If you only knew,

How much it hurts,

That I can't talk to you.

If you only knew,

You're the only one,

I believe in.

If you only knew,

How you save me,

Then you'd still be around.

If you only knew,

What you do to me,

Then you'd change your ways.

If you only knew,

That I'd do anything for you,

Then maybe you'd do the same.

If you only knew,

How much I love you,

Then maybe you'd love me back.

If you only knew,

The pain you cause me,

Then maybe things'll change.

If you only knew,

That I'm hanging by a thread,

Then maybe you'd save me.

If you only knew,

The fact that I'm dead,

Then maybe you'll think.

If you only knew,

How much I'd wish you'd notice,

Then maybe you'll stop scaring me.

If you only knew,

You could've saved me,

Then you'll think back.

If you only knew,

The nights I'm sleepless,

Then you'd help me sleep.

If you only knew,

The stars have faded away,

Then maybe you'd light my sky.

If you only knew,

My moon has disappeared,

Then your eyes could light my way.

If you only knew,

The music I listen to,

Then maybe you could change that.

If you only knew,

How much your smiles lighten me,

Then you'd smile more.

If you only knew,

How I refuse to let you go,

Even though you're already gone.

If you only knew,

How I stare into space,

Because I don't know.

If you only knew,

How I think,

Then you'd pay attention.

If you only knew,

That you're all that is on my mind,

Then you might've cared.

If you only knew,

That I like it better,

On the ground than to be up.

If you only knew,

The misery in me,

Then you would've helped me.

If you only knew,

What I'm about to do,

You'd try to stop me.
