I must have rehearsed my lines a thousand times,
Until I had them memorized.
But when I get up the nerve to tell you
The words just never seem to come out right.
Chorus:
If only you knew how much I do,
Do love you. If only you knew
How much I do, I do need you.
I dream of moments we share but your not there
I'm living in a fantasy.
Cause you don't even suspect,
Could probably care less
About the changes I been going through.
Chorus
No, you don't even suspect,
Could probably care less
About the changes I been going through.
Chorus (x2)
Oh, if, if....
In my....
Love you.....
Iife....You don't know,
I say you don't know
How much I need you sugar
If only you knew
How much I do
I say you don't know that I love you
And I'm so fond of you...I love you baby

    To me, this song is just like "just my imagination" and "my cherie amor". It is the ultimate crush song. I am watching you and you may or may not notice me, but you do not know what I feel for you. For whatever reason, I cannot seem to convey my feelings to you.

    I like some bold men, when I see someone that I want to be with intimately, I get tied-tongued and can not for the life of me say impromptly the feelings that I have for that person. I have lost two awesome ladies by "If they only knew"
    Shame, shame, shame.
