My heart was full of doubt ‘cause you didn’t know me.
You said we’d work it out but you didn’t know me.
You were so certain.
Couldn’t see me pulling the curtain.
And now the love is gone ‘cause you didn’t know me.

You said that you’d be mine but you didn’t know me.
I held a warning sign ‘cause you didn’t know me.
Hiding my feelings
Didn’t mean to leave you reeling.
And now you're going home ‘cause you didn’t know me.

You said you'd change me but I knew you couldn't do it.
What I could put you through, i guess I put you through it.
And I’m so sorry.
I tried to warn you but you couldn't hear.
I was sincere.

I held my feelings back so you didn’t know me.
You said we’re right on track but you didn’t know me.
You were contented.
Now it’s done and I can’t defend it.
It’s not what I intended but you didn’t know me.

You should have listened to that little voice inside you.
I couldn’t open up my heart although I tried to.
It wasn't easy.
Love for you was beautiful and free.
That wasn’t me.

And now we’re falling. Falling like there is no bottom.
I hear you calling. Never touch the ground.
And now there’s nothing.
Nothing since you left without a sound.

The story’s over.
Turn the lights off, close the curtain.
I didn’t know her.
Hide away the sun.
Were we pretending?
Shut the book and throw the flowers away.

You thought I was the one.
Throw away the sun.
It was so easy.
Everything you did seemed to please me.
And now this song is done ‘cause you didn’t know me.
