LyricsEdit

A knocking sound, it woke me up
But my legs were feeling weak
I stared up at the ceiling and I saw you at the window
But my mouth wouldn't let me speak

I know you
You're the one 
I spent three seasons trying 
To pretend that I never knew

Something pulled me off the bed
And the same thing moved the muscles in my legs
I moved toward you voice, and my body got so light
I could've walked on eggs right then and not broken a one of them

I know you
You're the one 
I spent three seasons trying
To pretend that I never knew

I know you
You're the one 
I spent three seasons trying
To pretend that I never knew

I know you
You're the one 
I spent three seasons trying
To pretend that I never knew

I know you
You're the one
I spent three seasons trying 
To pretend that I never knew
