Didn't Know You

Album: Leo Rising (2015)
  • You said I had it all
    You said it took no brains
    You promised all the stars
    And then you took the reins
    I watched it all come down
    You set my dreams ablaze
    I saw the meteor
    Coming from far away

    Every word you say is made to please
    Oh, I better watch out
    Everyone's got faces no one sees

    Well, I guess I didn't know you at all, hey
    No, no, I guess I didn't know you at all, hey
    Oh, before we fly we have to fall
    I guess I didn't know you at all

    I made it out alive
    A couple bruises fading
    And so I cover up
    And wear a smiley face
    I had to sell my car
    And gather up my things
    I heard you're on to the next
    So they can kiss your rings

    Everyone's got faces no one sees
    Oh, they better watch out
    Every word you say is made to please

    Well, I guess I didn't know you at all, hey
    No, no, I guess I didn't know you at all, hey
    Oh, before we fly we have to fall
    I guess I didn't know you at all

    Like a bird of the prey
    Out of nowhere you came
    Do you always get your way?
    Like a bird of the prey
    Out of nowhere you came
    Do you always, do you always get your way?

    Every word you say is made to please
    I better watch out
    Everyone's got faces no one sees

    I guess I didn't know you at all, hey
    No, no, I guess I didn't know you at all, hey
    Oh, before we fly we have to fall
    I guess I didn't know you at all
    No, no, I guess I didn't know you at all
    (Like a bird of the prey)
    I guess I didn't know you at all
    (Out of nowhere you came)
    Before we fly we have to fall
    I guess I didn't know you at all
    (Do you always get your way?)

    Like a bird of the prey
    Out of nowhere you came
    Do you always get your way?
    Like a bird of the prey
    Out of nowhere you came
    Do you always, do you always get your way?
