Jones, Howard - You Knew Us So Well Lyrics




Did we fail to see you crumble
Did we watch you fade to black
Jaw hanging brain aching no one can handle
Did we forget?
To understand
Did you have it planned?
We all thought that we knew you so well

So much love to give and take
Many dreams and plans to make
Can't believe it we knew you so well

Hardly bare to think what you went through
As your feet fell through the air
Hanging in a void of hopeless darkness
Way beyond despair
But you made us doubt
We would've heard your cry
Of desolation
We went there as well

So much love to give and take
Must go on to celebrate
What you gave us
You knew us so well

Rippling through a generation
Aftershocks for years to come
The angry final step is taken
Never to be undone
On the other side
Was a wave to ride
Through the storm cloud
To bring you to shore

So much love to give and take
Must go on to celebrate
What you gave us
You knew us so well

    People were nice those days 1980s not today 2019 they are vile country gone down hill in the UK this video is.

  6. carnut6772

    11 persons didn't get to know the one they wanted

  7. MozDie Loz

    It's nice to know young people then looked as ridiculous as they do now ( although at the time I thought Howard's style looked normal! ). No new songs are as good as Howard's though!

  8. sarah jones

    Howard Jones good artist he is walking around Central London diverse city walking up to charing Cross Station and along the strand and greeting people, good days in the 1980s people had respect and manners in the UK. People were happy and free spirited those days.

    "Like To Get To Know You Well"

    Like to get to know you well
    Like to get to know you well
    Like to get to know you well
    So we can be one
    We can be one together

    Like to get to know you well
    Like to get to know you well
    Like to get to know you well
    So we can be one
    We can be one together

    Together

    Together we can cast away the fear
    Together we can wipe away the tear
    Together we can strip down the barriers
    And be one

    Don't wanna talk about the weather
    Don't wanna talk about the news
    Just wanna get to the real you inside

    Like to get to know you well
    Like to get to know you well
    Like to get to know you well
    So we can be one
    We can be one together

    Like to get to know you well
    Like to get to know you well
    Like to get to know you well
    So we can be one
    We can be one together

    Don't you think now is the time
    We should be feelin'
    Just wanna simply say
    Won't let you slip away

    People wanna talk about the future
    Don't wanna linger on the past
    Just wanna reach the real you inside
    Forget cold glances and rejections
    Leave the things that separate
    Build on a trust that we must stand on

    Like to get to know you well
    Like to get to know you well
    Like to get to know you well
    So we can be one
    We can be one together

    Together

    Finding all are insecure
    Opening the same door
    Leaving out a stubborn pride
    Seeing from the other side

    Like to get to know you well
    Like to get to know you well
    Like to get to know you well
    So we can be one
    We can be one together

    Like to get to know you well

    We can be one together

    Like to get to know you well
    Like to get to know you well
    Like to get to know you well
    So we can be one
    We can be one together

    Like to get to know you well
    Like to get to know you well
    Like to get to know you well
    So we can be one
    We can be one together

  14. james

    I love you ,London.

  15. Andy JS

    This song is about the 1984 Olympic Games (in Los Angeles).

  16. scneese64

    I adore the story Howard told about when they translated this song for Japan that he received phone calls from I'm assuming his record label stating that this song will ruin his career because when they translated it the translation was "I want to force myself upon you".  Luckily for Howard the situation was rectified.  LOL

  17. kaczorek73

    Great song with a great message.

  18. InProgress

    This version is much better than the other one! Gives me goosebumps....(the whole song actually)

  42. Jules Bouillon

    Love this. It reminds me of why I came back to London- I enjoy the multiracial exuberance of this
    fine city (apart from the fact I was born here

    sarah jones

    Other UK cities are segregated and racist and no where as multicultural as London is so many cultures and tolerance.
