Krauss, Alison - If I Didn't Know Any Better Lyrics




I turned around
Before I could run I found you already settled down in the back of my mind
I know this is just a customary feelin'
The moon is our deceiver that will leave you running blind

Your heart is pullin'
If I didn't know any better
I'd be fallin'
Deeper and deeper it's true
I'd hear it callin'
If I didn't know any better
And I'd be in love with you

Didn't want to
Look in the eyes of the one that I would be drawn to
I'm a moth lost in a fire
And I know this is just a beautiful illusion, a case of the confusion, between love and desire

Your heart is pullin'
If I didn't know any better
I'd be fallin'
Deeper and deeper it's true
I'd hear it callin'
If I didn't know any better
And I'd be in love

When the flame burns out
And fine'ly settles down
And you'd forget I ever came around

Your heart is pullin'
If I didn't know any better
I'd be fallin'
Deeper and deeper it's true
I'd hear it callin'
If didn't know any better
And I'd be in love with you

I turned around
Before I could run I found you already settled down in the back of my mind

Krauss, Alison If I Didn't Know Any Better Comments
  1. fin screenname

    It's been almost 9 years since Paper Airplane. Come on!!!!!

  2. Rickey Engle

    means what,,

  3. Charles Rivers

    i wanna marry her...

  4. Mickey Judge

    Phrasing, enunciation just exquisite. Tone absolutely perfect. Alison is something special.

  5. d wormon

    This might work- keep too the mellow side ??

  6. Razz Muffin

    Fabulous - always...

  7. Tim Olsen

    The minimalist, pressed down and overflowing...

  8. Mickey Judge

    Well I'm a hard core rock and roller and 70's Classic Rock is my music, but I heard Alison Krauss for the first time last night.....and haven't stopped listening. As close to perfection as one can hope to hear. Angelic, oh most definitely. She sings right to your soul. So grateful to have found the videos of this amazing talent! The last live concert I went to was Pearl Jam. The next will be Alison Krauss. Something tells me I won't be disappointed.

    I turned 12 in 1980 so I know what you are saying. Fav band is Boston with the Cars and B-52's close behind and spent a lot of time in the British 80's metal invasion. Liked how rock got dirty after the hair bands with Grunge but then grunge got (lack of a better term) sad. Not dark or scary or in your face or what have you but just sad. "Don't call me Daughter...." not a song I want to bang my head to. Don't get me wrong, I had 10 before anyone I knew and it wasn't on the radio and really liked it until everyone had it and it was on the radio 24/7. Then it was nothing but Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Sound Garden, STP..... and I just stepped away from it and moved to the college stations (99.1 WHFS!!! until they went that way).
    I herd AKUS for the first time by swapping CD's (when we did that way back when) with a friend in 2003. Always liked how bluegrass sounded so clean and on my stereo it sounded real good but nothing more then just stopping along the dial at a radio station if their was a song on. Well we were at a party and are talking about the host's sound system and I mention how good mine sounds playing bluegrass. Not long and the call goes out to all the guests for a blue grass CD. Nothing came back but a AKUS Live cd. We put it in, no one there but one couple had a clue who AKUS was, we were all just shocked. A double CD from beginning to end and no one had a thought to change it. I didn't leave without a copy. Got it home and a few days later I put it in to give it a try on my system and from that point on the CD's followed me from truck (have a nice system in it also) to house for months.
    Since then I have been to two AKUS shows (they tour so little) and both (besides being low volume) were better then the CD's they were touring for. Allison is the real deal and the stuff she does with people like Brad Paisley (Whiskey Lullaby is truly a great song) or Robert Plant are really great but there is something about when Allison and Union Station get together. They just compliment each other layer after layer. Not like one just makes the other better but all of them make everyone multiple times better from being already award winning solo players. Again from someone who loves bands like Rush, Muse and Dream Theater, AKUS is about as close to music perfection I have ever herd.

  9. mike vasseur

    Such a voice and so beautiful love her voice so much.

  10. BRUNNA BAL

    Amei sua música! Inspiradora ✌🏾

  11. ed klitzke

    Супер

  17. Duct Jack

    i first saw her in the early 90s i fell in love with her then still love her today the most beautiful voice ive ever heard

  18. Michael Roberts

    My favorite song from these gifted artists

  19. Michael Whisman

    I bet she's a hellcat in the sack!!!! I'd throw her down and disappoint her sexy ass like she's never been disappointed before!!!!! lol

  20. Jody Wilke

    Looking at all these comments left by men--how ridiculous. Is this the only reason you watch Alison Krauss' music videos, is to ogle over her looks? You don't even mention how extraordinarily talented she is, at singing and playing the fiddle, and you don't say anything about how talented the guys in Union Station are, either. Well, I'm saying it--another great song, by a fabulous group! Thanks, Alison and Union Station!!😊💒

  21. MichaelRMcCoy

    Anyone truly wanting to appreciate Ms Krauss at her very best, (if you are unfamiliar, of course), listen carefully to her 1999 album with Union Station -- "Forget About It".
    By the end, I had fallen in love.

  22. MKK

    Ur my favorite female artist

  23. Dwayne Hunt

    She exudes sexy from every pore. But you'd know it without seeing Her just by her voice. But, she's easy on the eyes too.

  24. Irish Field

    Amazing song love this ever my friend thank you Alison

  25. J Lansdale

    This song has been an anthem of mine for some time now. Like fucking 12 years.

