And the more we spoke, I knew why.

Hi!  When I was reading Jay Asher's 13 Reasons Why, I came across this sentence, "And the more we spoke, I knew why," and I was wondering what it might mean.  Here is the context:

It seemed like you could know me.  Like you could understand anything I told you.  And the more we spoke, I knew why.  The same things excited us.  The samethings concerned us. (p. 210)

 

The sentence in question reminds me of the structure "the+comparative, the+comparative" as in The more I know him, the more I like him, but the latter part of the sentence has no "the+comparative."  I would very much appreciate it if you share with me what you think about the sentence.  Thank you!
