If I Knew Then
(Written by Ray Harris ©2012 SOCAN)

If I knew now what I knew then,
And you knew what I knew -
You'd know now what I knew then,
I thought that I loved you.

I'd cried my tears in mason jars,
And piled them high and wide -
I built four walls to hide behind,
But you saw me inside.

I soon learned things about myself,
I never thought I'd know -
When you looked deep into my eyes,
The window to my soul.

Ay yi yi yi yi - what did we do?
You thought it was me and I thought it was you... riff

If I knew then what I know now,
And you knew what I knew -
You'd know now what I knew then,
I thought that I loved you.

In my mind you were the kind,
I'd dreamed of my whole life -
But other guys had minds like mine,
And great minds think alike.

Things got bad and things got worse,
Insult to injury -
I was never one to be number two,
And you broke my heart in three.

Ay yi yi yi yi - what did we do?
You thought it was me and I thought it was you... riff

SOLO section

If I knew then what I know now,
And you knew what I knew -
You'd know now what I knew then,
I thought that I loved you.

They say some hearts are made of glass,
But mine's a rear view mirror -
When I reflect now some objects,
Are not what they appear.

If I knew then what I know now,
And you knew what I knew -
You'd know now what I knew then,
I thought that I loved you.
I thought that I loved you.
I thought that I loved you.
