lyrics

DIDN'T YOU KNOW

A7
Didn't you know my heart was beating
D?
didn't you know that I'd be there
A7
I can feel the shadows fleeting
D?
did I lose inside somewhere

C
Didn't you hear that I was breathing

'cos I die with every breath

am I a fool to still believe in
A7
resurrect me after death

F
Don't you see I'm not your failure
A7
didn't your faith fail you this time
F
didn't you know that love is gracious
A7
your kind of loving is so blind

Didn't you know my heart was beating
didn't you know that I'd be there
I can feel the shadows fleeting
did I lose inside somewhere


Didn't you hear this voice was calling
in the fullness of my years
you are the fool still to believe in
ring the bells and block your ears

Don't you see I'm not your failure
didn't your faith fail you this time
didn't you know that love is gracious
your kind of loving is so blind

Couldn't you even try to listen
couldn't you try to feel the pain
didn't you ever turn around
and feel the coldness of the rain

Didn't you know that I was keeping
a watch on every wall
couldn't you understand the feeling
every time a sparrow falls

Didn't you know that I was keeping
a watch on every wall
couldn't you understand the feeling
C A7
every time a sparrow falls
C A7
every time a sparrow falls
every time a sparrow falls
every time a sparrow falls
every time a sparrow falls
