Lyrics

Don't Know What You Got

Written By: Hal Maynard

From the time I began to see her
I never knew how to free her
Instead I kept her dangling on a string
In a way I used her and my part time love confused her
Said she always felt like the next best thing

(chorus)
You know what they say when she's walking away
You don't know what you've got until it's gone
You know what they say it's that old worn out cliche
You don't know what you've got until it's gone

She didn't understand why I never took her hand
Or why it always had to stay the same
Little did I know she was making plans to go
Somewhere where love would stake a claim (chorus)

(instrumental)

I thought she’d always wait but her reason came to late
Her happiness is in someone else’s eyes
And the way I feel today, it's a dear price to pay
'Cause all that's left is asking why (chorus)
