  • I've been up and down, I've been all around
    I was mystified, almost terrified
    But late at night I still hear you call my name

    I've been on my own, I've been all alone
    I was hypnotized, I felt paralyzed
    But late at night I still want you just the same

    I've been a gambler, but I'm nobody's fool
    And I sure know something, sure know something
    You showed me things they never taught me in school
    And I sure know something, sure know something
    No one can make me feel the way that you do
    And I sure know something, aha

    I was seventeen, you were just a dream
    I was mesmerized, I felt scared inside
    You broke my heart and I still can feel the pain

    I've been counted out, I've had fear and doubt
    I've been starry eyed, never satisfied
    Cause late at night I still need you just the same
    Just the same

    I've been a gambler, but I'm nobody's fool
    And I sure know something, sure know something
    You showed me things they never taught me in school
    And I sure know something, sure know something
    No one can make me feel the way that you do
    And I sure know something, aha

    I've been counted out, I've had fear and doubt
    I've been starry eyed, never satisfied
    Cause late at night I still need you just the same
    Just the same, yeah

    I've been a gambler, but I'm nobody's fool
    And I sure know something, sure know something
    You showed me things they never taught me in school
    And I sure know something, sure know something
    No one can make me feel the way that you do
    And I sure know something, sure know something
    No one can tell me till I hear it from you
    And I sure know something, sure know something
    I've been a gambler, but I'm nobody's fool
    Sure know something, sure know something
    You showed me things they never taught me in school
    Sure know something, sure know something
    No one can make me feel the way that you do Writer/s: PAUL STANLEY, VINI PONCIA

  • Ray from Lodi, NjI love this song. especially the unplugged version.
  • Jason from Denver, CoI sure know something,KISS should think of new costumes. They do have a new album due in 2009. maybe they could go back to the hotter than hell costumes they were cool. WAIT A TICK, I should be saying UNIFORMS after all this is the KISS ARMY we're talking about...right?
  • Dave from Melbourne, AustraliaI love this song. Awesome power ballad by a great band.
  • Axeman from Melbourne, AustraliaYeah, I think he f--ked his teacher; cos the line, 'you taught me things they never taught me at school', seems to imply that his 1st love was 1 of his female teachers at high school

    He got EXTRA curricular lessons! cos he was a 'promising' student! ;o)
