If I Knew Then

Album: Need You Now (2010)
  • The first time that I saw you
    Looking like you did,
    We were young
    We were restless
    Just two clueless kids,
    But if I knew then
    What I know now
    I'd fall in love.

    You're on a bus in Chicago
    Three rows to the left
    You know my heart
    Is racing for you
    But we'd never even met
    If I knew then
    What I know now
    I'd fall in love.

    'Cause love only comes
    Once in a while
    And knocks on your door
    And throws you a smile
    And takes every breath,
    Leaves every scar,
    Speaks through your soul
    And sings to your heart
    But if I knew then
    What I know now
    I'd fall in love.

    On a summer night
    In August
    Backseat of my car
    Said I'm trying to get
    To know you,
    I took it way too far
    But if I knew then
    What I know now
    I'd fall in love.

    Whoa
    'Cause love only comes
    Once in a while
    And knocks on your door
    And throws you a smile
    And takes every breath,
    Leaves every scar,
    Speaks to your soul
    And sings through your heart
    But if I knew then
    What I know now
    I'd fall in love.

    Whoa
    I used up
    A lot of chances
    But you give them back
    But if again
    It comes crawling
    I'm gonna make it last

    'Cause love only comes
    Once in a while
    And knocks on your door
    And throws you a smile
    It takes every breath,
    Leaves every scar,
    Speaks through your soul
    And sings to your heart
    If I knew then
    What I know now

    Whoa
    If I knew then
    What I know now

    I'd fall in love Writer/s: CHARLES KELLEY, RICHARD BELMONT (MONTY) POWELL, ANNA WILSON
