  • Take a look, look into my eyes
    You'll see someone you don't recognize
    You'll see someone who looks like me
    But I'm not the me I used to be
    Found I could fall, but I could get up
    And after all, I could hold my head up
    I made it out, I made it through
    I'm someone now, I'm someone new
    But you could say you knew me then
    You could say you knew me when

    You knew me when I was on the edge
    And my confidence was shattered
    You knew me when I didn't know my worth
    Didn't know how much I mattered
    You knew me when you thought you could get me down, no
    You knew me when, you knew me then
    But you don't know me now

    You look surprised to see I've changed
    But I've turned the key and I've turned the page
    Stepped out the dark into the sun
    To a whole new me that I've become
    I was scared, had so much fear then
    Now I'm free, now I'm fearless
    Took too much for too long
    I'm someone now, I'm someone strong
    And you could say you knew me then
    You could say you knew me when

    You knew me when I was on the edge
    And my confidence was shattered
    You knew me when I didn't know my worth
    Didn't know how much I mattered
    You knew me when you thought you could get me down, no
    You knew me when, you knew me then
    But you don't know me now

    I'm a little wiser, reaching higher
    It's a battle but I'm a fighter
    This time there'll be no surrender, no
    And you could say you knew me when
    You could say you knew me when

    You knew me when I was on the edge
    And my confidence was shattered
    You knew me when I didn't know my worth
    Didn't know how much I mattered
    You knew me when you thought you could get me down, no
    You knew me when
    You knew me when, you knew me then
    But you don't know me now
    You knew me then, you knew me when
    But you don't know me now Writer/s: DIANE EVE WARREN
