Tellef Raabe – I Thought You Knew Lyrics

I Thought You Knew Lyrics by Tellef Raabe


Oh brother, where are you now?
I’ve been sleeplessly wondering why it all came crashing down
Left speechless, not made a sound
But in secret, I’m dreaming about you ‘most all of the time

I didn’t see it in your eyes
You were lost across a great divide
And what cuts me up inside

I thought you knew
I thought you knew me
I thought you knew me better than I know myself
I thought you knew
I thought you knew me

Oh brother, what did I do
To push you away into something much darker and blue?
Left reeling, when did you know?
Where the last twenty years of our friendship just all for show?

I didn’t see it in your eyes
You were lost across a great divide
And what cuts me up inside

I thought you knew
I thought you knew me
I thought you knew me better than I know myself
I thought you knew
I thought you knew me
(Thought you knew better than I know myself)

I thought you knew
I thought you knew me
I thought you knew me better than I know myself
I thought you knew
I thought you knew me
