  • Lookin' back, lookin back' at the past
    At what we had, oh
    And I hate the fact we can't turn back
    'Cause what I did
    It hurt you bad, oh

    And I know that I did you wrong
    Know that I led you on
    Know that I did you wrong
    But I was running blind
    And I wish I took the time
    To really ask you how you feel

    So tell me now
    How will I know if you really love me
    I say a prayer with every heartbeat
    I fall in love whenever we meet
    How will I know?
    How will I know?

    Oh-oh-oh-oh
    How will I know?
    Oh-oh-oh-oh
    How will I know?
    Oh-oh-oh-oh
    How will I know?
    Oh-oh-oh-oh
    How will I know?

    Every night, I'm running wild to heal the scars
    And clear my mind, oh yeah
    But it's hard to find the space I need to contemplate
    That you're not mine anymore

    And I know that I did you wrong
    Know that I led you on
    Know that I did you wrong
    (Did you wrong, did you wrong)
    But I was running blind
    And I wish I took the time
    To really ask you how you feel

    So tell me now
    How will I know if you really love me
    I say a prayer with every heartbeat
    I fall in love whenever we meet
    How will I know?
    (How will I know?)
    How will I know?

    Oh-oh-oh-oh
    How will I know?
    Oh-oh-oh-oh
    How will I know?
    Oh-oh-oh-oh
    How will I know?
    Oh-oh-oh-oh
    How will I know?

    Oh, can you tell me?
    I need to know, I need to know
    How will I know if you really love me
    How will I know?
    How will I know?

    How will I know if you really love me
    I say a prayer with every heartbeat
    I fall in love whenever we meet
    How will I know?
    (How will I know?)
    How will I know?

    How will I know if you really love me
    I say a prayer with every heartbeat
    I fall in love whenever we meet
    How will I know?
    (How will I know?)
    How will I know?
