lyrics

I Knew

This crazy world we live in keeps on changing
Put something in its place next thing you know it's rearranging
It sure seems like nothing stays the same
Nothing on this earth I trust
Cause nothing remains

But I knew long before we ever made a home
Before our lives were set in stone
I knew, baby, I knew
And I knew long before I ever touched your face
Before you moved into my place
I knew, baby, I knew that I was meant for you

Looking in the future there's so little to be sure of
I see wars and violence, atrocities and diseases there ain't no cure of
It sure seems like something's gotta give
I know I'm no expert, after all it's my first life to live

But I knew long before I told you how I feel
Before you cooked us our first meal
I knew, baby, I knew
And I knew, long before I kissed you on the mouth
Before you ever had to chew me out
I knew, baby, I knew I was meant for you

It sure seems like you are all I got
But when I'm with you, babe, this world it ain't as awful as I thought

But I knew long before you ever made me cry
Before you baked me a rhubarb pie
I knew, baby, I knew
I knew before I got down on one knee
Before your mother made fun of me
I knew, baby, I knew that I was meant for you
