No One Knows

Album: Was It Not (2020)
  • I hold these moments in my mind
    Keep thinking you will do it right
    No, I don't always let you in (In, in, in)
    But you keep trying (Trying, trying)

    Pulling my heart out like you've got the key
    I've never known it to be that easy

    Below the surface, I get nervous
    I just want to let you know
    If things get weird, then disappear and
    No one knows where we could go
    And I don't wanna leave, no
    But I don't wanna lead you on
    We can take it day by day
    And we can know where this'll go

    It's all good when you look like that
    And I'm feeling myself, you don't have to look back, no
    One day, we won't look the same
    When you look like that, will I know your name?
    It's all good when you look like that
    And I'm feeling myself, you don't have to look back, no
    One day, we won't look the same
    When you look like that, will I know your name?

    I play this horror in my mind
    I've watched you leave so many times
    No, you're not worried anymore (More, more, more, more)
    But I've been here before (Here before, here before)

    I've watched loved crumble out from underneath
    I've been so bitter, how are you so sweet?

    Below the surface, I get nervous
    I just want to let you know
    If things get weird, then disappear and
    No one knows where we could go
    And I don't wanna leave, no
    But I don't wanna lead you on
    We can take it day by day
    And we can know where this'll go

    It's all good when you look like that
    And I'm feeling myself, you don't have to look back, no
    One day, we won't look the same
    When you look like that, will I know your name?
    It's all good when you look like that
    And I'm feeling myself, you don't have to look back, no
    One day, we won't look the same
    When you look like that, will I know your name?

    (Will I know your—)
    (Will I know your name?)
    (I hold these moments in my mind, mind, mind)
    (Will I know your—)
    (Will I know your name?)
    (Will I know your—)
    (Will I know your name?)
    (Will I know your—)
    No one knows, no one knows
    (Will I know your name?)

    Below the surface, I get nervous
    I just want to let you know
    If things get weird, then disappear and
    No one knows where we could go
    And I don't wanna leave, no
    But I don't wanna lead you on
    We can take it day by day
    And we can know where this'll go

    It's all good when you look like that
    And I'm feeling myself, you don't have to look back, no
    One day, we won't look the same
    When you look like that, will I know your name?
    It's all good when you look like that
    And I'm feeling myself, you don't have to look back, no
    One day, we won't look the same
    When you look like that, will I know your name?
