John Michael Montgomery - How Was I To Know Lyrics




Well I hoped and I prayed, I loved you from afar
I cried, and I dreamed, wished on every star
But nothin' I'd do got me closer to you
So I locked all my feelings inside

Then one night across a crowded room
You looked my way, your eyes held something new
You walked right up to me and smiled tenderly
And your words came as such a surprise

Well how was I to know
You never let it show
What a beauty like you might see
In a poor boy like me
How could I have seen
You walk out of my dreams
Shine your light on my sleepin' heart
And into my soul
How was I to know

You took my hand and led me out the door
We talked and we laughed
'Bout all the times before
When two lonely people so much in love
Passed like ships in the night

Well how was I to know
You never let it show
What a beauty like you might see
In a poor boy like me
How could I have seen
You walk out of my dreams
Shine your light on my sleepin' heart
And into my soul
How was I to know

How could I have seen
You walk out of my dreams
Shine your light on my sleepin' heart
And into my soul
How was I
How was I to know

Oooh
Oooh
Ooooooooh Oh Oh
