Song Lyrics - I Know Baby

All I ever do
Is make you cry
I know baby
I know

All I ever see
Is sorrow in your eyes
I know baby
I know

I didn't want to be your scar
I wanted to be your heart
I don't want you to remember me
Like that

All I ever do
Is make you wonder
I know baby
I know

All I ever see
Is us torn asunder
I know baby
I know

I didn't want to be your scar
I wanted to be your heart
I don't want you to remember me
Like that

All she will remember
Is how I brought her pain
With the memory of a cold December
And the stinging rain

All she will remember
Is how I ruined everything
Somehow I lost her smile
There's only me to blame

All I ever do
Is make you hate love
I know baby
I know

All I ever see
Is what you're thinking of
I know baby
I know

I didn't want to be your scar
I wanted to be your heart
I don't want you to remember me
Like that
No not like that
Not like that

But you will baby
Yeah you will
I know baby
I know

Oh I know baby I know...

It is shame that we know and we care, yet we cannot stop this happening. We have love, we have every little bits of happiness, but we yet live sad. I think love needs to be maintained, it is important to reassure continuesly and to live like this day is the last day we have together. That love is a precious gift, and you cannot store it for future purpose, even when we busy even when we not busy, Love is the part of us, seeking little attention each minute.. It is a beautiful feeling, need to treat with respect. Lovely poem, I enjoyed reading this hub. Thanks for sharing ..

Thank you Nayo,

That's a great way to see it: "... you cannot store it..." Precious time is ticking away and it would be so much better to use it for love instead of regret...

Thank you b.

Just another sheepish man who realizes he dropped something that was in his hand... something that loved him but he didn't know until it was too late....

Thank you saleheen,

That's a great way to describe it... it was a gentle admission; a mea culpa and a do with me as you will confession to a woman he lost... those rose petals floating on the water is a great image. Maybe you should take that and write a great poem....
