I never knew your Saturday
Or your two a.m., or your last goodbye
I never knew your final words 
Too insincere to honestly reply
I never knew your easily swayed
Your one last try [*note: often sung as "Your don't ask why"]

I never knew your long weekend
Or your passing through, or your on my way
I never knew your obvious 
Your predictable or your what I can not say

I never knew your hidden concerns your I canít stay

I said
I donít
Know you
And you donít know me 
And weíre so happy

I never knew your long ago
Or your once in time or your fairy tale
I never knew your heroine
Or your figurine or your porcelain detail
I never knew your story untold 
One night unveiled

I said
I donít
Know you
And you donít know me 
And weíre so happy

She walked into 
This tragedy
And she never looked at me
I always lied
Iíd watch her cry
And not ask why

I never knew your Saturday
Or your two a.m., or your last goodbye
I never knew your final words 
Too insincere to honestly reply
I never knew your easily swayed
Your one last try

I said
I donít
Know you
And you donít know me 
And weíre so happy
