Maybe it's intuition
But some things you just don't question
Like in your eyes, I see my future in an instant
And there it goes,
I think I found my best friend
I know that it might sound
More than a little crazy
But I believe

I knew I loved you before I met you
I think I dreamed you into life
I knew I loved you before I met you
I have been waiting all my life

There's just no rhyme or reason
Only the sense of completion
And in your eyes, I see
The missing pieces I'm searching for
I think I've found my way home
I know that it might sound
More than a little crazy
But I believe

I knew I loved you before I met you
I think I dreamed you into life
I knew I loved you before I met you
I have been waiting all my life

A thousand angels dance around you
I am complete now that I've found you

I knew I loved you before I met you
I think I dreamed you into life
I knew I loved you before I met you
I have been waiting all my life

I knew I loved you before I met you
I think I dreamed you into life
I knew I loved you before I met you
I have been waiting all my life

    General Comment:This song is exactly how I feel right now. I just recently met this girl, whom the second I saw her I wanted to talk to her for some odd reason. Then when we talked we just clicked and she's the most amazing person I've ever met. I can talk to her about anything and everything. She's about 98% of what my dream girl would be and I do believe thats about as close as I can get and if it is I'm happy with it. only problem is she doesnt know how I feel because I'm worried that maybe she dont feel the same but I know that when Im with her or talking to her everythings okay and shes the first person I've ever met I actually feel can save me from my problems and take me away from reality when I need to be. Great song though

    General Comment:This song could be about soul mates or it could be about mother/child realtionship the song came out when I was preggers with my son. :) After I had him,I'd kinda dance with him in my arms and hum along to it. "A thousand angels dance around you,I am complete now that I've found you",is truly what is real. :) GREAT song. :)

    General Comment:inner-thoughts,
    That's an interesting way of thinking about it, one I haven't thought of. However, if you've seen the music video, it's about this guy and girl who saw one another and the guy (darren) is imagining his future with her. In the video, they do not meet but he feels he's know her forever. But maybe there's a different meaning here. Your translation makes sense though.

    General Comment:this song makes me cry, I just had my daughter a week ago and that was the first time i ever heard this savage garden song. I was sitting in the hospital room holding her when my bf played it and i related to it alot. I knew i loved her before she was born and i finally found my way home..she makes me a better person. So to me i see this song as a mother who is pregnant and seeing her baby for the first time. AMAZING song.

    General Comment:I used to listen to this song all the time, it never really had a purpose or anything. It just had beautiful lyrics and it was sweet. Now I am with the best guy, he is the perfect boyfriend and my significant other, this song best describes your significant other. :)

    "There's just no rhyme or reason
    only this sense of completion
    like in your eyes,
    i see the missing pieces"
    says it all so well, mainly it speaks of true love, and well what i have right now, is the truest it comes, i love u.
