Lyrically, “Wish I Knew You” takes a nostalgic look at romance from a mature and appreciative point of view.

Song Lyrics

You shine like a star, you know who you are
You’re everything beautiful
She’s hot, hot like the sun, the loneliest one
Still everything beautiful
Well I’ll be god damned you’re standing at my door
We stayed up in the city until the stars lost the war
So Friday night, holy ghost
Take me to your level show me the one I need the most, I need the most

I wish I knew you when I was young
We could’ve got so high
Now we’re here it’s been so long
Two strangers in the bright lights
Oh, I hope you don’t mind
We can share my mood
Two strangers in the bright lights
I wish I knew you, I wish I knew you
Oh, I wish I knew you when I was young

Truth, it’s all that you need, you bury that seed
It’s everything beautiful
That sound comes from the underground, it’s all inside you now
It’s everything beautiful
But what are you running from? They got you on the run?
Take me to your level show me the one I need the most, I need the most

I wish I knew you when I was young
We could’ve got so high
Now we’re here it’s been so long
Two strangers in the bright lights
Oh, I hope you don’t mind
We can share my mood
Two strangers in the bright lights
I wish I knew you, I wish I knew you
Oh, I wish I knew you when I was young
