If I Never Knew You

If I Never Knew You is a love song from Disney's Pocahontas. It is sung by the title character and John Smith in the movie version, and by Jon Secada and Shanice in the pop version.

This song shows the meaning of if both Pocahontas and John Smith didn't meet, they would've never fallen in love with each other and they would've never known each other without the hate and disgust from both sides; the Native Americans and the English settlers.

Movie lyrics Edit

John Smith: If I never knew you If I never felt this love I would have no inkling of How precious life can be

If I never held you I would never have a clue How at last I'd find in you The missing part of me In this world so full of fear Full of rage and lies I can see the truth so clear In your eyes So dry your eyes

And I'm so grateful to you I'd have lived my whole life through Lost forever If I never knew you

Pocahontas: I thought our love would be so beautiful Somehow we'd make the whole world bright I never knew that fear and hate could be so strong All they'd leave us were these whispers in the night But still my heart is saying we were right For if I never knew you

John Smith: There's no moment I regret

Pocahontas: If I never knew this love

John Smith: Since the moment that we met

Pocahontas: I would have no inkling of

John Smith: If our time has gone too fast

Pocahontas: How precious life can be...

John Smith: I've lived at last...

(Instrumental)

John Smith: And I'm so grateful to you I'd have lived my whole life through Empty as the sky

Pocahontas: Never knowing why

John Smith and Pocahontas: Lost forever If I never knew you

End title pop lyrics Edit

John: If I never knew you If I never felt this love I would have no inkling of How precious life can be And if I never held you I would never have a clue How at last I'd find in you The missing part of me.

In this world so full of fear Full of rage and lies I can see the truth so clear In your eyes So dry your eyes And I'm so grateful to you I'd have lived my whole life through Lost forever If I never knew you

Shanice: If I never knew you I'd be safe but half as real Never knowing I could feel A love so strong and true I'm so grateful to you I'd have lived my whole life through Lost forever If I never knew you

John: I thought our love would be so beautiful

Shanice: Somehow we'd make the whole world bright

John & Shanice: I never knew that fear and hate could be so strong All they'd leave us were these whispers in the night But still my heart is saying we were right

Shanice: Oh if I never knew you

John: There's no moment I regret

Shanice: If I never felt this love

John: Since the moment that we met

Shanice: I would have no inkling of

John: If our time has gone too fast

Shanice: How precious life can be...

John: I've lived at last...

John & Shanice: I thought our love would be so beautiful Somehow we'd make the whole world bright

Shanice: I thought our love would be so beautiful We'd turn the darkness into light

John & Shanice: And still my heart is saying we were right

John: We were right And if I never knew you

Shanice: If I never knew you

John: I'd have lived my whole life through

Shanice: Empty as the sky

John & Shanice: Never knowing why Lost forever If I never knew you
