(Hal Ketchum and Shelby Lynne)

If I never knew you,
If I never felt this love,
I would have no inkling of,
How precious life can be.

And if I never held you,
I would never have a clue,
How at last I'd find in you,
The missing part of me.

In this world so full of fear,
Full of rage and lies.
I can see the truth so clear,
In your eyes, so dry your eyes.

And I'm so grateful to you.
I'd have lived my whole life through.
Lost forever,
If I never knew you

If I never knew you,
I'd be safe but half as real.
Never knowing I could feel,
A love so strong and true.

And I'm so grateful to you.
I'd have lived my whole life through.
Lost forever,
If I never knew you

I thought our love would be so beautiful;
Somehow we made the whole world bright.
I never knew that fear and hate could be so strong.
All they'd leave us where these whispers in the night,
But still my heart is singing, we were right.

If I never knew you;
(There's no moment I regret.)
If I never knew this love.
(Since the moment that we met.)
I would have no inkling of,
(If our time has gone too fast.)
How precious life can be.
(I've lived at last...)

I thought our love would be so beautiful;
Somehow we made the whole world bright.
I thought our love would be so beautiful,
We'd turn the darkness into light.
And still my heart is singing, we were right.

And If I never knew you,
I'd have lived my whole life through.
Empty as the sky, never knowing why.
Lost forever.

If I never knew you.
