I knew I loved you (before I knew your name)

Lyrics by Colin Bellamy | © Colin Bellamy

Thinking back, I was older, was I 22?
Those nights, felt much colder, but right then I knew
From the moment, that I saw you, there was nothing else to do
This night, all that matters, is the time I spend with you.

[Chorus]
Take a breath, reaching out
Feel the fear, fear the doubt
Is there a chance, that you could feel the same
I knew I loved you [Pause]
Before I knew your name

I’ve travelled far, so far without direction
As I reach my stop, nothing stays the same
I knew I loved you [Pause]
Before I knew your name

I play it out in my mind, there is no second chance
What's your name? – buy a drink, or just ask her to dance?
Stepping back, I can't move, there's too much on the line
You're so pretty, wearing pink, I’m just waiting for a sign

[Chorus]
Take a breath, reaching out
Feel the fear, fear the doubt
Is there a chance, that you could feel the same
I knew I loved you [Pause]
Before I knew your name

I knew I loved you [Pause]
Before I knew your name
