(Vince Gill - Rosanne Cash)
Wince Gill & Rosanne Cash

If she'd only knew what was in my head
Why can't she see my heart is breaking
If she'd only knew what I was thinking

She'd be mine if it weren't for him.
Still I can't learn to live without
So many times I dreamed I had her
See your face would be my destiny
I call her name when I lay down
Her jealous heart is all I found.

Now I won't take what you can give to me
If it weren't for him then you'd be mine.
--- Instrumental ---

This lonely place is all I hope to find

If he'd only knew what I was thinking
If he'd only knew what was in my head
Why can't he see my heart is breaking

He'd be mine if it weren't for him.
You'd be mine if it weren't for him...
