  • Ah-ah, he-ey
    Ah-ah, ah-ah
    Ah-ah, he-ey
    Ah-ah, ah-ah

    He knows
    Dirty secrets that I keep
    Does he know it's killing me?
    He knows, he knows
    D-d-does he know
    Another's hands have touched my skin
    I won't tell him where I've been
    He knows, he knows, he knows

    It's tearing me apart
    She's slipping away
    Am I just hanging on to all the words she used to say?
    The pictures on her phone
    She's not coming home (I'm not coming home)
    Coming home, coming home

    I know what you did last summer (ah-ah)
    Just lied to me, "there's no other" (he-ey)
    I know what you did last summer
    Tell me where you've been
    I know what you did last summer (ah-ah)
    Look me in the eyes, my lover (he-ey)
    I know what you did last summer
    Tell me where you've been

    I know, I know, I know, I know
    I know, I know, I know (ah-ah)
    (He-ey)
    I know, I know, I know, I know
    I know, I know, I know (ah-ah, ah-ah)
    I didn't mean it, no, I didn't mean it, mean it, no
    (Ah-ah, he-ey)
    Can't seem to let you go, can't seem to hold you close
    I know

    When she looks me in the eyes
    They don't seem as bright
    No more, no more
    I know
    That she loved me at one time
    Would I promise her that night
    Cross my heart and hope to die

    It's tearing me apart (it's tearing me apart)
    She's slipping away (i'm slipping away)
    Am I just hanging on to all the words she used to say?
    The pictures on her phone
    She's not coming home (I'm not coming home)
    Oh, na, na, na, yeah

    I know what you did last summer (ah-ah)
    Just lied to me, "there's no other" (he-ey)
    I know what you did last summer
    Tell me where you've been
    I know what you did last summer (ah-ah)
    Look me in the eyes, my lover (he-ey)
    I know what you did last summer
    Tell me where you've been

    I know, I know, I know, I know
    I know, I know, I know
    I know, I know, I know, I know
    I know, I know, I know (no, no, no)
    Can't seem to let you go, can't seem to keep you close
    (Hold me close)
    Can't seem to let you go, can't seem to keep you close
    (You know I didn't mean it, though)
    Tell me where you've been lately
    Tell me where you've been lately
    (Just hold me close)
    Tell me where you've been lately
    Tell me where you've been lately
    (Don't, don't, don't, don't let me go)
    Can't seem to keep you close, can't seem to let you go
    (I didn't mean it, though)
    I know you didn't mean it, though
    I know you didn't mean it, though
    (I don't wanna let you go)
    Tell me you didn't mean it, though
    Tell me you didn't mean it, though (no, no, no)
    (Can't seem to let you go, seem to let you go)
    I know you didn't mean it, though. I wanna know you mean it though
    (Hold me close)
    I know you didn't mean it though
    I know you didn't mean it though
    I can't seem to let you go, can't seem to hold you close

    I know what you did last summer (ah-ah)
    Just lied to me, "there's no other" (he-ey)
    I know what you did last summer
    Tell me where you've been
    I know what you did last summer (ah-ah)
    Look me in the eyes, my lover (he-ey)
    I know what you did last summer
    Tell me where you've been

    I know, I know, I know, I know
    I know, I know, I know (ah-ah)
    (He-ey)
    I know, I know, I know, I know
    I know, I know, I know (ah-ah, ah-ah)
    I know, I know, I know, I know
    I know, I know, I know (ah-ah)
    (He-ey)
    I know, I know, I know, I know
    I know, I know, I know (ah-ah, ah-ah)
