Background Edit

On January 20, 2015, Zedd posted a picture on his Instagram of a piece of paper saying "I want you to know..."[5] Four days later, Gomez posted a picture of Zedd's arms around her with a caption of "Hint #2 #iwantyoutoknow".[6]

Zedd confirmed the release of the single, as well as its cover art, via Twitter on February 13, 2015.[7] The announcement for the music video was made on February 27.[8]

Cover Me remix competitionEdit

A few days after the release of True Colors, Zedd announced via Facebook that he'd teamed up with Guitar Center to hold an "I Want You to Know" remix competition.[9] The winner was announced on the last day of August 2015.[10]

Lyrics Edit

I want you to know that it’s our time
You and me bleed the same light
I want you to know that I’m all yours
You and me run the same course

I’m slippin down a chain reaction
And here I go here I go here I go go
And once again I’m yours in fractions
It takes me down pulls me down pulls me down low

Honey it’s raining tonight
But storms always have an eye have an eye
Tell me you’re covered tonight
Or tell me lies tell me lies lies

I want you to know that it’s our time
You and me bleed the same light
I want you to know that I’m all yours
You and me we’re the same force
I want you to know that it’s our time
You and me bleed the same light
I want you to know that I’m all yours
You and me run the same course

(I want you)
(I want you)

I want you to know that it’s our time
You and me bleed the same light

I’m better under your reflection
But did you know did you know did you know know?
That’s anybody else that’s met ya
It’s all the same all the same all the same glow

Honey it’s raining tonight
But storms always have an eye have an eye
Tell me you’re covered tonight
Or tell me lies tell me lies lies

I want you to know that it’s our time
You and me bleed the same light
I want you to know that I’m all yours
You and me we’re the same force
I want you to know that it’s our time
You and me bleed the same light
I want you to know that I’m all yours
You and me run the same course

You and me run the same course

(I want you)
(I want you)

I want you to know that it’s our time
You and me bleed the same light
I want you to know that I’m all yours
You and me run the same course
