Adams, Oleta - I Knew You When Lyrics




You come home and get lost in the evening news
I wish we could talk but somehow we never do
You don't even ask me how my day has been
Looks like one of those evenings again
We sit here like strangers
I don't know you anymore

I knew you when you needed me
I used to make your world go round
You used to open up your heart and let me in
Why can't you now like you did then
I knew you when

I used to see nothing but love in your eyes
Now you look at me, it's enough to make me cry
Little by little you're slipping away
So much is said in the words you don't say
Don't you remember when you were mine
Oh, there was a time

I knew you when you needed me
I used to make your world go round
You used to open up your heart and let me in
Why can't you now like you did then
I knew you when

I knew you when you needed me
I used to make your world go round
You used to open up your heart and let me in
Why can't you now like you did then
I knew you when
Oh, why can't you now like you did then
I knew you when

    OLETA ADAMS I KNEW YOU WHEN


    You come home and get lost in the evening news


    I wish we could talk but somehow we never do


    You don't even ask me how my day has been


    It looks like one of those evenings again


    We sit here like strangers, I don't know you anymore


    I knew you when you needed me


    I used to make your world go round


    You used to open up your heart and let me in


    Why can't you now, like you did then


    I knew you when?


    I used to see nothing but love in your eyes


    Now you look at me it's enough to make me cry


    Little by little you're slipping away


    So much is said in the words you don't say


    Don't you remember when you were mine


    Oh, there was a time


    I knew you when you needed me


    I used to make your world go round


    You used to open up your heart and let me in


    Why can't you now, like you did then


    I knew you when?


    I knew you when you needed me


    I used to make your world go round


    You used to open up your heart and let me in


    Why can't you now, like you did then


    I knew you when?


    Oh, why can't you now, like you did then


    I knew you when?

  9. Wongs Mduma

    There was a time when winter season had befallen my biological family. We'd listen to Oleta Adams just to seek comfort. Little did we know that God was offering us special training for this life's curriculum.I would listen to this track in particular. Oleta Adams......you're my girl.

    Erehistruth

    Michele Ludovico De Candia Yes she is. She is definitely a underrated legend.

  22. Provocateur of so-called Heresy

    Great song. Great vocalist. Great music. Great upload. Don't judge the quality of this song by the number of viewers. Sometimes the rarest, most worthy treasures of music and vocalists go hidden like diamonds.
