Rex Orange County - Know Love Lyrics




Not sure what you're looking for
You won't find it here
I attempt to stay, attempt to stay at home
And try to keep my mind clear
Overthinking again
Are my problems deeper than me?
I guess they're deeper than meaning
The more you think about it
So it's always worse than it seems
Overthinking again
Well she was only sixteen

All the things you think about
We'll join the lonely souls and sing this out

I just wanna know love
(Mother won't you tell me)
When will I know love?
(Baby please forgive me)
Not able to show love
There is no love for me
I just wanna know love
(Mother won't you tell me)
When will I know love?
(Baby please forgive me)
Not able to show love
There is no love for me

And I didn't know what you wanted
And you didn't know that I was trouble
And we didn't know what could happen, what could happen
I've become sheltered
More than ready for action
And I feel like I forgotten how it feels to feel satisfaction
And well, at night I can't sleep
I don't have to count sheep
I just gotta count my blessings and the people around me
And stay on my damn feet
Overthinking again, I'm overthinking again

Well all the things you think about
Join the lonely souls and sing this out

I just wanna know love
(Mother won't you tell me)
When will I know love?
(Baby please forgive me)
Not able to show love
There is no love for me
I just wanna know love
(Mother won't you tell me)
When will I know love?
(Baby please forgive me)
Not able to show love
There is no love for me

I just wanna know love
I just wanna know love
(I just wanna know)
I just wanna know love
I just wanna know love
(I just wanna know)
I just wanna know love
(I just wanna know)
I just want to know love
I just wanna know love
I just wanna know love

    I love rex and all of his songs so much, this song really gets me

  11. Definitely Not Dingse!

    The hook at the end of the chorus is actually really complex, even compared to Rex’s jazzy song writing. I got out of bed this morning and remembered it but couldn’t remember where it was from. I thought it could be some fusion jazz band like snarky puppy or maybe some 90’s R&B like D’Angelo... I looked through almost every Vulfpeck album before realizing it was Rex god dammit. Awesome track!

  12. FlowerPower D

    when he said "She was only 16" I thought he was being jail baited LMAO

    Definitely Not Dingse!

    Plot twist, HE was only 16

    Peace Sells

    Yeah he’s only 21 currently and he was 16-17 when he made this song

  39. chalk powder

    this resonates with me so much

  40. Elijah Oliver

    @senif amazing song

  41. Adriana Lee

    okay but why is every song marked explicit when not all of them are?? can this be changed by him?

  42. gracie bowen

    as a fan of Rex, I love most of his songs including some of the underrated ones and some of the more “popular”(putting popular in quotations since he isn’t really big yet) songs. But this one really butters my biscuit.

    Sameron Cameron

    Why is it that in every comment you I see of you on a rex video you mention that he's not popular

    Deckey 934

    It’s the keyboard. It creates dissonance within its self due to the sheer amount of vibrato that it’s set to which, when used correctly, will make a really pleasing contrast. The syncopation in some parts of the song also help by giving it an almost dance type of groove

  43. Tom Guerrero

    Subscribed like a mf

  44. Oof Oof

    All his songs deserve recognition they are all equally amazing

  45. Sushma KC

    So frickin' underrated

  46. Grace G

  47. woob

    [Verse 1]
    Not sure what you're looking for

    [Chorus]
    I just wanna know love
    (Mother won't you tell me)
    When will I know love?
    (Baby please forgive me)
    Not able to show love
    There is no love for me

    And I didn't know what you wanted

    (Baby please forgive me)
    Not able to show love
    There is no love for me


    [Outro]
    I just wanna know love
    I just wanna know love
    (I just wanna know)
    I just wanna know love
    I just wanna know love
    (I just wanna know)
    I just wanna know love
    (I just wanna know)
    I just want to know love
    I just wanna know love
    I just wanna know love

  50. Leonard Hernandez

    I jus want to know why RnB lost its thing an now the soul is trasfering to indie music like if he was Black it would be BrB but he's a white artist so its considered indie rock is don't get it

    chalk powder

    Leonard Hernandez Yeah I think that’s weird too. He has a huge RnB vibe

    Lil Dee and the Honey Dips

    That’s a really good point

    Michael Flores

    I disagree. He puts a lot of emotion and heart into his songs but this doesn't necessarily make it R&B. R&B has a certain style to it. Listen to someone like Miguel and you see a huge difference in the overall tone of music.

    Definitely Not Dingse!

    Michael Flores there are a lot of different r&b styles. Stevie wonder was r&b, but so is Usher.

  51. yung drea

    this is me 💔

  52. Braelon Chapton

    oh wOW LITERALLY MY NEW FAVE BAND💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖

  53. Carly

    Alex is too good why isn’t he more popular it angers me

    Ruby D'Arcy

    it'd probably anger you if he was popular lmao

  54. angie Flores

    Need to be popular!!!!

  55. Hattie Lewis

    so unique and beautiful
