[Smith/Boy]
If I never knew you
If I never felt this love
I would have no inkling of
How precious life can be
If I never held you
I would never have a clue
How at last I'd find in you
The missing part of me
In this world so full of fear
Full of rage and lies
I can see the truth so clear
In your eyes
So dry your eyes
And I'm so grateful to you
I'd have lived my whole life through
Lost forever
If I never knew you

[Pocahontas/Girl]
I thought our love would be so beautiful
Somehow we'd make the whole world bright
I never knew that fear and hate could be so strong
All they'd leave us were these whispers in the night
But still my heart is saying we were right
For If I never knew you

[Next Part, Pocahontas starts earlier and Smith follows after so they are overlaping as they sing the words.]

[Smith/Boy]
There's no moment I regret

[Pocahontas/Girl]
If I never knew this love

[Smith/Boy]
Since the moment that we met

[Pocahontas/Girl]
I would have no inkling of

[Smith/Boy]
If our time has gone too fast

[Pocahontas/Girl]
How precious life can be

[Smith/Boy]
I've lived at last

[Pocahontas' Friend; Speaking]
Pocahontas?

[Pocahontas/Girl; Speaking to Smith]
I can't leave you.

[Smith/Boy; Speaking to Pocahontas]
You never will. No matter what happens to me, I'll always be with you. Forever.

[Smith/Boy; Singing]
And I'm so grateful to you
I'd have lived my whole life through
Empty as the sky

[Pocahontas/Girl]
Never knowing why

[Both]
Lost forever
If I never knew you

    Pocahontas and john smith are singing about how meeting each other has made them so happy, and that if they had never met, they'd feel empty.
