I Had No Idea

I had no idea how much I didn’t know

Until I met her

I had no idea how much I didn’t know

Until she taught me

I had no idea how much I didn’t know

Until she loved me

I had no idea how much I didn’t know

Until she left me

I had no idea how much I didn’t know

Until I broke down

I had no idea how much I didn’t know

Until I hit rock bottom

I had no idea how much I didn’t know

Until the tears started falling

I had no idea how much I didn’t know

Until the sky started falling

I had no idea how much I didn’t know

Until the ground fell out beneath me

I had no idea how much I didn’t know

Until I felt a new depth of uncertainty

I had no idea how much I didn’t know

Until the desperation overtook me

I had no idea how much I didn’t know

Until the gravity stopped pushing me

I had no idea how much I didn’t know

Until I stared myself in the mirror

I had no idea how much I didn’t know

Until I recognized who I am

I had no idea how much I didn’t know

Until I knew she wasn’t like the rest

I had no idea how much I didn’t know

Until she laughed with me, instead of at me

I had no idea how much I didn’t know

Until she taught me to love me

I had no idea how much I didn’t know

Until I found the patience to learn
