If I Only Knew

If I Only Knew
(Flannery)

If I knew I wouldn’t be here
if I knew then you could ask
if I knew then I’d allow you
to dig into my past
but I’m mixed up in confusion
just waiting for the time of day
when you climb inside my head
and decide you want to stay

If I knew you’d drive the stake in
if I knew you’d turn around
to show off all the others
on the bad side of town
’cause being me ain’t easy
like being you must be
invisible in the hallways
staring right through me

If I knew what it meant to love you
if I knew what it meant to care
all the pain worth giving
if I knew I’d still be there

If I knew what parts were true
I’d take ’em all away from you
yea if I only knew

If I knew you would be gone
if I knew when you were bound
then I’d flow like lava
and burn down this town
’cause a head is still conncted
to a heart you give up on
I may have chopped it clean off
if I knew you’d take so long

If I knew what it meant to love you
If I knew what it mean to care
all the pain worth giving
if I knew you’d still be there

If I knew how this would end
I’d start it all over again
yea if I only knew

If I knew I’d have just one chance
to not make you cry
I’d catch the rain in buckets
just to keep you dry
if I had to steal a fortune
or live hand to fist
without you by my side
oh the fun we’d miss

 If I knew what it meant to love you
If I knew what it mean to care
all the pain worth giving
if I knew you’d still be there
If I knew your tears were lazy
and your smile razor wires
I’d throw myself upon the fence
and wait for the guards to fire
