"I Don't Know" as written by and R.l. Iii/glover Altman....
I wish I could teach you how to feel like me
And I wish you could just know what it is that I see
'Cause if you ever wanted to I just can't say
If I ever really could, make you feel this way

And this should be able to withstand so much more
When we're falling apart I can't determine what's in store
A friendship is a sacred bond that should bare all
But threatened now, and vanishing, it makes me stall

If I could only find the way to make you
See how much I want the best
If I could just describe the words that
Don't put us to the test
'Cause if I go to deep you might be scared
If I say too much you won't be there
If I try too hard I think
You might not ever see what's so unfair

I need you like the way it was
Not so very long ago
And just like you I want this thing to stop its death
And start to grow
We should be doing so much better
We used to work together
But what I can do now I just don't know

If maybe you hadn't ever looked at me that way
And if maybe your eyes had never lightened up my day
If maybe your lips had never curled over your teeth
Then maybe when you smiled
I never would have felt so weak

If maybe we'd never hugged before
If one kiss had just once been then been no more
If this bond had never climbed to the foreground
Well I'm not sure if it would be like this
Where no one else is worth being around

I want this to work more than anything in the world
And I would give up everything
Peace of mind means nothing when you're not on my mind
And all I have for you is this song to sing
