall) Come back, let me hold you one more time, Let me thank you for the difference you made in my life.
