Song Description

The singer is in a dysfunctional relationship with a non-communicative man. It is only as she is leaving that he expresses his feelings. She leaves him and breaks free of the hold he had on her. "I'm finally gonna sleep like a baby, tonight."

Story Behind the Song

The inspiration for this song actually came from a discussion I had with a few of my sisters regarding parental love.

Lyrics

How Was I Supposed To Know © 2013 David W. Folsom

I've been sitting in the dark for quite some time
Got my curtains open wide but you're not shedding any light
You know what's yours is yours, but is your heart still really mine?
I'm so tired, but I'm not getting any sleep tonight

How was I supposed to know
If you never told me so
You couldn't even let your feelings show
So tell me, how was I... supposed to know

You never said a word when you walked in
There's so much I want to say I just don't know where to begin
The future looked so bright, but I can see it's getting dim
And you're standing there with nothing but a foolish grin

How was I supposed to know
If you never told me so
You wouldn't even let your feelings show
So tell me, how was I... supposed to know

Bridge:
Now I'm walking out the door
And you're crawling on the floor
And telling me you just can't bear to let me go

How was I supposed to know
If you never told me so
You wouldn't even let your feelings show
So tell me, how was I... supposed to know

I'd been sitting in the dark for quite some time
Now I've opened up my eyes and I can finally see the light
It feels so good to free myself and feel the warm sunshine
And I'm finally gonna sleep like a baby tonight
