How Was I Supposed To Know

I run down to a crossroad
Where my destiny dooms large
When my past shatters in front of my eyes
It’s only your presence which gives the charge

How was I supposed to know?
About all my dreams of late
I desired to have you as my better half
But you’re somebody else’s fate
How was I supposed to know?
About the beats of my heart
That even after liking you so much
Before we meet, we’ll go apart

My past was a bitter one
When my heart takes over the mind
I face right there a breach of trust
But then it was you, whom I find

How was I supposed to know?
That my find will go in vain
You still reside in my heart
But your presence is not the same
How was I supposed to know?
That one day I’ll have to retract
I confess that I’m in love with you
And this is the only bitter fact
