P!nk – Who Knew lyrics

[Verse 1]
You took my hand, you showed me how,
You promised me you'd be around,
Uh huh, that's right.
I took your words and I believed
In everything you said to me,
Yeah huh, that's right

If someone said three years from now,
You'd be long gone,
I'd stand up and punch them out,
Cause they're all wrong.
I know better,
'Cause you said forever, and ever,
Who knew

[Verse 2]
Remember when we were such fools,
And so convinced and just too cool,
Oh no, no, no.
I wish I could touch you again,
I wish I could still call you a friend,
I'd give anything.

When someone said count your blessings now,
For they're long gone,
I guess I just didn't know how,
I was all wrong.
They knew better,
Still you said forever, and ever,
Who knew.

Yeah yeah,
I'll keep you locked in my head,
Until we meet again.
Until we, until we meet again,
And I won't forget you, my friend,
What happened.

If someone said three years from now,
You'd be long gone,
I'd stand up and punch them out,
Cause they're all wrong and.
And that last kiss, I'll cherish,
Until we meet again.
And time makes, it harder,
I wish I could remember!
But I keep, your memory,
You visit me in my sleep.
My darling,
Who knew?

My darling, my darling,
Who knew?
My darling, I miss you,
My Darling,
Who knew?
Who knew?

    The song's actually about a girl losing her boyfriend to drugs. He overdoses while he's on a harsh high and she finds him. That's why she says, "I'll keep you locked in my head, until we meet again." and "That last kiss, I'll cherish, until we meet again." And like when she's saying, "If someone said... blah blah blah" it's like, "I never thought you'd be gone." Like, dead. It's a really sad song. Especially if you see the music video.

    It's really about when P!nk was on drugs with her best friend at the age of 14. She got caught into it and her friend showed her how to take drugs and when she says "they were all wrong" it means they thought she wouldn't be able to get out of them, but she did. She stopped because one day after school, I think, she walked into her friends house to find her led on the floor dead because of drugs. P!nk says that she has been on drugs but she doesn't like to talk about it much. But yes, she confesses to drugs. It doesn't change who she is though, P!nk is P!nk. On drugs or not, she is still an amazing singer and if people hate her for this, they should know it's not her fault, we all do stupid things in our lives. At least she stopped.

    My boyfriend just broke up with me a week ago because he didn't think things would work between us. I've heard this song before and it always made me want to cry a little but when I heard it again just a few minutes ago I just bursted into tears. Especially the part where she sang "still you said forever". My ex said he would love me forever: '(: '(

    I think it's about a couple who figured that they would be together forever, and were lost in the throws of young love, although they were truly in love. Then, some force that neither of them could control, took one of them away, and the other is truly hurt. She doesn't know what to do, and she doesn't feel anger, just sadness that she can't be with him. Deep down she knows that she won't see him again, but she is fostering hope anyways, and is incredulous that neither of them, nor anyone else could see this tradgedy coming, thus "Who Knew?"

    To me this song is about a person, friend, lover or family member who basically took your hand and showed you ow to do drugs and basically when you realize it's not the way to go you want to get out but not only that you wish to take them with you way from the bad things but they decieded that there addiction is more important then you(or the person singing the song) so asically as tree bugg says drugs are chosen over you reminds me of my friends carlos brandon and cecilia but oh well who knew:/
