I Didn't Know
Meja Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I was alone thinking I was just fine
I wasn't looking for anyone to be mine
I thought love was just a fabrication
A train that wouldn't stop at my station

Home alone, that was my consignment
Solitary confinement
So when we met I was scirtling around you
I didn't know I was looking for love
Until I found you

I didn't know I was looking for love
Until I found you
I didn't know I was looking for love
Until I found you
I didn't know I was looking for love
I didn't know I was looking for love

Cause there you stood, and I would
Oh, I wonder, could I say how I felt
And not be misunderstood
A thousand stars came into my system
I never knew how much I missed them

Slap on the map of my heart you landed
I was coy but you made me canded
And now the planets circle around you
I didn't know I was looking for love
Until I found you

I didn't know I was looking for love
Until I found you
I didn't know I was looking for love
Until I found you
I didn't know I was looking for love
I didn't know I was looking for love

So we built from here with love
The foundation
In a world of tears
One consulation
And now your here
There's a full brass band
Playing in me like wonderland
And if you left I'd be 2 foot small
And every tear would be a waterfall
Soundless, boundless I surround you




I didn't know I was looking for love
Until I found you

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Meja's song "I Didn't Know" depict a person who was content with being alone, not expecting to fall in love. This person believed that love was just a myth and would not come to them.

They now understand what it feels like to miss someone, to have a heart that beats fast, and to be surrounded by love. They sing about how their love has built their foundation, and they are grateful for the support that comes with it. They are now so entranced by love that if it left, they would be utterly crushed.


"I Didn't Know" is a love song that explores how love can change a person's life, captures the essence of unexpected love, and the profound impact it has on our being.
