Keith, Toby - Wish I Didn't Know Now Lyrics

I never ask you where your goin',
I never ask you where you've been
I've never called and checked your story,
When you stayed out with all your freinds
I've never tried to catch you lyin',
I didn't want to know the truth
I'd rather go on lovin' blind girl,
Than go on lovin' without you

I wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then
I wish I could start this whole thing over again
I'm not sayin' it's you,
You could never be true
I just don't wanna know how it ends
You'd still have my heart in the palm of your hands
I'd still look like a fool in front of your freinds
Yeah, I wish somehow I didnt know now what I didn't know then

I've always said what I don't know
Couldn't hurt as bad as leavin' you
Turns out I knew what I was thinkin',
It ain't an easy thing to do,
Well I guess I should be goin'
I sure found out too much to stay,
Please don't say your sorry
I might wait another day

I wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then
I wish I could start this whole thing over again
I'm not sayin' it's you,
You could never be true
I just don't wanna know how it ends
You'd still have my heart in the palm of your hands
I'd still look like a fool in front of your freinds
Yeah, I wish somehow I didnt know now what I didn't know then

You'd still have my heart in the palm of your hand
I'd still look like a fool in front of your freinds
Yeah, I wish somehow I didn't know now what I didn't know then
Yeah, I wish somehow I didn't know now what I didn't know then

    Remember walking into bars and hearing music like this? Now you walk in and hear this "snap" country that's not sure if it's pop, rap, or country. Then you got the 20 something kids with a cowboy hat, a polo shirt, jeans pulled down to their knees, and a pair of $300 special addition air Jordans, slapping high fives and yelling every time they do a shot like they just killed a grizzly bear with a twig lol... the older I get, the bar scene just isn't for me anymore I guess lol

  8. Amy Spaid

    Love music like this...

  9. Elizabeth Newberry

  21. Chris Simmons

  22. Heather Pratt

    So; This is a two way street. Cuz I'm sure every one of your girls could probably say that about you. I only say this cuz if you're going to write a whole song about dissing on women

  23. Shaydee Jeff

    My god do I wish I was still ignorant to how it really was. I wish I was still running around like a jackass not knowing.

  24. Roger Crowder

    My  favorite  Toby  Keith  song  and  I  loved  them  all.  Thanks  for  the  post.  LORD  bless  everyone,  in  JESUS  name

  25. Matthew Witulski

    What happened to country. Just replicated music of replicated music. Sad honestly. 90s country will always be in heart. And the prime rise of country

  26. Cody M

    Written and performed by American country music artist Toby Keith. It was released on February 28, 1994, as the fourth and final single from his self-titled 1993 debut album.

  27. Justa Dragn

    Who's the blonde? She looks really familiar.

  28. Luis and Betty Rodriguez

    I'm in the same situation.

  29. CHI-TownYankee

  75. Josef Švarcbek

    very good song

  76. Patsy Ramirez

    This was me like twenty years ago,hate to say

  77. RobAlpacaflip

    This song is just a whole bunch of pain for anyone who feels it, and such a good song for anyone who hasn't felt the pain.

    It's really a masterpiece.

    Shawn Bishop

    Tell me about it, my stomach just turns into knots by listening this song.

  78. Aaron Hunt

    That line..."I'm not saying that you could ever be true." That might be the greatest middle finger of all time in any genre period

    Adam Martin

    In Alanis Morisette's You Oughta Know, she drops the line "when I scratch my nails down someone else's back, I hope you feel it." Both lines are in good company.

  79. Sierrah Justus

    That man is sexy!

  85. Edison Jones

    I love the song but kind of sober but I love it please make more and be sure to let me know❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

  86. ELLEON1959

    Pour Toby got fucked out of a half billion dollars by his first protectors, then went out on his own (thankfully for him, HE'S MAKING THE MONEY NOW AND NOT THEM!) I think Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings types figured these crooked blood suckers out long ago, It's like politics. If you don't play, they will slay. If you don't stay, You're a cast-a-way. Allan Jack-off Jackson sings about Music Row.

    Music Row threw one good cast-a-way to the rest of us. And thank God for Toby Keith. I would bet right now, that Luke Combs is going through the same bull shit that Toby has, and he's made very little money. They only like you when you're hot. His first five songs have hit #1, and they are about done with him unfortunately.... It'll all cool down, they'll send him on tour for 10 years and he'll never be heard from again. If you're reading this LUKE, NEVER STOP!!!

  87. ELLEON1959

    I thought it was just me. I think it's called "listening" which I never did before I was 17 or 18 or was it 25 or 26? Shit I don't remember..... But I do....

  88. R Two

    The hair, damn that is swag.

  89. Bluestar

    I want to slap that

  90. Tim Edelman

    If that ain't the truth 2019

  91. Shell Dudley

    Love Toby hes one of my faves.. Esp this song.. Big country fan here in england. Helps that hes gorgeous haha

  92. chris drake

    I sang this to a dear friend if mine and all she said was ok

    Delta Stargazer

    I tell you, SOME PEOPLE HAVE NO COUTH! & They wonder why they got left behind or standing alone!
    Oh boy I used to have days were I wanted my companion to sing me a song spur of the moment! 😄 I would always sing to him, just to see him smile. He used to tell me I was cute and beautiful when I sang. that just makes me feel very special. so in return I would ask him and every time he would tell me like what or I don't know. I would tell him come on babe just anything I don't care what it's is even ABC's. But nope! he never put any effort into it.

  93. Diego Gonzalez

    Fucken miss kitty turned out to be a slut...dam you miss kitty

  94. Diego Gonzalez

    This song can't even be classified as a country song. A country singer sings it but its an example of how versatile this artist is. An amazing song.

  95. Lana Culberson

    He's just one you can't forget

  96. Ben Ghist

    I just heard someone blasting this driving by.. I had to listen

    Diego Gonzalez

    Its an amazing song man.

  97. Terri Johnson

    When you're faithful they think you're cheating. It's their ex's we have to live with. Night/day dream!
