I just ran into a few someones today
Someones that I never really knew
And I used to think how I had them all so figured out

But no, none of it's true 'cause I never knew you
And now the truth of it is, is I want to be like you
So hello, good friend, I want to be next to you
For my head for my heart for its true

So I'm burning the thoughts of the things that I once said
Because you tore down the walls that the world that has put inside my head
And I just get of sick of things that we think, we think we know

And no, none of it's true 'cause I never knew you
And now the truth of it is, is I want to be like you
So hello, good friend, I want to be next to you
For my head for my heart for its true

So take me and save me and change me and then make me
And embrace me and then brave my heart for you
No, No, 'cause I can't go on without you
And it's time for something never knowing, oh

And no, none of it's true 'cause I never knew you
And now the truth of it is, is I want to be like you
So hello, good friend, I want to be next to you
For my head for my heart for its true

And as they as strolled along
My heart broke out in song
From all the things and the thoughts and assumptions that I had wrong
See now I'll be on my way to make this claim
I'll make it famous in every way
I'll make it stay when I will save it

No, none of it's true 'cause I never knew you
And now the truth of it is, is I want to be like you
So hello, good friend, I want to be next to you
For my head for my heart for its true
For my head for my heart for its true
For my head for my heart for its true

    General CommentWow is this song ever open for interpretation. I actually thought of it as turning away from God and Christiantiy. See, I am gay. And for me, what the people "never really knew" is who gay people actually are - and not what Christians make them out to be.

    Religious people claim that they have me "all so figured out".. but I know first hand that 'none of it's true' cause they never really knew me.

    For me, then, the song is more about a Christian finding out who I really am, and now knowing that what they were taught - none of it's true.
