Knowing She's There

Knowing she's there
makes it possible to live
Knowing she's there
giving all she's got to give
And when the road got long
and the load got heavier
She'd whisper
babe I'm right here with ya
And made it easier to bear
knowing she's there

Knowing she's there
when I reach out in my sleep
Knowing she's there
to hold me when I'm weak
And when the nights got cold
and the days got drearier
She'd whisper
babe I'm right here with ya
And made it easier to bear
knowing she's there

Why did it make me take the ladys love for granted ?
How could I live so deep in a woman and never notice a change ?
Why doesn't any love ever go the way you planned it ?
And why doesn't any woman ever stay the same ?

Now knowing she's there
instead of being here with me
Just knowing she's there
giving him what she gave me
And it ain't that I can't live without it
But every time I think about it

Something inside me screams
Something inside me burns
I feel something inside me tear
Knowing she's there
