Did You Ever Know

by Roberta Flack

[Intro]
You're the only one (whoa whoa oh, yeah)

[Verse 1]
After everything that we've been through
You know there should be something left to say or do
Baby, life is moving on and we're running out of time
Trying to find that perfect love that we've been dreaming of
It's been a lot of pain and I've been hurt too
Between the joy and happiness, we made it through
Baby, let me try to put one more little thing on your mind
One more thing that you should know before you walk out that door, baby

[Chorus]
Did you ever know you were the only one that I ever loved?
The only one
And when I'm sitting there alone in my lonely room
You're the only one I'm thinking of and dreaming of
You were the only one

[Verse 2]
There's been a lot of rumors from your so called friends
Tell me when does rumors start and truth begins
Baby, all I really know is what I feel in my heart
I'm just trying to find a way to make this love stay
If you're walking out, if the flame is burning dim
And if the most that I can be is just a friend
Baby, take a little time before we're too far apart
There's something that I need to say
It can't wait one more day, baby

[Chorus]
Did you ever know you were the only one that I ever loved?
You were the only one
And when I'm sitting there alone in my lonely room
You're the only one I'm thinking of and dreaming of
You were the only one

[Bridge]
I'm half out of my mind, baby, trying to find
The perfect words to try to say I love you more each and every day
After all is said and done, you'll still be the one, whoa whoa
Baby, you were the only one (you're the only one)
You were the only one, you were the one, baby
Did you ever know...

[Chorus]
Did you ever know you were the only one that I ever loved?
You were the only one
And when I'm sitting there alone in my lonely room
You're the only one I'm thinking of and dreaming of
You were the only one
Did you ever know you were the only one that I ever loved?
(Ah, little girl, don't you know it?) The only one
And when I'm sitting there alone in my lonely room
You're the only one I'm thinking of and dreaming of
You were the only one, hey hey
Did you ever know you were the only one that I ever loved?
(Little girl, don't you know?) The only one (Can you feel it, yeah?)
And when I'm sitting there alone in my lonely room
You're the only one I'm thinking of and dreaming of
You were the only one, you were the only one
Did you ever know you were the only one that I ever loved?
The only one
