"Nobody Knows" as written by Edward Joel Kowalczyk, Chad David Taylor, Patrick Dahlheimer and Chad Alan Gracey....
I was on a street,
With a common name
I prayed for love
Yeah i even begged
I had a vision of you
That carried me through

Now it's just magic worlds
In a shaman's dream
I fear no man
I fear no pain
I had a vision of you
That carried me through

And nobody really knows what i would do for you
Nobody really knows how much I love you
Nobody really knows,
Nobody knows, nobody knows, nobody knows.

I cleared my mind
And i turned around
Grateful to the one who had laid me down
I was silent in love
Pouring down from above

Like so much rain it fell
And pierced my brains
The trees all-alive with their colors
Like the dreams of man
I had a vision of you
That carried me through

And nobody really knows what i would do for you now,
Nobody really knows how much I love you baby
Nobody really knows,
Nobody knows, nobody knows, nobody knows
Nobody knows yeah!

I was on a street yeah!
With a common name
I prayed for love oh!
Baby i even begged
I had a vision of you
That carried me through (Carried me through)

And nobody really knows what i would do for you,
Nobody really knows how much I love you babe
Nobody really knows,
Nobody knows, nobody knows, nobody knows

    General CommentWhy has no one commented on this song?
    Understand, this sone is completely devoted to the immortal concept of Love and God.
    And Might I Add...Ed is well suited to discuss both. : )

    And has anyone noticed that his voice can bring down the heavens?

    Signed,
    A devoted Fan of ED

    General CommentI totally agree. Great song and sounds as if it could fit right into the middle of the Distance to Here rather than on V, but a great song - lyrically and melodically. Ed is incredible!

    General CommentWow, I'm kinda disappointed so few people have commented on this song.... it's really good! I don't think you even need to appreciate the religious connotations behind the lyrics (I don't :P)... it's just a great love song!!... yeh, definately one of the best vocalists of all time
