I never knew how bad it hurt
Or how much you cried
I never knew the pain that you
Kept locked inside
I always thought that no matter what
You were always cool
But after so long
You sure had me fooled

So why did you give it up?
Did you never search for strength to live it up?
After so long of standing up so brave and strong
You were always my hero, it’s so true
If you had only asked, I’d reached out to you
But the truth is I never knew

I’ll never forget the dreaded call
We received that night
I never knew that you
Would ever end your life
You were my best friend until the end
Or so I thought
But do you even realize
All the pain you brought?

So why did you give it up?
Did you never search for strength to live it up?
After so long of standing up so brave and strong
You were always my hero, it’s so true
If you had only asked, I’d reached out to you
But the truth is I never knew

So fly away past the moon and stars
To the depths of outer space
Fly away from this world of pain
To a better place
There’ll always be a place in my heart
That belongs to you
And I’ll always be strong so the rest can't say
“I never knew”

I’m never gonna give it up
I’ll always find the strength to live it up
I’ve gone for so long
Standing up so brave and strong
When I’ve lost my way or I don’t know what to do
I’ll just remember what happened to you
So they can't say “I never knew”

…You must always be strong
So the rest can't say “I never knew”
