“I Know” – Shovels & Rope [YouTube Music Video]

LYRICS

Shovels & Rope “I Know” Lyrics

I know exactly what you think you are
I know exactly what you think you are
You left your little notebook laying on the bar
I know exactly what you think you are
Everybody’s saying that you’re gonna go far
I know exactly what you think you are

I know exactly where you’re going next
I know exactly where you’re going next
Things are looking good for you buddy, oh yes
I know exactly where you’re going next
You got the smile and the style and the sizzle and the sex
I know exactly where you’re going next

Take it all
Take it now
Call it even
Call it even
Call it even
Take a bow

I know exactly where you got that sound
I know exactly where you got that sound
See I was at the same shows you used to hang around
I know exactly where you got that sound
See ya in a year on your way back down
I know exactly how you found that sound

I know exactly how you feel right now
I know exactly how you feel right now
You’re hiding in the locker cause somebody took your towel
I know exactly how you feel right now
There used to be a day when I would try to help you out
I know exactly how you feel

Take it all
Take it now
Call it even
Call it even
Call it even
Maybe take a bow

Americana group Shovels & Rope have shared a track titled “I Know,” that will be on their upcoming third studio album, Little Seeds. Watch the music video above, courtesy of the band’s YouTube.

Band member Cary Ann Hearst spoke with The Wall Street Journal about the song’s meaning:

No matter what career you’re in, you find petty jealousy… This is a story about two bands that came up together and were friends, but in competition – you’re watching each other and feeling mutually jealous. It’s a silly expression of that.

“I Know” showcases the band’s ability to deliver a foot-stomping tune centered around an electrified blues shuffle and raw harmonies, recalling a style similar to English rock band T. Rex.

In an email to Noisey, the band talked about the music video:

Competition can be an ugly side of show business, where friendly rivalries can devolve into petty jealousies… In our video for “I Know,” we dress those ugly feelings up all pretty and pit them against each other in a beauty contest.

Little Seeds is scheduled to be released on Oct 7, 2016 through New West Records. Pick it up on Amazon.
