What if you knew,

How much I really love you?

That I would die for you,

Just to make you happy.

What if you knew,

That you are my whole world?

That everything I do, I do for you.

What if you knew,

How often I worry about you?

That I've cried myself to sleep,

Hoping you're okay.

What if you knew,

How much you mean to me?

That I would give up everything,

Just to be with you.

What if you knew,

What it is like to be me?

How hard it is to love someone,

And have them taken away.

What if you knew,

About the demon trapped inside me?

Constantly overcoming me,

Making me afriad of my own reflection.

What if you knew,

About my deepest, darkest serects?

Would you still love me,

If you knew the horrible truth?

What if you knew,

How much I think about you?

Always on my mind,

Haunting me in my dreams.

What if you knew,

How much I look forward to seeing your face?

That I long to hear your voice,

And feel your touch.

What if you knew,

About the pain in my heart?

The distance between us is growing,

And all I can do is watch...and wait.

What if you knew,

How much I miss you?

That whenver you're gone,

I feel completely numb.

What if you knew,

How much I depend on you?

How you are the only thing,

Keeping me going.

What if you knew,

How much I trust you?

That I trust you with my life,

As well as my heart and soul.

What if you knew,

About all of these things?

Would things be different,

If only I could tell you?

What if you knew,

About everything I want to say?

Would you still be here,

At my side, holding my hand?

What if you knew,

How hard it is for me to trust people?

That I've given you as much as I can give,

Without receiving something back.

Maybe if I could have been there,

And been a better friend,

Maybe I would still have you,

Beside me, guiding me.

If only I could tell you,

What you mean to me.

And even if I did,

Would you believe me?

Would you do what all the others did,

And throw it back at my face?

I guess I'll never know,

Because I'm not strong enough to open up to you.

So now, as I mourn over your departure,

And watch you fade away,

I know in my heart,

It's my own fault,

For not showing you my true feelings.

And now it's too late.

What if you knew...?
