I Told You I Loved You (Before You Could Say It Back) – New Lyrics

I Told You I Loved You (Before You Could Say it Back)
(C)2014
Written by Josh Damigo

This may get quite heavy
These things that I’m gonna say
I’ve been holding them all back
For Forever and a day

You took me for granted
So tell me what I’m supposed to do
You ripped my heart wide open
You laid it perfectly in two

Now you say that you miss me
But it feels like a trap
Cause I knew that I loved you
Before You could say it back

We haven’t spoken in months
So I got to living in my head
Playing it over and over
And wishing I was dead

Now you tell me something’s been missing
And you want another chance
But I told you I loved you
Before you could say it back

And now that I’ve moved on
And everything has changed
I’ve done all that I could
To forget the taste of your name

Yeah you burned me once
Oh you had your chance
I told you I loved you
Before you could say it back

About Joshua Lodge

Josh will cheerfully admit that he averaged less than a dozen people a show when he first began playing San Diego coffee houses and clubs. But he garnered diehard fans in the process, sold a few thousand copies of his EP, Pocket Change, and picked up few awards along the way. After a traumatic family incident Josh retreated inward, and he ended up writing what would ultimately become his breakout debut, Raw. The album was true to its name and people noticed - Josh picked up two San Diego Music Awards for "Best Acoustic" and "Best Local Recording," opened for the likes of Zac Brown, Jason Mraz, and Matt Nathanson, and had enough money and momentum to tour the country a few times over. A few years after Raw, there was his third EP, Hope. Whereas Raw was a mostly acoustic, vulnerable affair, Hope was a celebration. Pleading and poignant, heartfelt and heavy hearted, it segued effortlessly from orchestral to alt-country, eventually landing him in the top 25 on the country charts. One of the hardest working indie singer/songwriters in Southern California, Josh spent much of the year with producer Mike Butler, gathering up some of the finest musicians in town, shaping his songs and sound further still for his album I Will Be There out now on Randm Records. From the joyous encouragement of “Just Give Me a Call”, to the simple sincerity of the ballad “Tennessee”, Josh’s songwriting skills are clear, his voice rings true and his goals remain the same as when he started - to keep making the best music he can, and to share it with all.
