How could I know

  Single - 1984    
How could I know
Musik: Harry Tschebiner
Text: Richard W. Palmer-James
   


A diamond ring breaks up the light
And bans the shadows from my sight
Shine on, diamonds I have seen
Happiness we shared in a dream

You bound this ring around my heart
And swore out loud we’d never part
I don’t care who takes the blame
In the end you’ll win just the same

How could I know
You would let go
We had it fine
Giving and taking

How could I know
(How) my love would grow
You’d drift away
Hearts would be braking

How could I know
I was on show
Acting for you
Doing the right thing

How could I know
Needing you so
Begging you now
Why can’t we start again

I let you push my life around
And I gave in without a sound
Feelings seem to disappear
Drowning in the tide of the years

How could I know
You would let go
We had it fine
Giving and taking

How could I know
(How) my love would grow
You’d drift away
Hearts would be braking

How could I know
I was on show
Acting for you
Doing the right thing

How could I know
Needing you so
Begging you now
Make your decision

How could I know
Needing you so
Begging you now
Why can’t we start again
