Intro:	E7/D    A(add9)/C#    E7/D    A(add9)/C#     Bm7     F#m7          D/E

	E/D  A(add9)/C#7              Bm7 
If I had only   know,         it was the last walk in the rain
      A/E                       D/E      E7      A(add9)
I'd keep you out, for hours      in the storm
             E/D         A(add9)       Bm7
I would hold your hand, like a life line to my heart
A/E                          Fdim       F#m           B7/D#
Underneath the thunder, we'd be warm
A/E                          D/E                            E7      A(add9)
If I had only known,    it was our last walk in the rain

Verse 2
If I had only known, I'd never hear your voice again
I'd memorize, each thing you ever said
And all those lonely nights, I can think of them once more
And keep your words, alive inside my head
If I had only known,    I'd never hear your voice again

A/C#              E/D                  D
You were the treasure in my head
                      E/D                        D                   
You were the one who always stood beside me
Cdim7         A/C#            Cdim7               A/C#                 Bm7
So       unaware how I'd foolishly believed that you would always be there
       A(add9) /C#          D              Bm7/E            E          E/D
But then there came a day, and I turned my head and you         slipped away

E/D     D     A    D/A   A  

A           E/D     A(add9)               Bm7
If I had only     known, it was my last night by your side
      A/E           Bm7/E        E7          A
I'd pray a miracle to         stop the dawn
                          E/D    A(add9)                    Bm7
And when you smiled at me,           I would look into your eyes
             A/E       Fdim                  F#m7          B9/D#
And make you sure you know my love for you goes on     and     on
A/E                           D/E    E/D  
If I had only known
   A/C#                     D(add9)
If I had only known
           A/E                                    E7sus
oh the love I would have shown
    E7              N.C.                    
If I had only known...
