What I Wouldnt Give
WHAT I WOULDN’T GIVE
She wanted a man who’s tender and strong.
She wanted a kiss to build a dream on.
Long walks, sweet talk and candlelight.
She wanted the things that money won’t buy,
but I never saw that look in her eye.
She tried to tell me something wasn’t right.
I let her slip right through my hands.
Lord, if I had just one more chance.
What I wouldn’t give if there was a way
to say all the things I didn’t say.
I gave her the world but I couldn’t see
wbat she really wanted most was me.
Something was missing;
I should have listened
but I guess I never did.
Now, everyday I have to live
with what I wouldn’t give.
That faraway smile; the way that she sighed.
Those tears that I saw but never asked why.
I see it all now, but it’s too late.
So many clues, so many signs ―
how could I have been so blind?
