I knew you before you knew
Who you wanted to be
Now I see the new you
She's a perfect stranger to me

Loves unkind, for I find
If only saw, the best of you
But my mind, not so blind
Showed my heart the rest of you
Scheming lies and alibis
That butter wouldn't melt disguise
With happy ever after eyes
That made a fool of me

I knew you before you knew
