Original video
If I had only known
It was our last walk in the rain
I'd keep you out for hours in the storm
I would hold your hand
Like a lifeline to my heart
Underneath the thunder, we'd be warm
If I had only known
It was our last walk in the rain

If I had only known
I'd never hear your voice again
I'd memorize each thing you ever said
And on those lonely nights
I could think of them once more
And keep your words alive inside my head
If I had only known
I'd never hear your voice again

You were the treasure in my hand
You were the one who always stood beside me
So unaware, I foolishly believed
That you would always be there
But then there came a day
And I turned my head, and you slipped away

If I had only known
It was my last night by your side
I'd pray a miracle to stop the dawn
And when you smiled at me
I would look into your eyes
And make sure you know my love for you goes on and on
If I had only known
If I had only known
The love I would have shown
If I had only known
