If I Knew Then Lyrics

by Lady Antebellum

The first time that I saw you
Looking like you did
We were young, we were restless
Just two clueless kids

But if I knew then what I know now
I'd fall in love

You're on a bus in Chicago
Three rows to the left
You know my heart is reaching for you
But we never even met

If I knew then what I know now
I'd fall in love

'Cause love only comes
Once in a while
And knocks on your door
And throws you a smile

And takes every breath
Leaves every scar
Speaks through your soul
And sings to your heart

But if I knew then what I know now
I'd fall in love

On a summer night in august
Backseat of my car
Said I'm trying to get to know you
I took it way too far

But if I knew then what I know now
I'd fall in love

Whoa, 'cause love only comes
Once in a while
And knocks on your door
And throws you a smile

And takes every breath
Leaves every scar
Speaks through your soul
And sings to your heart

But if I knew then what I know now
I'd fall in love

Whoa, I used up a lot of chances
But you give them back
But if again it comes crawling
I'm gonna make it last

'Cause love only comes
Once in a while
And knocks on your door
And throws you a smile

It takes every breath
Leaves every scar
Speaks through your soul
And sings to your heart

And if I knew then what I know now
Whoa, if I knew then what I know now

I'd fall in love
