i knew love lyrics – nanci griffith

i knew love when it still meant forever
when a feeling shared didn’t always have to hurt
and a promise that was made would go unbroken
i knew love when it was more than just a word

i knew a time when hope was all you needed
and if you cared you found a way to make things work
when life was what two people shared together
oh, i knew love when it was more than just a word

i knew love when i could still believe
it was the greatest power in the world
i knew love when it was more than just a word

i knew hearts when they made it all so easy
and sad goodbyes were seldom ever heard
when i wouldn’t have to read this note that says you’re leaving
i knew love when it was more than just a word

i knew love when i could still believe
it was the greatest power in the world
i knew love when it was more than just a word
i knew love when it was more than just a word
