Lyrics for She Couldn't by Linkin Park:

Intro: Mos Def
Won't be long 'til everybody knows

Verse 1: Chester Bennington
I've seen her smiling
The sunlight shining for her now
She couldn't stay here
She knows you won't let her down

Pre-Chorus: Chester Bennington
You know she couldn't stay here with you
You know she had to go
Even though she couldn't stay here with you
You know you're not alone

Chorus: Mike Shinoda & Mos Def
No matter what you think you did wrong
Won't be long 'til everybody knows
She knew she had to go all along
Won't be long 'til everybody knows
No matter what you think you did wrong
Won't be long 'til everybody knows
She knew she had to go all along
Won't be long 'til everybody knows

Verse 2: Chester Bennington
I've seen her shining
The sunlight's crying for her now
She wouldn't stay here
She knows you won't let her down

Pre-Chorus: Chester Bennington
You know she couldn't stay here with you
You know she had to go
Even though she couldn't stay here with you
You know you're not alone

Chorus: Mike Shinoda & Mos Def
No matter what you think you did wrong
Won't be long 'til everybody knows
She knew she had to go all along
Won't be long 'til everybody knows
No matter what you think you did wrong
Won't be long 'til everybody knows
She knew she had to go all along
Won't be long 'til everybody knows

Bridge: Mos Def
Won't be long 'til everybody knows
Won't be long 'til everybody knows
Won't be long 'til everybody knows
Won't be long 'til everybody knows

Chorus: Mike Shinoda & Mos Def
No matter what you think you did wrong
Won't be long 'til everybody knows
She knew she had to go all along
Won't be long 'til everybody knows
No matter what you think you did wrong
Won't be long 'til everybody knows
She knew she had to go all along
Won't be long 'til everybody knows

Outro: Mike Shinoda & Chester Bennington
No matter what you think you did wrong
You know she couldn't stay here with you
She knew she had to go all along
You know she had to go
No matter what you think you did wrong
You know she couldn't stay here with you
She knew she had to go all along
You know she had to go
No matter what you think you did wrong
You know she couldn't stay here with you
She knew she had to go all along
You know she had to go
No matter what you think you did wrong
You know she couldn't stay here with you
She knew she had to go all along
You know she had to go
No matter what you think you did wrong
You know she couldn't stay here with you
She knew she had to go all along
You know she had to go
No matter what you think you did wrong
You know she couldn't stay here with you

Song Facts

“She Couldn’t” is a demo song recorded in 1999 by Linkin Park (back then known as Hybrid Theory) which featured a sample of “B-Boy Document 99” by Mos Def, Mad Skillz and High and Mighty. The song was previously leaked through the Linkin Park fan-website Linkin Park Live after a promo CD that featured the song was found on eBay; in 2009, Mike Shinoda talked about its discovery on his blog:

Many of you have asked about an old demo that is floating around. The song is called “She Couldn’t”. We did it in 1999 while working on Hybrid Theory [the band’s 2000 debut album, ndr], but it never made ​​it on an album and has never been published by us. For legal reasons, that’s all I can say about the song, but I hope this clears up the matter!

Linkin Park officially released the song on August 13th, 2020, as a promotional song for the 20th Anniversary Edition of Hybrid Theory.
