or
The Monkees

I've known for a long time, the kind of girl you are
Of a smile that covers teardrops, the way your head yields to your heart
Of things you've kept inside that most girls couldn't bear
I've known you for a long time but I've just begun to care

I've known of all the heartaches, I've known of all the pain
I've seen you when the sun shines and I've seen you when it rains
I've seen you make a look of love from just an icy stare
I've known you for a long time but I've just begun to care

I know I've been blind to not have loved you all this time
But the image of you wasn't clear
I guess, I've been standing too near

Oh, it's taken me a while but I have finally found
What you are to me and that's what really counts
And what you are to me is something we can share
I've known you for a long time but I've just begun to care

Oh, it's taken me a while but I have finally found
What you are to me and that's what really counts
And what you are to me is something we can share
I've known you for a long time but I've just begun to care
