What If I Never Know You

Story Behind The Song

I was a road musician for years, and lived it

Song Description

People who travel for a living, such as musicians, sometimes meet a wonderful person but can't stay because of their job. So is that it? Does life go on even if that was "the one?" This tender ballad takes a close look at that universal dilemma of love-at-first-sight that almost certainly will not end with a positive outcome, due to circumstances beyond anyone's control

Lyrics

Golden hair and silver eyes
Sad goodbyes: I don't want to say them
Seems as though there ought to be something I can do
To keep from losing you to the same old situation

Cause what if I never know you
What if I never know you
What if I never really know you at all

I can't think of anything I'd rather do than make love with you
But I'd be a fool to try
My two-way street's been cut in half
Well you know I'd laugh if I didn't feel the need to cry

Cause what if I never know you
What if I never know you
What if I never really know you at all

I could ignore you, but I'm not that kind
I just want to hold you
Settin' myself up to be knocked down again
But I'd be a liar if I didn't say I want to be close to you now

Cause what if I never know you
What if I never, ever know you
What if I never really know you at all
