lyrics

NOBODY KNOWS

Yes I’ve been drinking
Yes I have had a few
'Cause that’s the only way
That I could ever say these things to you
Nobody knows how much I love you
Nobody knows how much I care
‘Cause you’re not there

Now you are with another
And in my dreams I am in his shoes
But those shoes don’t fit I must admit
So I wake up with these blues
Nobody knows how much I love you
Nobody knows how much i care
‘Cause you’re not there

That he treats you well I can tell
So I have no excuse
To try to steal your heart or make you part
Get him to turn you loose
So it is I who must be on my way
And never let it show
To my hiding place where I must face the fact
That you may never know

Just how much it hurts to love you
To have to keep it to myself
’Til I can change it or rearrange it
I’ll keep my love up on a shelf
Nobody knows how much I love you
Nobody knows how much I care
‘Cause you’re not there

Yes you are with another
So it is understood
I can’t say how much I love you
But darling if I could
I would shout it from the mountain top
To the valley far below
You’d hear my shout there’d be no doubt
Yes everyone would know

But I can’t say how much I love you
I must keep it to myself
’Til I can change it or rearrange it
I’ll keep my love up on a shelf
Nobody knows how much I love you
Nobody knows how much I care
‘Cause you’re not there - (When I want you)
You’re not there - (When I need you)
You’re never there - (When I want you)
You’re not there - (When I need you)

Nobody knows how much I love you
Nobody knows how much I care
‘Cause you’re not there
