She released her first solo album in 1977 and released five additional studio albums under the label until 1983. more »

My world revolved around you
Every word was a promise I was hangin' on
Swept up inside a whirlwind
I just couldn't see the end till you were gone

I thought I would fall apart
(With) shattered dreams and a broken heart
Scramblin' in the dark

How was I to know
That I'd be ok
Thought I'd lose it all when you walked away
How was I to know
I would be this strong
I had what it takes all along
How was I to know

What I was so afraid of
Turned out to be my freedom in disguise
Now i know what I'm made of
Guess it just took some time to realize

I was blind, I couldn't tell
I put too much faith in someone else
Gave up on myself

How was I to know
That I'd be ok
Thought I'd lose it all when you walked away
How was I to know
I would be this strong
I had what it takes all along
How was I to know
