"I Know" as written by Milton Davis and William Duvall....
I know what you're doing yeah yeah
I know why you dialed my number
I know what you're doing yeah yeah
I know why you care

I know what you're doing yeah yeah
I know why you say you love me
I know what you're doing yeah yeah
And I don't think it's fair

I know why you dialed my number
I know why you say you're mine
I know what you're doing,

And it's not, gonna work, this time
And it's not, gonna work, this time

I know what you're doing yeah yeah
I can never sing in that key
I know what you're doing yeah yeah
And you're the one to blame

I know what you're doing yeah yeah
I know why you can't forgive me
I know why you're singing lost love
The lyrics haven't changed

I can recognize the symptoms
You should know I've changed my mind
I know what you're doing
And it's not, gonna work this time
Hey hey hey, said it's not gonna work this time

I know what you're doing, baby
I know why you call my name
I know why you say you love me
But I can't say the same

    General CommentTo me, this is obvious. It's like, about a person who wants you back and keeps bugging you because they made a mistake, and you know it. You know the truth of their selfish motives. I love this song.

    General Commenti couldn't have put it better myself, inoticethings. that's exactly what this song means to me as well. i love how freely she sings in this, because you can feel how "over it" she is. she's moved past his immaturity and now that he has come back into her life to beg forgiveness and claim he's changed, she can look at his actions now as being ridiculous and not worth her time.

    General CommentHer singing is so effortless and joyful. This song may be 10 years old, and almost dated, but it still sounds just as amazing as it did. The soul is still in it, and I love her careless vocals.

    She's over it, and she doesn't care who knows.

    General CommentLove that song! It was popular in 1995, I was a hs senior. There was this controlling jerk loser I had just dumped and took forever to get rid of... This song was a soundtrack to that time period.
