Eric Roberson – She Ought To Know lyrics
Chorus:
She ought to know by now that the love I have is real
She ought to know by now everything I say I feel
She ought to know by now there's no secrets to conceal
She ought to know by now...

Verse 1:
Pulled out my heart and rang out all the love
Gave it to her but it was not enough
Went back to see if I left some behind,
Hoping that one more drop will make you mine

Chorus:
She ought to know by now that the love I have is real
She ought to know by now everything I say I feel
She ought to know by now there's no secrets to conceal
She ought to know by now...

Verse 2:
I'm out here knockin but she won't let me in
Just keeps on stoppin before we can begin
But once I'm in she will see
How good love can be
But right now her past is clouding her views of me

Chorus:
She ought to know by now that the love I have is real
She ought to know by now everything I say I feel
She ought to know by now there's no secrets, no, no secrets
She ought to know by now...

Want to show I love her so
Bridge:
I gave her kiss she said she needed more
I got in my car and went straight to the store
I spent all my dollars, and took a part a rose
For every step ya take I drop these on your toes
She shook her head
So I wrote a letter
Hoping that my words would come across better
But still no reply, least not the one I hoped
She just closed out her eyes and let out these notes

So I just stood there scratchin my head, hey
Prolly when I should have been listening instead
Wanted to know her wishes not just her fears
Just want her to know, know that I'm here

Chorus:
She ought to know by now that the love I have is real
She ought to know by now everything I say I feel
She ought to know by now there's no secrets to conceal
She ought to know by now
Oh she ought to know, by now, there's no love that's not real
She ought to know by now everything I say is real
Hey, she ought to know by now there's no secret to conceal
And I'm done
Cuz she should know by now

Marsha:
You ought to know I need you
You ought to know I care
In your love I believe in, my heart is yours to have
Now just know I'm here, you ought to know I'm yours
There's no need to fear, no need to be unsure
You ought to know to trust me you ought to know I'm honest,
So have some understanding let the truth be your promise
I know I have a love I know I have a friend
But do we know each other?
We wont know till the end
You ought to know by now
You ought to know by now
You ought to know by now
You ought to know by now

    It means that he(Eric) is saying and doing everything he can to prove that he loves her and will always be there (she ought to know by now) so he's doing all these things to make her know but he's not getting the reply he wants so he's on the verge of giving up when she (Marsha) tells him to listen. She knows that he loves her and she loves him too but for now just know that she is there but to more so to take it slow b/c she does not want to mess up this good thing. Especially because he mite be the one.
