I Know

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 side
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 cuffs upon my ears so I can shut it out
I see you listen to my body and say
I know, I know

I hear your voice and I know what it costs
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, oh
Our hearts that now beat for each other although far
I hear your voice and I know what it costs
I know, I know

Hold on, hold on
I want you
Hold on, hold on
All I ever wanted was you
