Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
I knew you when you were lonely
I knew you when you were only
A girl all alone without love          
I knew you when

I knew you when you were sad and all alone
You didn't have anyone that you could call your own
I knew you when your heart belonged to only me
I used to be your only love  Now your love is just a memory

Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
I knew you when you were lonely        
I knew you when you were only
A girl all alone without love          
I knew you when
I knew you when - we used to have a lot of fun

But someone else could offer more      
Now I'm the lonely one
I knew you when you were just a scared little girl
But that was many tears ago  
Before you came up in the world

Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
I knew you when you were lonely        
I knew you when you were only
A girl all alone without love (Yeah yeah yeah)
I knew you when (Yeah yeah yeah)
