    “I Know You” on NRJ Radio Greece & Cyprus

    Just wanted to share this song I wrote called “I Know You” sung by Barbara Scaff, that was played on NRJ Radio in Cyprus and Greece. Got some serious rotation. As there was no promotion in place, it didn’t go very far…Still looking for a publishing deal for my catalog of 50+ songs though…

    click below to listen to it...PS: I tried to direct link to the MP3, but it did not work. Sorry...

    I KNOW YOU

    I KNOW YOU, I KNOW YOU, I KNOW YOU SO WELL

    THIS TIME LETS GET IT STRAIGHT
    THIS IS MY LIFE, YOUR NOT MY KEEPER
    YOU LEARN, GIVEN SOME TIME
    APPRECIATE, CAUSE YOUR STILL FALLING
    PRETEND NOTHING IS WRONG, YOUR NOT SO STRONG
    BETRATING ALL THAT WHAT YOU FEEL
    I CANNOT WAIT, COMMUNICATE, ‘CAUSE

    I KNOW YOU, I KNOW YOU, I KNOW YOU SO WELL

    BEHAVE, THAT’S WHAT YOU SAID
    BUT I DIDN’T SEE
    YOU WERE JUST PROTECTING A LIE
    BEGUN IN THE PAST, WITH SOMEONE ELSE
    WHO WERE YOU FOOLING ? NOT ME !
    I CERTAINLY SEE, WHAT HAPPENED TO ME
    BEFORE THE NIGHTMARE BEGAN
    WITHOUT YOU I’M FINE, I’LL SCREAM IT THIS TIME, ‘CAUSE

    I KNOW YOU, I KNOW YOU, I KNOW YOU SO WELL

    A DREAM IS ALL THAT I HAVE
    TO KEEP FROM SINKING IN THIS WRECK
    BUT I’LL SURVIVE

    I CAN’T SEE A COMPROMISE
    ALL I SEE IS YOUR DISGUISE
    ALL YOUR LIES, YOUR LIES

    RELIVE, ALL THAT WAS DONE
    GET OUT OF YOUR PAST
    I SEE THE PAIN THAT YOU FELT, I KNOW IT’S NOT FAIR
    AND YOU CANNOT BEAR
    TO FACE THE HORRORS WITHIN
    IT ISN’T A SIN, REMEMBER YOUR PAIN
    AND FEEL THE CHILD DEEP INSIDE
    IT JUST WANTS TO CRY, PLEASE GIVE IT A TRY, ‘CAUSE

    I KNOW YOU, I KNOW YOU, I KNOW YOU, I KNOW YOU,
    I KNOW YOU, I KNOW YOU, I KNOW YOU SO WELL

    Heyyy, congrats! It must be extremely exciting to hear the song you wrote getting radio play (and have your name mentioned like that). Hang in there, and hopefully that publishing deal will come through

    sounds familliar...
    Do you have it on any your videos or on your website anywhere else?
    if you do that explains the familliarness

    Welldone, you do seem to be quite the successful :p
    May i ask, did you just write it? or did you convey emotion and a meaning behind it?
    it sounds like one of those songs you would play to Psych someone, I know you, I know you, I know you (repeat x 100 times) xP

    ummm... I hate to be a stickler, but I believe you'd want to know about this:

    In the first verse, you've misspelled the same word three times. The word is "your." It should be "you're."

    It's correct as used in the rest of the lyrics. It's only the first verse that's incorrect.

    THIS TIME LETS GET IT STRAIGHT
    THIS IS MY LIFE, YOU'RE NOT MY KEEPER
    YOU LEARN, GIVEN SOME TIME
    APPRECIATE, CAUSE YOU'RE STILL FALLING
    PRETEND NOTHING IS WRONG, YOU'RE NOT SO STRONG
    BETRATING ALL THAT WHAT YOU FEEL
    I CANNOT WAIT, COMMUNICATE, ‘CAUSE

    Truly, I just want to be helpful.

    -Pete

    I wrote the music and lyrics and it was recorded at my home studio in Paris. Has a lot to do with my break up with my ex-wife. It was a very rough period to say the least.
