I would have loved you anyway – Trisha Yearwood

by Dutchcloggie

If I’d’ve known the way that this would end

If I’d’ve read the last page first

If I’d’ve had the strength to walk away

If I’d’ve known how this would hurt

I would’ve loved you anyway

I’d do it all the same

Not a second I would change

Not a touch that I would trade

Had I known my heart would break

I’d’ve loved you anyway

It’s bittersweet to look back now

At memories withered on a vine

Just to hold you close to me

For a moment in time

I would’ve loved you anyway

I’d do it all the same

Not a second I would change

Not a touch that I would trade

Had I known my heart would break

I’d’ve loved you anyway

Even if I’d seen it comin’

You’d still have seen me runnin’

Straight into your arms

I would’ve loved you anyway

I’d do it all the same

Not a second I would change

Not a touch that I would trade

Had I known my heart would break

I would’ve loved you anyway

I would’ve loved you anyway

People look down on country music because it is simple, down to earth. But although the performance is often too overly sentimental for my liking, I often find the straight forwardness of the lyrics refreshing yet comforting. It is how those of us who don’t think in metaphores might describe their feelings. If I had ANY songwriting talent, I would have written this.
