If You Only Knew
by Michael English

Album: Heaven to Earth
by Michael English


I know there's something in the wake of your smile
I get a notion from the look in your eyes, yeah
You've built a love, but that love falls apart

Your little piece of heaven turns too dark
Listen to your heart

I'm face down in the dirt, someone pick me up
I've hesitated for too long, now enough is enough
Since we first met, it was on the up and up
She smiled at me and say "Its nice to see you and such"
Yeah, I thought she was nice
But I had just been hurt so my heart was like ice
Figured I didn't really want another girl in my life
But she seemed a little different and with her I felt right
So I would see her at parties and we'd talk for a while
My emotions got stronger, kept em tucked like a file
Suppressed them, it'd always come back with a smile
And I would always question, what am I gonna do now
Cause it was complicated, but it felt right
I thought I didn't care, but she got me up all night
Thinking bout how it would be if she was more in my life
But when it came to her I was all bark and no bite
So summer ticked by like the hands of a clock
And my heart was screaming "yes", but my mind would say "stop"
And school was starting soon, I wouldn't see her a lot
So I never got to tell her how I felt or my thoughts
I would listen to my heart, but wouldn't let it speak
And now knowing that I didn't, its just haunting me
I guess I was blind then, but now I see
That I wish you had've known what you meant to me
Preach

School broke us up, she wasn't far from my mind
I figured I would see her, it was just a matter of time
Then I could tell her how I felt, just unload my mind
Winter break was starting soon, I figured perfect time
Everybody got together just to celebrate
That we could put away our books and the papermate
I start to look around the room and thought see must be late
I saw her friend and joked, she really couldn't make me wait
Then the mood changed quick, she sat down on a stool
And said "You must not have heard what happened up at school?"
She was talking to this dude and he was kind of a tool
He was drunk and drove her home, she broke her number one rule
I guess she never made it home, but ended up in a lake
Because this douche was too drunk and didn't hit his brakes
Swerved off of the road, I thought you went to her wake
I could imagine how you feel right now, my heart still aches
The worst thing is this dude treated her like shit
Made her get into the car at the crack of his whip
I know she really didn't want to, but her choices were slim
I always liked you two together, but I never liked him
I would listen to my heart, but wouldn't let it speak
And now knowing that I didn't, its just haunting me
I guess I was blind then, but now I see
That I wish you had've known what you meant to me
Preach

I'm face down in the dirt, someone pick me up
I've hesitated for too long, now enough is enough
Since we first met, it was on the up and up
She smiled at me and say "Its nice to see you and such"
Yeah, I thought she was nice
But I had just been hurt so my heart was like ice
Figured I didn't really want another girl in my life
But she seemed a little different and with her I felt right
