i’ve loved you before lyrics – melissa etheridge

i think of how you know me,
no doubts no thinking twice.
when your smile can be so soothing,
a familiar paradise.
when there’s no one else that makes me whole.
i have never needing more
i get this feeling i’ve loved you before

we were lovers in an army,
marching all for rome.
side by side in battle,
did we bravely leave our home?
did i hold you in my arms,
as you were taking your last breath?
did shout to all the gods,
that i would love you beyond death?
i swear i’ve loved you before.

did we hide in the dark ages,
from a vengeful god above?
were our names too unfamiliar,
to ever speak of love?
did i cling to every moment with you,
in every parting glance?
an accidental touch,
did we ever take the chance?
i know i’ve loved you before.

have i wandered through the desert?
have i looked and learned all the stars?
have i rode the days and nights on rails,
to get back where you are?
and every time i foundered,
it’s your eyes i know for sure.

when i think of how you know me,
no doubts no thinking twice.
when your smile can be so soothing,
a familiar paradise.
when there’s no one else that makes me whole.
i never wanting more.
i get this feeling.
i know i’ve loved you before.

i know i’ve loved you before
i’ve loved you before
