"Know Now Then" as written by and Ani Difranco....
It's not so much that we got closer
It's that her face just got bigger
And by the time it was taking up my whole view
I figured my face had got bigger too

So I used it to try and sway her
Say something to her
Make my case but my face
Never had a chance

All along it was the wrong song and dance
I just stood there without even a stance
Helpless to her advance and her retreat
Backspace, delete

It wasn't so much that we fell in love
As my life just seemed to come down
To a slow walk on a straight line
Between her smile and her frown

And maybe we never were as close
As we should have been
But I didn't know what I know now then
Yeah, I didn't know what I know now then

But I didn't know what I know now then
But I didn't know what I know now then
