"I Wish You Knew" as written by Mariah Carey and James Quenton Wright....
I've got to see you
Wherever you are
And I've got to be there
I'm wishing on stars
I've got to reveal what's inside of my heart
But the words escape me
And I'm paralyzed
So helpless when I
Look into your eyes

And how I wish you only knew
What I feel inside for you
You probably haven't got a clue
But I wish you knew
How I love you baby

Honestly I know it's silly of me
To want you so badly
But keep it concealed
See my inferiority complex kicks in
And the words escape me
And I'm paralyzed
So helpless when I
Look into your eyes

And how I wish you only knew
What I feel inside for you
You probably haven't got a clue
But I wish you knew
How I love you baby

    General CommentDamn, it's so amazing how she can tell the way that some of us feel. She's such a big talented star and still can be full thoughts of an ex that she's still into somehow...I am like ten years younger than her but feel exactly the same thing...if only this former love of mine knew how much I think about him...how much he actually hurt me and the way he can manipulates me...He probably doesn't have a clue and I doubt he will...but he will remain steady in my mind. I link this one with "Breakdown", "Crybaby"...I think they all talk about the same person, the feeling behind it is so strong, and I can see the resemblance.
    I recommend everyone to go and buy this album, you won't regret it.

    General CommentI Wish He Knew... how I felt... but the moment passed and now until the end I will always think of him. I wish I told him how I felt but I didn't... the moment we shared will last until the end of time... I know that my very last thought will be of him... I WISH HE KNEW... but he will never know... I will probably never even see him again... but I wish he knew!
