"If I Knew" as written by and Natasha Khan....
You know that you came at the perfect time
There was a mountain I had to claim as mine
And you brought every weather from storm to shine
But I'm thankful for who you helped me fight

Baby, if I knew what I know now
I would never turn it back around
Wrong or right, you held me up to the light
The mountain had a mirror inside
And where I was going took time

And you've seen me walk through a veil of fire
Stroll up by the darkness as my pain flew high
And I thought it was you I'd been searching for
Somehow I am a mirror, the mountain a door

Baby, if I knew what I know now
I could never turn it back around
Wrong or right, you held me up to the light
The mountain had a mirror inside
And where I was going took time

    Song MeaningNatasha stated in an interview that the song "is like the true love song on the album and it sort of - not an anti-love song at all - I can’t think of how to phrase it, but it's sort of the resolution of, the antithesis of romantic, heightened, superficial love, and it’s almost like a thank you letter to her lover for kind of helping her through this journey. So it’s kind of the deepest form of unconditional love - so for me it’s hard to listen to that, it’s kind of tearful."
