Ricky Van Shelton – I Thought I'd Heard It All lyrics

I heard you cry yourself to sleep and wake up in the night and walk the floor
And I heard you try to tell me something just as I was running out the door
And I heard you say I love you so many times I can't recall
But until I heard you tellin' me goodbye I thought I'd heard it all
Oh I haven't heard the fortress that I'd built around my ego fall apart
That self destructing unmistaken crying of my own broken heart

And I heard you whisper little things that no one else on earth was meant to hear
And I can't believe it's possible your whispering in someone else's ear
Until tonight I didn't know how far a grown man could crawl
Oh until I heard me begging you I thought I'd heard it all
Oh I haven't heard the fortress...

No I haven't heard that little voice inside me screaming fool what have you done
As my tears start to fall
And I realize the worst is yet to come well I thought I'd heard it all
Oh I realize the worst is yet to come and I thought I'd heard it all
