The Only One That Knows

My heart is just a hole
all has gone away
my mind is broken thoughts
except for that day
that’s the way it goes
when you’re the one that knows

The path I’m walking down
I must go alone
my little school yard mate
you’ve never fully grown
that’s the way it goes
when you’re the one that knows

Three of them held me
two of them held you
no more twinkling smile
in your eyes of blue
that’s the way it goes
when you’re the one that knows

Unable to help you there
lying in the dirt
I still see your tears
to this day I hurt
that’s the way it goes
when you’re the one that knows

The years have passed by
I grew to be a man
the law didn’t punish them
I did what I can
that’s the way it goes
when you’re the one that knows

one by one they fell
all died in their sleep
they didn’t scream a sound
they had no chance to weep
that’s the way it goes
when you’re the one that knows

The sun falls softly still
I’ve nothing left at all
I lie beside your stone
It’s my time to fall
that’s the way it goes
when you’re the one that knows

My heart is just a hole
since you went away
my mind is peaceful now
beside you I will stay
that’s the way it goes
when you’re the one that knows

That’s the way it goes
when you’re the only one …

…that knows
