If Only You Knew

Your lips like heaven
Once kissed my rosy cheeks
Your eyes like oceans
Go on endlessly

My life shames me
and yet all the while
I'm still hanging on to you when
I know it's not worthwhile

My hands tremble because they need to be touched by you
My heart is aching, I need to be loved by you
Oh, if only you knew

If only you knew
that together we belong
If only you knew
how much love was put in this song
Oh, if only you knew

Your love means paradise
I took it for granted
Come listen to me now
You're all I've ever wanted

Your words pierce me
and now all the while
Your eyes on someone else make it
Impossible to smile

How I long to run my fingers through your onyx hair
I'd do anything to get that smile and amending stare from you
Oh, if only you knew

If only you knew
how much I cried when you were gone
If only you knew
How sure I was that I went wrong
Oh, if only you knew

How many more years
it seems so long?
How many more tears?
It's so hard to stay strong.

If only you knew
how much it hurts to be wrong
If only you knew
how much love was put in this song
Oh, if only you knew
If only you know, If only you knew
How much I still love you
