Wish i had told her how i feel
Maybe she'd be here right now
But instead...


I pretend that I'm glad you went away
These four walls close in more everyday
And I'm dyin inside
And nobody knows it but me

Like a clown I put on a show
Pain is real even if nobody knows
And I'm crying inside
And nobody knows it but me

Why didnt I say
The things I needed to say
How could I let my angel get away?
Now my world is just a tumblin down
I can say it so clearly
But your no where around

Chorus:
The nights are lonely, the days are so sad
And I just keep thinking about the love that we had
And I'm missing you
And nobody knows it but me

I carry a smile when I'm broken in two
And I'm nobody without someone like you
And I'm tremblin inside
And nobody knows it but me

I lie awake, its a quarter past 3
I'd scream it at night if I thought you'd hear me
Yeah my heart is calling you
And nobody knows it but me
Baby

How blue can I get
You could ask my heart
But like a jigsaw puzzle its been torn all apart
A million words couldn't say
Just how I feel
A million years from now you know I'll be loving you still

Chorus:
The nights are lonely, the days are so sad
And I just keep thinking about the love that we had
And I'm missing you
And nobody knows it but me

Nobody, nobody but me

Tomorrow morning I'm hitting the dusty road
Gonna find you where ever, ever you might go
And I'm gonna hold my heart
And hope you come back to me

Yeah say when...

Chorus:
The nights are lonely, the days are so sad
And I just keep thinking about the love that we had
And I'm missing you
And nobody knows it but me

    General CommentThis song has some history with me. It was a song between my first reel boy/girl relationship after I moved away. My favorite lines would be:
    The nights are lonely, the days are so sad
    And I just keep thinking about the love that we had
    And I'm missing you
    And nobody knows it but me
    I carry a smile when I'm broken in two
    And I'm nobody without someone like you
    And I'm tremblin inside
    And nobody knows it but me
    I lie awake, its a quarter past 3
    I'd scream it at night if I thought you'd hear me
    Yeah my heart is calling you
    And nobody knows it but me

    This song is immaculate. The "Tony Rich Project" does a nice version, which is the one I'm familar with. I'm not sure who covered it or what not but I feel power whenever I hear this song.

    General Commentthis song is so sad...my bestfriend dedicated it to me when I moved..I know it is about a relationship, but to me & her it is so much more meaningful then a guy..It is something only bestfriends, SISTERS, could truelly understand..It's so wonderful.

    General CommentI think this song can relate to so many people in so many ways! Its about keeping inside your feelings for someone which has made such a large impact on your life and your still dwelling on losing them... I love the lines:

    Why didnt I say
    The things I needed to say
    How could I let my angel get away?

    He sings this line and the others with so much sorrow and emotion which makes the song what it is... One of the greatest break-up songs of all time...

    General CommentBeing sad about seperating from someone. Nobody knows the pain that you are feeling.
    Personally; I feel the song also speaks to me because I hold the feelings that I have for a certain someone inside. He doesnt know how I feel, "nobody knows it but me". ....
