"What I Didn't Know" as written by and Mark Kano....
I complain, though nothing's even wrongThat's when I said I'll need, more than
you can offer me
I miss your face, as you can tell
Hope my absence makes you well
and you're ashamed, 'cause you're not quite that strong

Cause what I didn't know, is I was killing you
I said a lot of things, that I didn't mean to
but I am older now, and I am sorry too
so I can wait awhile, if I brings me back to you

I am shy, I never speak a word
And you are numb, from all the things you never heard
That's when I said I'll need more than you can offer me
And now I own an empty space
And I can't fill it with your face

Cause what I didn't know, is I was killing you
I said a lot of things, that I didn't mean to
but I am older now, and I am sorry too
so I can wait awhile, if I brings me back to you

Cause what I didn't know, is I was killing you
I said a lot of things, that I didn't mean to
but I am older now, and I am sorry too
so I can wait awhile, if I brings me back to you

That's when I said I'll need, more than you can offer me
I miss your face, as you can tell
Hope my absence makes you well

Cause what I didn't know, is I was killing you
I said a lot of things, that I didn't mean to
but I am older now, and I am sorry too
so I can wait awhile, if I brings me back to you

    General CommentThis is such a wonderful song... I think the lyrics kinda say it for the song, but I always felt like it was a way of saying sorry for everything he screwed up in the past, because he didn't know he was hurting the person ( from the lyrics I gather an old girlfriend or love, somethin like that) and he didn't realize how much he loved her until she was gone. it's a beautiful song, incredibly sad, but absolutely beautiful.

    Side note - THIS BAND IS STILL AROUND. PLEASE support them all you can!!! If you like their music, go out and buy their CDs, they need all the help they can get. They really are a great bunch of guys, so if you can help them out please do!

    General CommentCUPhoenix83, thank you. A lot of lyrics do not have people actually posting what the song means. So, I try my hardest to post wht I think a song means, but now I find someone who has already done a good job of it, thanks for keeping the true intent of this site alive. I totally agree with your interpretation of the song.
