"I Always Knew" as written by and Paul Foglino....
I always knew you were too good for me
I always knew you knew it too
I did what I could, I knocked on wood, I hoped you understood
But I could never measure up to you

Now it scares me when I hear you talk
I know I never had a chance
But I'd rather be a nickel on the sidewalk
Than a penny in a rich man's pants

Now you've got someone to take care of you
He gives you everything you need
All those pretty things, engagement rings, all tied up in strings
I only gave you what I got for free

I always knew you were too good for me
That's what you always used to say
It's so hard to protect your self respect,
In fact that's all I kept

And that's the only thing you gave away
