Shinedown – If You Only Knew lyrics

If you only knew
I'm hanging by a thread
The web I spin for you
If you only knew
I'd sacrifice my beating
Heart before I lose you
I still hold onto the letters
You returned
I swear I've lived and learned

[Chorus:]
It's 4: 03 and I can't sleep
Without you next to me I
Toss and turn like the sea
If I drown tonight, bring me
Back to life
Breathe your breath in me
The only thing that I still believe
In is you, if you only knew

If you only knew
How many times I counted
All the words that wen't wrong
If you only knew
How I refuse to let you go,
Even when you're gone
I don't regret any days I
Spent, nights we shared,
Or letters that I sent

[Chorus:]
It's 4: 03 and I can't sleep
Without you next to me I
Toss and turn like the sea
If I drown tonight, bring me
Back to life
Breathe your breath in me
The only thing that I still believe
In is you, if you only knew

If you only knew
I still hold onto the letters
You returned
You help me live and learn

[Chorus:]
It's 4: 03 and I can't sleep
Without you next to me I
Toss and turn like the sea
If I drown tonight, bring me
Back to life
Breathe your breath in me
The only thing that I still believe
In is you, believe in is you
I still believe in you
Oh, if you only knew

    To me this song speaks deeper than many people give it credit for. To me it means that something so precious to you was lost or taken from you, and you got the chance of a lifetime to get it back. Whether its your family member you had a fight with or the person you're in love with. This song is pure beauty and I wouldn't change anything about it. I love it.

    I expected to see some improvements in my love life after I contacted watchcraftpowerfulspellsolutions@w. Cn and asked him to send out a spell to the universe for me, but I didn't expect a life-changing experience, that's for sure! Still, though, that's what I got! I'm not only in love, I'm going to be moving to my soon-to-be-fiance's state next month! We probably would never even have met if it weren't for prophet abokiand his wonderful powers of peace and love. I wish you all the peace and love you sent me, prophet aboki.

    Loving someone so much that you would do anything and sacrifice anything for them. You can't stand not being with them, even when you wake up in the middle of the night. Even though they maybe have moved on or are not with you any more, those feelings don't change. Sometimes they never change. When those feelings never change, it shows how much they meant to you and how much they still do.

    To those of you that are saying "this was me and my ex's song... " remember the line "you help me live and learn"! If this is the way you feel about someone, go get them back! Also, if you are just sitting around waiting for your guy to make some significant move. Sometimes I think guys just honestly don't understand that. He's probably got so many things running through his head about how he doesn't deserve you, how he let you down so badly that you "need to be set free". If you love someone and want to be with them go get them. Life is too short to wait around waiting for someone else to make a move.

    A man doesn't know how to treat his girl. This song means a lot to me because my boyfriend cheated on my once, and I took all the letters he wrote me and threw them at him in the middle of our school hallway. He was embarrassed, but it provoked him to think, and now he sings me this song whenever we get in a fight, because I know he loves me, it's just that boys are not always the smartest.
