VOCAL: Tracie Higgins

“IF I KNEW THEN WHAT I KNOW NOW”
IS WHAT MOST PEOPLE SAY,
AS IF SOME PRIOR WISDOM,
COULD UNDO SOME YESTERDAY.
I PREFER TO TURN THE PHRASE
AS FAR AS I’M CONCERNED,
THERE ARE CERTAIN THINGS IN LIFE,
I WISHED I’D NEVER LEARNED.

IF I DIDN'T KNOW NOW,
WHAT I DIDN'T KNOW THEN,
I KNOW I COULD FALL
IN LOVE AGAIN.
HOW I WISH I COULD STOP,
AND REMEMBER WHEN-
I DIDN'T KNOW NOW,
WHAT I DIDN'T KNOW THEN.

IF I DIDN'T SEE HERE,
WHAT I DIDN'T SEE THERE,
I KNOW COULD
BRING MYSELF TO CARE.
BELIEVING THAT ALL
IN LOVE IS FAIR,
IF I DIDN'T SEE HERE,
WHAT I DIDN'T SEE THERE.

AND OH, IF I UNDERSTOOD LESS,
AND BELIEVED A BIT MORE.
I KNOW I COULD FEEL
ALL THAT I FELT BEFORE.

AND IF I DIDN'T KNOW ME,
I’D BE CERTAIN YOU,
COULD MAKE ALL MY SWEETEST
DREAMS COME TRUE.
NOW I'VE FORGOTTEN
WHEN LOVE WAS NEW,
IF I DIDN'T KNOW ME,
I’D BE FALLING FOR YOU.

I KNOW I COULD FALL
IN LOVE AGAIN,
IF I DIDN'T KNOW NOW-
WHAT I DIDN'T KNOW THEN.
WHAT I DIDN'T KNOW THEN.
