Toby Keith – Wish I Didn’t Know Now Lyrics

I never ask you where your goin’,
I never ask you where you’ve been
I’ve never called and checked your story,
When you stayed out with all your freinds
I’ve never tried to catch you lyin’,
I didn’t want to know the truth
I’d rather go on lovin’ blind girl,
Than go on lovin’ without you

I wish I didn’t know now what I didn’t know then
I wish I could start this whole thing over again
I’m not sayin’ it’s you,
You could never be true
I just don’t wanna know how it ends
You’d still have my heart in the palm of your hands
I’d still look like a fool in front of your freinds
Yeah, I wish somehow I didnt know now what I didn’t know then

I’ve always said what I don’t know
Couldn’t hurt as bad as leavin’ you
Turns out I knew what I was thinkin’,
It ain’t an easy thing to do,
Well I guess I should be goin’
I sure found out too much to stay,
Please don’t say your sorry
I might wait another day

I wish I didn’t know now what I didn’t know then
I wish I could start this whole thing over again
I’m not sayin’ it’s you,
You could never be true
I just don’t wanna know how it ends
You’d still have my heart in the palm of your hands
I’d still look like a fool in front of your freinds
Yeah, I wish somehow I didnt know now what I didn’t know then

You’d still have my heart in the palm of your hand
I’d still look like a fool in front of your freinds
Yeah, I wish somehow I didn’t know now what I didn’t know then
Yeah, I wish somehow I didn’t know now what I didn’t know then
