Colin Hay – And If You Only Knew lyrics

And if you only knew, I could be good for you
You recognized in me, the spirit of your youth
And still you walked away from yourself
What a thing to do
How do you think I felt

And if you only knew, your room comes with a view
It's only a state of mind, seek and ye shall find
You still can't get over yourself,

You're outside looking in
Even with all of your wealth

And if you only knew, the love I have for you
We'd only just begun, before you said we're through
I tried to talk you down from the shelf,
But you jumped back again
My mama said I've still got my health
