Didn't Know You - Karmin



The Experience: Then you took the reins... Do you always, do you always get your way... Escaping from a bad, controlling relationship may leave you with bruises, but making it out alive is better than the alternative...

Music video: Still waiting.

The Meaning of Didn't Know You: Karmin sings a broken relationship that was no relationship - at least not one worth having. Because he only wanted to get his way... and she saw the meteor coming from far away, and made it out alive. But not without bruises. There are people who don't love. They just want to take the reins, use, control... and in the end destroy. Make sure you know the person you decide to love. But Karmin does go a little too far down the paranoia slope - everyone's got faces no one sees. Not everyone's out to burn you. There are real people out there. There is real love.

Ask yourself: How do you tell a mask from someone's real face? How can you see someone's real face?

LYRICS:

You said I had it all
You said it took no brains
You promised all the stars
And then you took the reins
I watched it all come down
You set my dreams ablaze
I saw the meteor
Coming from far away

Every word you say is made to please
Oh, I better watch out (yeah)
Everyone's got faces no one sees

Well, I guess I didn't know you at all
I guess I didn't know you at all
No, no, no, no, no, before we fly we have to fall
I guess I didn't know you at all, no no, no no

I made it out alive
A couple bruises fading
And so I cover up
And wear a smiley face
I had to sell my car
And gather up my things
I heard you're on to the next
So they can kiss your ring

Every word you say is made to please
Oh, I better watch out (yeah)
Everyone's got faces no one sees

Well, I guess I didn't know you at all
I guess I didn't know you at all
No, no, no, no, no, before we fly we have to fall
I guess I didn't know you at all, no no, no no

Like a bird of the prey
Out of nowhere you came
Do you always get your way?
Like a bird of the prey
Out of nowhere you came
Do you always, do you always get your way?

Every word you say is made to please
I better watch out
Everyone's got faces no one sees

I guess I didn't know you at all
No, no, I guess I didn't know you at all
No, no, no, before we fly we have to fall
I guess I didn't know you at all
No, no, I guess I didn't know you at all
No, no, I guess I didn't know you at all
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Before we fly we have to fall
I guess I didn't know you at all
Do you always, do you always get your way?

Like a bird of the prey
Out of nowhere you came
Do you always,  do you always get your way?
