I've known for a long time
The kind of girl you are.
And a smile that covers teardrops,
The way your head yields to your heart.
Of things you've kept inside
That most girls couldn't bear,
Well, I've known you for a long time,
But I've just begun to care.

Yes, I've known of all the heartheaches
And I've known of all the pain,
I've seen you when the the sun shines
And I've seen you when it rains.
I've seen you make a look of love
From just an icy stare.
Well, I've known you for a long time,
But I've just begun to care.

I know I've been blind,
To not have loved you all this time.
To not have loved you all this time.
But the image of you wasn't clear.
I guess I've been standing too near.

It's taken me a while
But I have finally found
What you are to me
And that's what really counts,
And what you are to me
Is something we can share.
Well, I've known you for a long time,
But I've just begun to care.
Yes, I've known you for a long time,
But I've just begun to care.
