I've known for a long time the kind of girl you are
Of a smile that covers teardrops, the way your head yields to your heart
Of things you've kept inside that most girls couldn't bear
I've known you for a long time but I've just begun to care.

I've known of all the heartaches and I've known of all the pain
And I've seen you when the sun shines and I've seen you when it rains
I've seen you make a look of love from just an icy stare
I've known you for a long time but I've just begun to care.

I know I've been blind to not have loved you all this time
But the image of you was not clear, I guess I was standin' too near.

It's taken me a while now but I've finally found
Just what you are to me and that's what really counts
'Cause what you are to me is something we can share
I've known you for a long time but I've just begun to care.

I've known of all the heartaches and I've known of all the pain
And I've seen you when the sun shines and I've seen you when it rains
I've seen you make a look of love from just an icy stare
I've known you for a long time but I've just begun to care.
