Lyrics:

I Wish I'd Known (Mark W. Courtney)



That crooked smile played across his cheek
As I passed and waved, was it just last week?
Without words, you could read that smile
But I could have stopped, could have talked awhile.
I wish I'd known.
I wish I'd known.

That moment passed too quickly. Then
Before we'd ever pass again,
Like the winter wind blows a flag unfurled,
That easy smile escaped our world.
I wish I'd known.
I wish I'd known.

I wish I'd known that moment played
Our last hello, I would have stayed
And made hello last a thousand years
Before goodbye, before these tears
That fall and fall,
And fall some more,
For that hello,
It closed the door
On any more.

I wish I'd known.
I wish I'd known.
I wish I'd known
