I Wish You Knew
Written by The Louvin Brothers




I wish you knew how hard I've tried to tell you,
How hard I've tried to get you off my mind,
I wish you knew how hard I've tried to sleep at night,
Since I found that you're no longer mine,
Since you let another beat my time.


If only half the things were true you say about my heart,
Then I would have forgotten you since we've been apart,
You said I forced my lips to kiss you when we said goodbye,
You even said I forced the tears that came into my eyes.



There's not a thought that could be worse than knowing that you're gone,
But in the picture in your mind I'm never all alone,
You see me in another's arms just like I've been with you,
But the way I cry for you each night I only wish you knew.
