Kiss - Sure Know Something - About the song


Sure Know Something is a song by the American hard rock band Kiss from their album Dynasty, released in 1979. The B-side is "Dirty Livin'," which was co-written and sung by drummer Peter Criss and appears on the Dynasty album.


Written by vocalist/guitarist Paul Stanley and producer Vini Poncia, "Sure Know Something" reached number 47 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 singles chart in 1979, and in the Top Ten in some countries around the world. It would become another top ten hit for the band in Australia.


The song incorporates disco music into the usual style of a rock ballad. It is one of two disco rock hits for the band, the other being "I Was Made for Lovin' You". It is seen as being one of the more sophisticated songs written by Paul Stanley, with critics noting the heartfelt feelings of confusion and sorrow.


Sure Know Something - Lyrics


I've been up and down, I've been all around I was mystified, almost terrified But late at night I still hear you call my name I've been on my own, I've been all alone I was hypnotized, I felt paralyzed But late at night I still want you just the same I've been a gambler, but I'm nobody's fool And I sure know something, sure know something You showed me things they never taught me in school And I sure know something, sure know something No one can make me feel the way that you do And I sure know something, aha I was seventeen, you were just a dream I was mesmerized, I felt scared inside You broke my heart and I still can feel the pain I've been counted out, I've had fear and doubt I've been starry eyed, never satisfied 'Cause late at night I still need you just the same Just the same I've been a gambler, but I'm nobody's fool And I sure know something, sure know something You showed me things they never taught me in school And I sure know something, sure know something No one can make me feel the way that you do And I sure know something, aha I've been counted out, I've had fear and doubt I've been starry eyed, never satisfied 'Cause late at night I still need you just the same Just the same, yeah I've been a gambler, but I'm nobody's fool And I sure know something, sure know something You showed me things they never taught me in school And I sure know something, sure know something No one can make me feel the way that you do And I sure know something, sure know something No one can tell me 'til I hear it from you And I sure know something, sure know something I've been a gambler, but I'm nobody's fool Sure know something, sure know something You showed me things they never taught me in school Sure know something, sure know something No one can make me feel the way that you do
