Pete Yorn – Knew Enough To Know Nothing At All lyrics

(written by Pete Yorn)

You took a baby off her hands
She stole the records from your van
You opened up to her
And made her understand
But you're still locked in that same young love
Still locked in that same young love
You knew enough to know nothing at all
They took the news and distorted it

She was the one who was loving it
She always wanted more than you could give today
So you really can't complain
Once more
You know that she is spoken for
As dreams of life without her fade away

He was a loner
For sixteen years embracing all his defended fears
He could have lost her name
Instead he called today
And he's still feeling that same old way
He's proven what she used to say
He knew enough to know nothing at all
He's still locked in that same young love
A ghost of what he's thinking of
He knew enough
And never should have called
