If I Knew In My Heart

If I knew in my heart,
I was right.
I would not fight...
I'd walk away.
Not from a feeling of weakness.

If I knew in my heart,
I was right.
I would not fight.
I would be bleeding inside...
From wounds I self inflict.

Knowing whatever I chose to do,
You would pick until I shared with you...
Ignorance.
And so much of that,
Has gotten us off track.

If I knew in my heart,
I was right.
I would not fight...
I'd walk away.
Hoping one day...
Your mouth would shut!
And your ears would open.

If I knew in my heart,
I was right.

Comments about If I Knew In My Heart by Lawrence S. Pertillar

    Why desire to sing 'duets'?
    When one continues to hint,
    doing 'all' performances in 'solo'.
    So...how low should one go,
    to be convinced of this?
