1. Don't You Know

From the recording Don't You Know

The phrase and tune that opens this song were rattling around in my brain for several months. Then we received word that my older brother had attempted to kill himself and no one could find him. This song was written as we walked the streets of NYC and drove through northwestern New Jersey searching for him.


Don’t You Know I Love You?

How can someone be so smart and act so really dumb?
How can someone know the truth and lie to kingdom come?
How can you pack up and leave as if I wasn’t here?
How can you walk out the door, leave everything that’s dear?
Don’t you know I love you? Don’t you know I care?
Don’t you know I’d do anything; I’d go anywhere
Why do you shut me out? Where do I begin?
Why do you build these walls? Please let me in
Why do you run away? You can never hide
My love for you will never end; I’m always by your side

How can I prove I love you? How can I show I care?
I want you to know I’d do anything, I’d go anywhere

I am waiting for your call; Praying every day
That you will open up your eyes, see that there’s a way
A way to end this hurt and pain, a way to live again
Feeling all my love and hope, I’ll always be your friend

I will always love you. I will always care
I will do anything, go anywhere
