I never knew you






“This next song asks the question, ‘Why do we forget things?’ Especially like our exes or past relationships, why do we forget what they were about and why we left? You know, you leave a relationship and a couple months later you’re like, ‘Well, it wasn’t that bad.’ Then you call the person, you’re like, ‘Ooh…oh gosh.’ It’s not like that all the time, but what is that, what is it, what is it about our humanness that we forget? We remember, we forget, we remember, we forget, and I think it’s just for the opportunity of enlightenment, the opportunity awakened again and again and again because it feels good. It feels good to remember our greatness. You know? It wouldn’t be so bright if there wasn’t a shadow every once in a while. Yeah so anyway, remember, forget, remember, forget, this song is about forgetting and remembering, and I realized it’s so that we can achieve enlightenment, but then, alas! We all still have to do our fucking laundry.”

Jason Mraz - I Never Knew You - Live is a Four Letter Word

“Tell me a secret, tell me anything
What’s your weapon? What’s your middle name?
What do you believe in? What’s your animal? Are you a cat or a dog person?
What’s your outlook? What’s your favourite saying?
Hey, maybe you laugh, maybe you laugh a lot
And maybe you started, but you somehow quit the part
Well, you may be a hippy, and a democrat
Yeah I remember that, I think
And you might like wine, but you’re not the type who likes to drink

What made me forget everything I know?
All my beliefs replaced by scenarios
Of unintelligent life, echoing in stereo
On invisible mics, wired into my mind

So I would like another look inside you (I would like to look inside you)
Yes I would love the chance to love you
Like I’ve never known you

Well, maybe you’re sleepin’ on the telephone
And maybe you’re dreamin’ of an anglophone with a crooked smile
And maybe you’re profile boasts a brand new nose
And maybe your new job, it requires that you cannot wear any clothes

What made me forget everything I know?
All my beliefs replaced by scenarios
Of unintelligent life, echoing in stereo
On invisible mics, wired into my mind

So I would like another look inside you
Yes, I would love the chance to love you
Like I’d never known you

Well, maybe your favourite colour is brown (to go with lemon and grey)
And maybe you’re crying, and you’re not sure why
Well, maybe you’re livin’ in a whole new town
And maybe you’re back with your old boyfriend and you’re busy going down

What made me forget everything?
All my beliefs, all my memories
All the episodes of you, especially the ones that hurt
And even the few that made me laugh
Well, I can’t get them back

So I would like another look inside you
Yes, I would love the chance to love you
I would love to love you!

What made me forget everything I know?
All my beliefs, replaced by scenarios
Of unintelligent life, echoing in stereo
On invisible mics, wired into my mind

So I would like another look inside you
Yes I would love the chance to love you
I would love to love you

Yes, you…
Whoever you are now…
I would love the chance to love you, like I’ve never known you”

— I Never Knew You, Jason Mraz
