I Know Lyrics

by Sharon Van Etten

Now I turn into a lover on the side
I cannot tell the poet eye apart from mine
and now you see me with a tear fall on my right
I know you know.

You see me turn around and try to hide my sigh
I know the ancient melodies will come at night
I sing about my fear and love and what it brings
I know. I know.

And then you push me out.
And then you push me out.
I know. I know.
And then you disappear because you can't fight fear.
I know. I know.

I sit inside a box and try to find my thoughts
with cups upon my ears so I can shut it out.
I see you listen to my body and say,
"I know. I know...
I know it's hard to find out what I'm not.
I know. I know."

And here we are apart, but here together are
our hearts that now beat for each other, although far.
I hear your voice and I know what it calls.
I know. I know...

"Hold on. Hold on. I want you.
Hold on. Hold on. All I ever wanted was you."
