I Never Knew

What I saw was only all around me
What I knew was all I cared to know
I never dreamed falling out of it could happen
That everything I believed in would let me go
I thought the world was as easy as it seemed
Only scratched the surface, there was more
Your own soul is a poor crutch to lean on
There are things you have to count on others for

Who's there when I cry?
Who cares when I try?
You're there in my life
I'm feeling feelings for the first time
And I don't know why
I never knew I needed you before

I was always kind of a loner
Although you might not have known
I hid behind the mask of coolness
When I danced, I danced alone
It was really hard to keep pretending
When I had a crowd to attend me
I liked the attention that I received
But I was never truly free

Who's there when I cry?
Who cares when I try?
You're there in my life
I'm feeling feelings for the first time
And I don't know why
I never knew I needed you before

If only, I'd known, that things could be so different
If only, you'd shown, me something better sooner
Maybe I wouldn't have been so thoughtless, careless
Maybe I'd care, I know that you're there

Who's there when I cry?
Who cares when I try?
You're there in my life
I'm feeling feelings for the first time
And I don't know why
I never knew I needed you before

Who understands why?
Who always sees what's right?
I held on to something wrong
But now I see the light

I'm feeling feelings and I've never felt so right
I really don't know why
I never knew I needed you before.
