"If I Knew Then" as written by Charles Kelley, Richard Belmont (monty) Powell and Anna Wilson....
The first time that I saw you
Looking like you did,
We were young
We were restless
Just two clueless kids,
But if I knew then
What I know now
I'd fall in love.

You're on a bus in Chicago
Three rows to the left
You know my heart
Is racing for you
But we'd never even met
If I knew then
What I know now
I'd fall in love.

'Cause love only comes
Once in a while
And knocks on your door
And throws you a smile
And takes every breath,
Leaves every scar,
Speaks through your soul
And sings to your heart
But if I knew then
What I know now
I'd fall in love.

On a summer night
In August
Backseat of my car
Said I'm trying to get
To know you,
I took it way too far
But if I knew then
What I know now
I'd fall in love.

Whoa
'Cause love only comes
Once in a while
And knocks on your door
And throws you a smile
And takes every breath,
Leaves every scar,
Speaks to your soul
And sings through your heart
But if I knew then
What I know now
I'd fall in love.

Whoa
I used up
A lot of chances
But you give them back
But if again
It comes crawling
I'm gonna make it last

'Cause love only comes
Once in a while
And knocks on your door
And throws you a smile
It takes every breath,
Leaves every scar,
Speaks through your soul
And sings to your heart
If I knew then
What I know now

Whoa
If I knew then
What I know now

I'd fall in love

    General Commenti think it's about him not knowing people as well as he thought he did, and looking back he knows that if he'd know as much about them then as he does now, he would've loved them so much more.
    it's a really adorable song and it's really relatable[:
