How Could I

Lyrics by Duane Hewitt

How could I
Ever tell you
The words you should know

How could I
Ever let on
The things I don’t show

How could I
Help you to see
What I’ll never tell dear—
How could I leave you?

How could I
Ever let you
Know just how I feel

How could I
Ever belong
When you’re nowhere near

Yes I know
That the hurt would stay
But I’ll never say it—
How could I leave you?

How could I
Ever let show
The hurt that’s so real

How could I
Dare to let on
What I just don’t feel

If it’s true
That our love is gone
Please don’t make me say it—

How could I give up on you?
How could I walk out for good?
Yes it’s true— you’ll know it—
How could I give up our love?
How could I have had enough?
When you say you love me
How could I leave you?—
