(Mark Erelli)
Wish I could say that I didn't know
If we held on too tight or just let it all go
Thinking maybe we'd profit from time spent alone
We must have been crazy back then
I remember the words you said as you left
What you've done I could never forgive or forget
But inside I was hoping, despite all your regret
That maybe we'd finish as friends
CHORUS
I guess it's all true, you know what they say
You don't know what you've got 'till you've thrown it away
When nothing is ventured, nothing is gained
But some things cannot be so easily explained
Looking back now it's so easy to see
If I'd just stood by you and you'd just stood by me
That together we'd weather all life's stormy seas
With each other for a captain and crew
And for all of that time we've invested in love
You might have thought we could rise above all of this stuff
But what we got in return wasn't nearly enough
To keep us from singing the blues
I guess it's all true, you know what they say
You don't know what it's worth 'till you've thrown it away
(CHORUS)
They say all wounds are healed by the graces of time
And that lonely is only a state of mind
Still I wish you were walking right here by my side
To have and to hold 'till the day that I die
I guess it's all true, you know what they say
You don't know what you've got 'till you've thrown it away
