You Thought I Knew

by Andrew Morton   Sep 22, 2007


I know that i've got it made
when i cant find the words to say
and to my dismay
i wouldnt have it any other way

i did what i said id never do
i let myself fall in love with you
do we know what were getting in to
could it be a love so true?

its only after we are without
we start to forget what its all about
theres no reason to scream or shout
when there's nothing left to figure out

the greatest love i never knew
until that day that i met you
the sweetest words i never said
can still depict what lays ahead
the only mistake i ever made
showing my heart in the masquerade
you stare at me without a clue
i guess you thought i knew

we both know we're already there
and neither of us would even dare
no rhyme or reason to go anywhere
not a single place better than here

its easy to forget what its all about
when there's nothing left to figure out

the greatest love i never knew
until that day that i met you
the sweetest words i never said
can still depict what lays ahead
the only mistake i ever made
showing my heart in the masquerade
you stare at me without a clue
i guess you thought i knew

the most beautiful woman ive ever met
glad to say that theres no regrets
feeling things i've never felt
now there's nothing left to figure out

    Andrew,
    This sounds like a lyrics to a country song! That's what I felt when I read this. This is absolutely amazing, wonderfully written in every way!
    OH MY GOSH!! Where to begin showing my favourite lines... probably the last 4 lines of the chorus...

    the only mistake i ever made
    showing my heart in the masquerade
    you stare at me without a clue
    i guess you thought i knew

    I love how the imagery just pours out. I seriously can just picture being at a ball, being the girl you're in love with... and seeing you standing out in the crowd, holding your heart in your hands towards me, while everyone else attending is in costume... It gave me the chills..
    And the last two lines... WOW... You stare at me without a clue/I guess you thought I knew..
    Your girl's in bewilderment, and I know I can say I've been there.. cuz I have. It's like, finally, out of nowhere one time, guys have these "visions", so to say. And it happened to me just last night actually. My guy told me a bunch of things, and I was like... "WHAT?! You only figured it out now, how much I am in love wiht you?!?!"
    Ya.. I guess you can say this poem it really hard home for me.. thanks so much for writing it Andrew.

    This poem was quite sweet and beautiful. It was truely heart warming and showed beautiful emotions which you portrayed in depth into this piece. From the start you had me hooked and kept me right into until the very end. Such an elegant piece. Well done on creating this. A great read. ~Mel
