Lyrics

"Famous Last Words" (If Only...)

Written By: Suzanne Foschino


If only once I could’ve told you that you were right (‘cause you know you were)
Oh if only once I’d have praised you, maybe you’d still be here with me tonight
If only once I could have taken my cold, sharp, stake out of the ground
And if only once I could’ve stopped looking for reasons to fight and put you down

If only I could have learned from my own damn mistakes
If only I could see how I made your tender heart break
If only I could have stopped myself from going too far that day
If only I could have stopped you from gettin’ in your car and drivin’ away

Chorus:

You left this world when you were mad at me.
You’re eyes so blurred with tears that you could hardly see
You left this world ‘cause I chased you out of your home
If only…oh, if only…goddamn, if only.

Oh, you got the final last word and my heart bleeds for you every day
I roam this world without you for all the rest of my days
You may have left this world while you were mad at me
But I’m stuck here knowin’ that the blame will always be on me

Now I spend my time leaving you the flowers that I never gave you when you were mine
I spend my time in this cement garden sittin’ on a bench and constantly cryin’
I spend my time wishing I could take back the things I said
If I had, you might still be alive instead of….oh, just instead….

Chorus:

You left this world when you were mad at me
Now my eyes forever blurred with tears, I will never see
You left this world ‘cause I chased you out of your home
If only I had done something right, you wouldn’t have left me all alone…and all alone...forever…if only…oh, goddamn, if only…

If only…
If only…
Famous last words…
If only…
Never go to bed angry…never say things that you may never be able to take back…
If only…
If only…
Goddamn, if only…

"Does Your Wife Know?" (how much you love me)

Written By: Suzanne Foschino, Sweet Suzi Smith


Can’t stay away from you baby
Never thought I’d be the cheatin’ kind
I toss and turn, can’t sleep at night
Cause I can’t get you off my mind
When I'm away from you baby
It's a cold, heart rippin' hell.
What we got is so damn good
You’re the pearl inside my shell

(Chorus)
Does your wife know
how much you love me?
Does your wife know
how much we share?
Does your wife know
How much you love me?
Darlin’ if she knew,
honey would you care?

Baby, I ain't no angel
And it rips me to the bone
What I'm askin you, you could ask me, too.
‘Cause darlin’, I’m not alone.
When I get home late at night,
I can’t look him in the eye
If he asks me where I been
I’m gonna have to lie

(Chorus)
Does my man know
How much I love you?
Does my man know
How much we share?
Does my man know
How much I love you?
Darlin’, if he knew
Honey would I care?

(Bridge)

And so we go on
Oh, and so we go on
As if nothing is happening
As if nothing is wrong
And it hurts me so bad
‘Cause I know the score
She don’t know about me
And I know you love me more.
Oh, I know you love me more!

Does your wife know?
How much you love me?
Does your wife know?
How much we share?
Does your wife know
How much you love me?
Darlin’ if she knew
Honey would you care?
Does your wife know?
Does my man know?
Does your wife know?
How much, how much, how much
Does your wife know?
Does my man know?
If they knew,
Would we even care?
