Thought I Knew You

I thought I knew you
But I was in for a suprise
I let my love flow
From my heart into your eyes
And then I found out
That there was nothing I could know
Or guess about you
You'd go as far as you could go

And it took me years to figure out
That there was nothing
I could give to you
Years to figure out
That there was nothing
You would take from me
And how can I describe
The way you slowly put
My hope away
And all of the time
I thought I knew you

I thought I knew you
But I wasn't even close
I had my heart set
On little more than a ghost
And I thought I'd show you
There was no way we could lose
I thought I'd force you
To realize and choose

And it took me years to figure out
That there was nothing
I could show to you
Years to figure out
That you were never really
Going to choose
And how can I describe
The way I slowly lost
My love for you
And all of the time
I thought I knew you

And it took me years to figure out
That there was nothing
I could show to you
Years to figure out
That you were never
Really going to choose
And how can I describe
The way I slowly lost
My love for you
And all of the time
I thought I knew you
