I Knew I Loved You

by

Savage Garden



Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

This love song is about finding the person you were meant to be with and have been waiting for all your life. The hook line, "I knew I loved you before I met you" is a somewhat awkward lyric, but many listeners found it deeply moving and the song became very popular at weddings.
The Country singer Daryle Singletary recorded a popular version for his 2000 album Now and Again. (thanks, Catherine - Glasgow, England, for above 2)
This song almost didn't make it onto the Affirmation album. When Darren Hayes and Daniel Jones of Savage Garden presented their songs for the album to their record producers, they were told that the album wouldn't be as big a hit as their debut album if they didn't have a "Truly Madly Deeply" on it. So Darren and Daniel went and wrote this song. (thanks, Ceres - Concord, NH)
Kirsten Dunst starred in the video. Dunst's career took off a few years later with big roles in the Spider-Man movies and in Marie Antoinette.
