even if i could lyrics – mamas & the papas

now i know just how you feel, it was real
when i broke your heart.
now i know just why you cried when i lied
and i broke your heart.
now i know just how you feel,
(now i know just how you feel…)
and i know that it was real
(and i know that it was real…)
now i know just why you cried
when i lied (i lied), i lied, i lied.

but i want it understood
when it was, it was very good.
and i would not trade away,
not a day, even if i could.
now i know just how you feel,
(now i know just how you feel…)
and i know that it was real,
(now i know that it was real…)
and now you know just why i cried
when she lied (she lied), she lied, she lied.
but i want it understood
when it was, it was good.
and i would not trade a day, not a day
no not an hour of the day
though she’s left and gone away
even if i could… even if i could.
