I Knew I Loved You
Savage Garden Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Maybe it's intuition
But some things you just don't question
Like in your eyes, I see my future in an instant
And there it goes
I think I found my best friend
I know that it might sound
More than a little crazy but I believe
I knew I loved you before I met you
I think I dreamed you into life
I knew I loved you before I met you
I have been waiting all my life

There's just no rhyme or reason
Only the sense of completion
And in your eyes
I see the missing pieces I'm searching for
I think I've found my way home
I know that it might sound
More than a little crazy but I believe

I knew I loved you before I met you
I think I dreamed you into life
I knew I loved you before I met you
I have been waiting all my life
Ooh, ooh, ooh

A thousand angels dance around you
Ooh, ooh, ooh
I am complete now that I've found you

I knew I loved you before I met you
I think I dreamed you into life
I knew I loved you before I met you
I have been waiting all my life

I knew I loved you before I met you
I think I dreamed you into life
I knew I loved you before I met you
I have been waiting all my life

I knew I loved you before I met you (ooh, ooh, ooh)
I knew I loved you
I knew I loved you before I met you (ooh, ooh, ooh)
I knew I loved you

I knew I loved you before I met you (oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)




I knew I loved you before I met you (yeah)
I knew I loved you

Overall Meaning

"I Knew I Loved You" is a beautiful love song from Savage Garden, released in 1999. The lyrics of the song seem to describe the feeling of love at first sight, or a strong intuition that someone has found their soulmate. The singer is convinced that they have found their future in their lover's eyes and believe that they dreamed of them before they even met.


The song starts with the lyrics "Maybe it's intuition, but some things you just don't question," indicating that there is a certain inexplicable feeling that connects two people who are meant to be together. The singer believes that they have found their best friend in their lover, and the sense of completion, the missing piece they were searching for, is found in their partner's eyes. There is a deep sense of security and comfort in being with the one they love.


The chorus of the song, with its repetition of "I knew I loved you before I met you, I have been waiting all my life," emphasizes the strong belief in the power of destiny and that the one they love is their soulmate. The lyrics also mention a thousand angels dancing around their lover, perhaps implying that their love is something that transcends humanity and is divinely destined to be.


Overall, "I Knew I Loved You" is a beautiful, poetic expression of love and the belief that true love is predestined and transcends time and space.

I was pregnant for my daughter when this song came out, I used to sing it to my pregnant belly, and after she was born I sang it as a lullaby to her while I rocked her to sleep at night. She's 19 years old today, and this song still holds true. I loved her before I met her, she's the baby girl I always dreamed of having, and she became my best friend. This song will always be beautiful and so very special!

I knew when I first saw her in 1983. Finally met her in 1985, dated until 1993, married her in 1994. Still together in 2021.
