If I Knew Then
by Lady Antebellum



The first time that I saw you
Looking like you did,
We were young
We were restless
Just two clueless kids,
But if I knew then
What I know now
I'd fall in love.

You're on a bus in Chicago
Three rows to the left
You know my heart
Is racing for you
But we'd never even met
If I knew then
What I know now
I'd fall in love.

'Cause love only comes
Once in a while
And knocks on your door
And throws you a smile
And takes every breath,
Leaves every scar,
Speaks through your soul
And sings to your heart
But if I knew then
What I know now
I'd fall in love.

On a summer night
In August
Backseat of my car
Said I'm trying to get
To know you,
I took it way too far
But if I knew then
What I know now
I'd fall in love.

Whoa
'Cause love only comes
Once in a while
And knocks on your door
And throws you a smile
And takes every breath,
Leaves every scar,
Speaks to your soul
And sings through your heart
But if I knew then
What I know now
I'd fall in love.

Whoa
I used up
A lot of chances
But you give them back
But if again
It comes crawling
I'm gonna make it last

'Cause love only comes
Once in a while
And knocks on your door
And throws you a smile
It takes every breath,
Leaves every scar,
Speaks through your soul
And sings to your heart
If I knew then
What I know now

Whoa
If I knew then
What I know now

I'd fall in love
