You Never Knew My Mind (by Chris Cornell)

Lyrics

I know you feel
The way I change
But you can’t change
The way I feel
Sometimes I’m a stranger to you
One of a kind

I think some way
You’ll make it
Though, you don’t
Know how to take it
Sometimes you’re a stranger to me
One of a kind

There were times of lots of laughter
And you felt you understood
We were carefree, open, and honest
Loving easy, kind, and true
I suppose you never doubted
That we were altogether fine
You never really knew my mind
You never really knew my mind

My silence holds
The secrets when
I answer but don’t answer
You did not see me well enough
To recognize the signs

You didn’t want to notice
Or know that it was over
I did not see you well enough
To recognize the signs

There were times of lots of laughter
And you felt you understood
We were carefree, open, and honest
Loving, easy, kind, and true
And I suppose you never doubted
That we were altogether fine
Then you saw the changes painfully

And knew
You never really knew my mind
You never really knew my mind

And I suppose you never doubted
That we were altogether fine
Sometimes I’m a stranger to you
Sometimes you’re a stranger to me
Sometimes … maybe all the time
You never really knew my mind
I never really knew your mind
