“I Know You Know” Esperanza Spalding

The way you look at me
When you think I’m not looking
Tells me your heart’s a sleeping giant
Worn out by someone
You loved before me
I see you’re scared, unconvinced by
What I’ve tried to say- that I am yours
And that nothing will take me away

You already know, but I’ll sing it again
I love you, babe
And nothing will take me away
I know that you know, but I’ll sing it again
I love you, babe
And nothing will take me away

The way you always call me
With some question
And every time try to pretend
You didn’t call me just cause
I was on your mind
Too soon for you to say out loud
But I know you love me
And though we don’t say it
It already shows

I wait for you to open up
But it’s not a bore
You’re just what I’ve been
Looking for
Why do you keep your head in the sand?
Whoever you loved before me that ran
Is nothing like me
Nothing like me

The way you look at me
When you think I’m not looking
The way you call me up
Just to see what’s cooking
The way you look at me
When you think I’m not looking
I look at you that way, too
You just don’t know
That I do

You already know, but I’ll sing it again
I love you, babe
And nothing will take me away
I know that you know, but I’ll sing it again
I love you, babe
And nothing will take me away

I know that you know
You already know
