AJ: Oh yes...
Seven AM, thinking about you
Wondering if the thoughts I'm feeling you feeling too.
Like a newborn child, soft to the touch
Baby, is it possible to love someone so much, mmm...
Nick: I wish, I may,
I wish, I might be that certain someone
You wish for every night

AJ (Chorus): If you knew what I knew
You wouldn't say what you said
Brian: If you knew what I knew
We'd be together instead
AJ: Of you breaking my heart (All: Breaking my heart)
With things that aren't true
All: My lady, yes, (AJ: My lady, yes, my lady)
If you knew what I knew
AJ: Ah...Ah...Ah..
All: Ahhh...

Brian: Time passes by
The only tears I cry
Are filled with this illusion
Fears I have inside
Like a lost soul
I feel like I'm all alone (All: All alone)
If only I could feel your pain
Within your heart of sorrow
Howie: I wish, I may
I wish, I might be that certain someone
You wish for every night

Repeat Chorus

AJ: Then you wouldn't have to go away
If you knew what I knew
Then you would be here to stay right by my side, oohhh...
If you knew what I knew
You wouldn't say what you said
If you knew what I knew
We'd be together instead
AJ: Of you breaking my heart (All: Breaking my heart)
With things that aren't true
All: My lady, yes, my lady

Brian: If you knew what I knew, my baby
You would never have said what you said
If you knew what I knew my baby
We would be together instead
If you knew what I knew, my baby
You would never have said what you said
If you knew what I knew my baby
We would be together instead
Girl, if you knew
All: Say what you said
Brian: If you only knew

All: If you knew what I knew my baby
We would be together instead (Brian: Girl if you knew)
If you knew what I knew, my baby (AJ: Love you, oohh, yeah)
You would never have said what you said
If you knew what I knew my baby
We would be together instead (Brian: Girl, if you knew)
If you knew what I knew, my baby (AJ: Say what you said)
You would never have said what you said
If you knew what I knew my baby
We would be together instead
(Repeat to Fade)