  26. opryhopeful

    I still love you, Alison Krauss, with all my heart, mind, body, and soul. You are the most beautiful girl in the world, not to mention the best singer, ever. I still remember when I first saw you on the Lonesome Pine special back in the early 90's. I finally got to put a beautiful face to the extremely beautiful voice on the radio. You voice stopped me "in my tracks". I was and still are mesmorized by you. I love you, Alison.

  27. John Ervin

    Alison's eyes just melt my heart and her voice melts my soul!😍😍

  28. fin screenname

    OMG Alison, enough with the solo stuff. Even though I have it all its not the same, at all. For someone who doesn't listen to country and even though I like bluegrass/folk some I don't get the same joy as listening to AKUS. Part of my soul is starving with you all absent. Please come back.

  29. Tim D

    She is not underrated she has more awards than anyone, yes anyone

  30. Don Smith

    What a woman! Super talent and down to earth as well.

  31. Joseph Kopsick

    Someone needs to mash this up with the MASH theme song, and "Telescope Eyes" by Eisley

  32. Tim D

    I don't understand how I have not heard this one before but as usual top notch

  33. Lajos Sándor

    Bitang nóta!

  34. Terrilyn

    Ain't that the way it happens too..?

  35. dr. rae christopher

    NEW FAVORITE

  36. Boots!

    Listened to this song today for the first time, absolutely love it.

  37. Ryan Cavanaugh

    Lol...still looking for "proof"? You can't protect your "body" without faith ...can you?

  38. Ralph Painter

    Soothing voice...soft on the eyes...wish Alison would come out with some Red Book Hymnal songs like Alan did...her voice grabs my attention every time I hear her...

  39. Mum Zee

    Scott this is for you

  40. altitude illume

    THICK NOSE

    Terrilyn

    We all know that you are probably perfect huh?
    Relax.. ✌

  41. Shevaron

    I love singing along with this song

  42. Gabriel Csaba

    Angels have angelic cheekbones. That's a fact I was unaware of until just now.

  43. Bobby Cecere

    Her voice is an instrument, not underrated. Few voices come that touch my soul hear

  51. Jeri Devers-Lively

    Love that voice

  52. Jen Campanini

    This video just makes me happy. The band, her voice, and the gorgeous backdrop. Beautiful summer day. I just want to step into the screen. Peace.☀️

  53. MUSIC MAN

    I ried to run...

  54. Blaskeggr

    Sometimes a part of you that died a long time ago is stirred to life by the clarion call of angelic music. I don't figure it happens to everyone and certainly not by the same song, but it happens to me and this song is one of them. So you listen to it again, and it sort of happens again, but not like the first time. You get diminishing returns the more you listen, until you realize that it was only a memory, no matter how intense it was, and you sink back into bittersweet melancholy.

    Such is life.

  55. Ruth Boykin

    Alison has no bad songs! Love all her songs!

  56. John Anthony Gonzales

    Absolutely Awesome musicians and vocals.

  57. tmitch72lv

    Pure perfection!

  58. Brandy Rutherford

    This speaks so much volume to me right.... for me... about me...

  59. MUSIC MAN

    Amazing discovery of this one by her.. I paused it at 1:11:00.. on 1/11/18 to make this comment.. which has and absolutely nothing to do with the way that every song that alison passes through her lips or fiddle is trademarked by her pure heart. Unmistakable, usually being described as Angelic by her mentors to her musical companions, to her long time fans, and to the ears of someone who doesn't know her name or never heard her gifted delivery of sound to their ears. What a Friend to this world she is. ♡🎶! JwM

  60. George Pollastri

    Beautiful !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  61. Nina Santeria

    This song deserves more views! One of my favorite songs.

  62. Michael Parleblue

    Love her so much!

  63. Carina Sutton

    This is what real artists do.

  64. hanover fist

    What a COOL Shirt she is wearing!! Kat/ak

  65. Baba Michael

    Listened to her for the first time in a Virgin Atlantic long haul flight to my dad's funeral. Fell in love with her songs since then. My fav artist Alison Krauss

  66. Kelly Gregg

    Between love and desire. I hear it calling.

  67. mydizzymelody

    I love this cd, saw her in concert with union station when it was released. The set decor was equally gorgeous as this woman and her voice. 100% magnificent! 💖

  68. papa 726 54

    Every time I listen to her sing, I just can't believe there's a woman who can sound that hauntingly beautiful. And then, when the boys harmonize with her,it. just gets better. AMAZING. I find myself listening to them every day now. I'm hooked!

  69. Clt AEW

    OMG....the sound the look the style the band the arrangement I can listen to this lady all day I love it doesn't get any better

  70. Thomas Wahl

    Simply amazing

  71. Barbara Davis

    I think Alison Krause has the purest, truest voice I know. I have loved her music for years.

  72. Mary Kelly

    It's the voice of an angel. And I know because I am known all over the world as an angel. My Guardian Angel, Gabriel, lives with me.

  73. Penny Rogers

    she's a great storyteller.... she's singing my life here

    Come posso ottenere l'immortalità, la respirazione, anche un secondo, la vita del tuo cuore, come avrei potuto mettere piede sulla polvere di stelle, raggiungendo solo uno secondo, il ponte del palmo della mano con un bacio bollente, devozione nome, il vostro corpo segreto, il vostro profumata come una notte d'estate, con il canto di allodole e merli, la tua musica, suono il tuo Alison Krauss & Maria Blue Grass. (poesia Modest scarabocchiato su questo telefono pochi secondi fa, si tenta la traduzione in inglese, francese)
