Lyrics

Hi, dear
I know you still care about me
Even when you don't let it show

Hi, dear I know you still care about me
Even when you don't let it show
I have no fear, 'cause I know you still care about me
Even when you don't let it show
You can't fool me, you can't fool me
You can't fool me, 'cause I just know
You can't fool me, you can't fool me
I know you like me, dear, I know, I know

Hi, dear
I know you still care about me
Even when you don't let it show
I have no fear, 'cause I know you still care about me
Even when you don't let it show
You can't fool me, you can't fool me, no
You can't fool me that way no more
I know you like me, I know you still care
Ha ha, dear, even when you don't let it show

And you know, it almost feels like the time has come
You know, it almost feels like the time can't tell
You can't hide that love forever
But take your time, dear I know you're gonna let it show

I know it
I can't be fooled
