Carpenters, The - For All We Know Lyrics

Love, look at the two of us
Strangers in many ways
We've got a lifetime to share
So much to say
And as we go
From day to day
I'll feel you close to me
But time alone will tell
Let's take a lifetime to say
"I knew you well"
For only time will tell us so
And love may grow
For all we know.

Love, look at the two of us
Strangers in many ways
Let's take a lifetime to say
"I knew you well"
For only time will tell us so
And love may grow

For all we know.

Carpenters, The For All We Know Comments
  1. C B

    The lyrics of this song are unsurpassed in beauty, meaning and poetry. And her voice has the clear ring that you hear from pure crystal glass.

  2. Andrew Francisco

    I was born in 1975.I was too young to be into The Carpenters. As a kid in the 80's I had heard of Karen Carpenter's death. Her death always stayed with me. I discovered the music in 2015. The Carpenters were and are great.

  3. Gerhard Olm

    Still beautiful !

  4. Shadow's Russ

    If only she knew how beautiful she sang and how much she touched each of us, would she have hurt herself so much?

  5. Yoswin Freeman

    Her voice is of a goddess.

  6. Tom Jefferson

    236 People must not have a Soul!

    I was totally in love with her when I was 12. They had just released "Close to You", "Only Just Begun", "Rainy Days" and "For All We Know". I wanted to marry a girl just like her. "For All We Know" is my favorite.

    Most beautiful voice ever it's such a shame she was so stupid. Eat something you moron


    You seem to be completely ignorant of the fact that anorexia nervosa is a MENTAL DISEASE. You don't choose to have a mental disease. It has nothing to do with intelligence or even willpower. And once you get it you are stuck with it as they are notoriously difficult to cure and the most a person suffering from it can hope is to get enough support from family, friends and society to be able to keep the disease under control long enough to be able to have a chance at a normal life. Unfortunately, anorexia nervosa not only clouds the mind but it's effects are deadly for the body, which is why if the patient doesn't get the help and emotional support she/he needs the body succumbs and the patient dies. Which is exactly what happened to Karen.


    Micheal... Do you have any idea what your comment says about you? Two words come to mind..,.. Immature...,. and prick..,

  35. nomopayn

    The voice of Karen Anne Carpenter...The sweetest most feminine soothing voice you will ever hear.. That sweet voice could calm the savage beast.. Sublime! ...R.I.P Karen will always be missed forever as long as your songs are heard...

    This could have been based on a Mozart symphony, it has that feel, especially at the end.

    I truly admire not only her voice, but the fact that she knew how to sing without inhaling every breath to the point you could hear it. Truly a professional!!

  40. TheRealCybelline

    Remember, this was before Auto-Tune kept singers on key. Amazing. I still remember exactly where I was when I heard about her death. Gut wrenching. Still, grateful for the music.

    This may be my favorite carpenters song although Only Yesterday was damn good, too. I wasn't a real huge fan on thiers, but did like some of their songs. She certainly didn't deserve the fate she suffered.
