If I had only know, it was the last walk in the rain
A/E D/E E7 A(add9)
I’d keep you out, for hours in the storm
E/D A(add9) Bm7
I would hold your hand, like a life line to my heart
A/E Fdim F#m B7/D#
Underneath the thunder, we’d be warm
A/E D/E E7 A(add9)
If I had only known, it was our last walk in the rain

Verse 2
If I had only known, I’d never hear your voice again
I’d memorize, each thing you ever said
And all those lonely nights, I can think of them once more
And keep your words, alive inside my head
If I had only known, I’d never hear your voice again

A/C# E/D D
You were the treasure in my head
E/D D
You were the one who always stood beside me
Cdim7 A/C# Cdim7 A/C# Bm7
So unaware how I’d foolishly believed that you would always be there
A(add9) /C# D Bm7/E E E/D
But then there came a day, and I turned my head and you slipped away

E/D D A D/A A

A E/D A(add9) Bm7
If I had only known, it was my last night by your side
A/E Bm7/E E7 A
I’d pray a miracle to stop the dawn
E/D A(add9) Bm7
And when you smiled at me, I would look into your eyes
A/E Fdim F#m7 B9/D#
And make you sure you know my love for you goes on and on
A/E D/E E/D
If I had only known
A/C# D(add9)
If I had only known

E7 N.C.
If I had only known…
