"You come home and get lost in the evening news
I wish we could talk but somehow we never do
You don't even ask me how my day has been
Looks like one of those evenings again
We sit here like strangers
I don't know you anymore
I knew you when you needed me
I used to make your world go round
You used to open up your heart and let me in
Why can't you now like you did then
I knew you when
I used to see nothing but love in your eyes
Now you look at me - it's enough to make me cry
Little by little you're slipping away
So much is said in the words you don't say
Don't you remember when you were mine
Oh, there was a time
I knew you when you needed me
I used to make your world go round
You used to open up your heart and let me in
Why can't you now like you did then
I knew you when
I knew you when you needed me
I used to make your world go round
You used to open up your heart and let me in
Why can't you now like you did then
I knew you when
Oh, Why can't you now like you did then
I knew you when"
