you had to be lyrics – chad brock

i can do my best to tell you what it feels like in my skin
you can’t really know unless you’ve gone where he’s been
i can give you all the details but you’d never understand
what it means to let that go, slip right through your hands

i guess, you had to be there when she smiled
or had to feel the p*ssion running wild
really know the woman and the child
i guess, you had to be there

’til she stripped the layers off, seen into your soul
watched her make a diamond of a worthless piece of coal
’til you’ve held an angel then let her fly away
you won’t ever understand, no matter what i say

i guess, you had to be there when she smiled
or had to feel the p*ssion running wild
really know the woman and the child
i guess, you had to be there

i guess, you had to be there when she smiled
or had to feel the p*ssion running wild
really know the woman and the child
i guess, you had to be there

i guess, you had to be there when she smiled
or had to feel the p*ssion running wild
’til you walked in my shoes for a while
i guess, you had to be there

i guess, you had to be there
i guess, you had to be there
