Talk to me, I'm torn
I could get lost in a voice like yours
Tell me if I'm wrong or right
Tell me I could stay tonight

It's in the way that you fool everyone
When you're falling in love again
So tell me how this ends

'Cause no one knows you like I do
They don't see you like I do, baby
They'll try to, oh if only they knew
They'll never come close to you

Girl you know you got it, oh you know you do it better
(Girl you know you got it, oh you know you do it better)
Girl you know I want, oh I want it more than ever
(Girl you know I want, oh I know it's now or never)

'Cause no one loves you more than I do
They don't see you like I do, baby
They'll try to, oh if only they knew
They'll never come close to you [x2]

And you brighten up the world with your eyes
And you're so damn lonely when you're on my mind
'Cause you're the only one

'Cause no one knows you like I do
They don't see you like I do, baby
They'll try to, oh if only they knew
They'll never come close to you

They'll never come close to you

They'll try to, oh if only they knew
They'll never come close to you

    I think this song is written by a guy who've loved a girl for a very very long time, unbeknownst to anyone else besides him and probably only the girl, which is why he kept repeating "if only they knew (here goes 'how much i love you') they'll never come close to you (and 'coz you're mine'). "

    The song is about a guy falling in love with a girl. The song goes on about 'if only the knew, theyd never come close to you' in my opinion this means that she has a deep and dark secret that only he knows. A secret that he has accepted and is still by her side. "and you brighten up the world with your eyes' this implies that she is hiding from everyone this secret and that her eyes say she is happy when shes not. The other meaning that people have posted the 'hes talking about a girl hes falling in love with... Knows everything about her' i think these are also true.
