Lyrics

Sad To Know

 

Knowing that each other was promised to another

We didn't care, instead we tried (instead we tried) 

Tried to keep our feelings strong based on a love we knew was wrong

But we didn't dare to say goodbye (goodbye)

 

Bridge

Now my life has changed so much from long ago

And I don't know who you are, though you appeared to be my star (star)

And now you'll suffer the decision that you made

Well my role has been played and our story starts to fade

 

Chorus

Sad to know (sad to know) that you never loved me

Sad to know (sad to know) you weren't who I thought you'd be

And the promise made you couldn't keep

 

Verse

Realizing that you could never really be true still I took a chance, with my heart (heart)

My friends say it's better for us not to be together

Why do I rue the day that you died in my heart

 

Bridge 2

Now you've got him lying in the bed I made

But it wasn't a fair trade, with my emotions you played

So now all the selfish things that you do (you do)

Will come rushing back to you (coming right back at you)

What are you gonna do?

 

Chorus

Sad to know (sad to know) that you never loved me

Sad to know (sad to know) you weren't who I thought you'd be

And the promise made you couldn't keep

 

Change

He was always around when I wasn't there (wasn't there)

His presence in my absence never a question (oh oh oh)

It hurts to know you gave your love without a care

Well I don't have to stick around

The dagger you stuck in my heart's still there, it hurts to care

 

Bridge

So now you've got him lying in the bed I made

But it wasn't a fair trade, with my emotions you played

So now all the selfish things that you do, will come rushing back to you

What are you gonna do, what are you gonna do?

 

Chorus - Modulation 1 whole step

Sad to know (sad to know) that you never loved me

Sad to know (sad to know) you weren't who I thought you'd be

And the promise made you couldn't keep

Sad to know (sad to know) that you never loved me

Sad to know (sad to know) weren't who I thought that you would be yeah

(Sad to know) and you never loved me, baby

Weren't who I thought you'd be

Sad to know (sad to know) ain't it sad to know, ain't it sad to know...(whoo) to know…

You should have (sad to know) ah you couldn't have (sad to know)

Oh you should have (ain't it sad to know, ain't it sad to know) oh baby, ah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah.

Sad to know (sad to know) and you never loved me (sad to know) oh, oh, oh, oh...yeah

(Sad to know) oh but you should have
