Countdown to New Shoes Album Day 5, Track 11

Standard

(Post edited – each day, a new song was previewed. The preview link was the same every day. I have removed those links as they are now dead. As the band releases videos, I’ll adjust links for specific songs. Your best bet right now is to head on over to ShoesWire.com and buy Ignition. You won’t be disappointed. The guys put a great deal of time and thought into this album and the songs are stellar.)

Shoes, that amazing Power Pop band from Zion, Illinois, has been working on a new album for over a year. It’s titled Ignition and will have an “Extreme Fan” release on July 3rd. Every day, starting on June 18, they are revealing a new song, counting down from Track 15.

Track 11 is I Thought You Knew by John Murphy. Catchiest break-up song, ever.

Buy Ignition from ShoesWire.com.

I THOUGHT YOU KNEW
(John Murphy)

Blown to hell but you left no doubt
Knew all too well we couldn’t work it out

But I thought you knew what you were doin’
I never thought it could get ruined like this
I thought you knew what you were doin’

Choices you made showed me what you’re all about
It’s fair to say things are no better now

But I thought you knew what you were doin’
I never thought it could get ruined like this
I thought you knew what you were doin’ was wrong

When it’s gotten where it’s beyond repair
And fallen on deaf ears
So much more’s involved if it’s unresolved
Open to heartache and token tears

You wore me down but I’m not beaten yet
Each day I see how bad we let it get

When you boil it down to what matters now
And you’ve taken all the heat
All that’s left besides the pile of lies
Are rambling emails and bitter tweets

It’s been comin’ down hard now for quite some time
Your heart’s undamaged but it leveled mine

But I think I know where this is goin’
I can’t imagine you not knowin’ where too
I think I know where this is goin’ wrong

But I thought you knew what you were doin’
I never thought it could get ruined like this
I thought you knew what you were doin’ was wrong
