You know

I thought you knew

The last time

You were through,

But you

Can’t seem to

Understand why I love you.

You know

I thought you’d bring

The best

Out in me,

But you’re

Determined to be


I knew

You when

I knew

You then,

And I knew

When you’d tell me

You would, but

You’d never change,

My love for you

In vain,

Each time I trust again,

I say, “I knew.”

You know

I want to see

This love you

Promised me.

I gave my best.


There’s someone who

Can touch the best in me.

Thirteen years…


I gave my best

To you,

But know

My heart is packed

This time.

My trust,


When I say

things your way.

You know

We tried this,

But again

You know

I’ll still love you.

You know

You’ll get one more chance.

Don’t know how

I keep loving this man.

It’s one more time,


You know

I’ve made up my mind.

What you don’t know

Won’t hurt you

But me.

This time, before I leave

I’ll trust you anew.

Darling, I’m leaving you.

I won’t say a word,

But you’ll know

I’ve heard.

Your “I knows”

Are all over for me.

You don’t know

This girl

Like you think

You do,

Cause this time,

I know.
