The Monkees – If I Knew lyrics

If I knew what was bothering you
I would run to your side
I don't know why
I would just die if you left me

Can't you see
What you're doing to me
Are you playing a game
Is it always the same
Am I to blame?
Or is anyone?

I don't want to settle down
With any other girl, but you
So I'm just gonna wait around
'Til you decide what you're gonna do

Can't you see
What you're doing to me?
Are you playing a game?
It's always the same?
Am I to blame?
Or is anyone?

I don't wanna settle down
With any other girl, but you
So I'm just gonna wait around
'Til you decide what you're gonna do

If I Knew

1: If I knew, what was bothering you,
I would run to your side, I don't know why,
I would just die, if you left me.
2: Can't you see, what you're doing to me?
Are you playin' a game? It's always the same.
Am I to blame, or is anyone?
Chorus: I don't wanna settle down with any other girl but you,
So I'm just gonna wait around,
'Til you decide what you're gonna do. (do)
3: Can't you see, what you're doing to me?
Are you playin' a game? It's always the same.
Am I to blame, or is anyone? (anyone, anyone)
Chorus: I don't wanna settle down with any other girl but you.
So I'm just gonna wait around,
'Til you decide what you're gonna do. (do)
Oh.
