"How I Know You" is the fifth song in Elton John's and Tim Rice's musical Aida.

Lyrics

Mereb:
I grew up in your hometown
At least began to grow
I hadn't got to my first shave
Before the body blow
Egyptians in the courtyard
My family in chains
You witnessed our abduction
Which possibly explains
How I know you
How I know you

Before that fateful morning
My family enjoyed
A privileged existence
For my father was employed
As adviser to the king, no less
Which surely rings a bell
For as you are his daughter
You probably can tell
How I know you
Yes, I know you

Aida:
You know too much
And what you say is better left unknown
And now I'm just a slave like you
Our lives our not our own

Mereb:
I never have abandoned
And nor I think could you,
That spark of hope for freedom
No terror can subdue

Aida:
My only hope is silence
You've never seen my face

Mereb:
No, you remain a princess
In any time or place.

Aida:
You don't know me

Mereb:
Yes, I know you

Aida:
You don't know me

Mereb:
How I know you
How I know you

There is a time, there is a place
When love should conquer all
The rest of life is pushed aside
As truth and reason fall
But only if that selfishness
Can lead to something good
I thought I knew you, princess
But I never understood
I don't know you
I don't know you
