"If Only" as written by and Douglas Sean/estrin Robb....
I thought it wasn't wrong to hide from you.
A simple Truth I was scared I'd felt it all along.
But it hurt to much for me to share.

[Chorus:]
If only I had been less blind,
I'd have someone to hold onto.
If only I could change your mind.
If only I had known, if only I had you.

I finally understand why things have
Happened and how it all could go so wrong.
Will this pain ever end,
Cause I don't think I can carry on.

[Chorus]

If only I had you.
If only I had you.

If only I had been less blind,
I'd have someone to hold onto.
(I won't let go.)
If only I could have spoke my mind.
If only it were true.
(We could start right now)
I know I'll make it through If only I had you.

If only I had you.
If only I had you.

    General Commentthis song is very beautiful, he's in love with someone and is scared to tell that person he's real feelings, but then he sees that maybe if he would had the courage at that time he maybe would now be with the person is very beautiful

    well i really think that there are people who like to ruin other people way of thinking so ignore those persons

    General CommentThis Song is clearly about a STRAIGHT GUY that is in love with a girl, but he felt like she didn't love him and he was scarred to tell her that. Then eventually they split up and he realized that he was blind. She really did love him. And if he would have realized it sooner he would still have her in his arms. Because not all women are able to express the way they feel.

    General CommentOkay, let's make everything about gay people and sex, Miss Devil. Especially when he says "Miss" in "Inside of You". Anyway, it could just be about someone he loved getting away because he was reluctant or something. You never know.

    General CommentThe sped up version of this song sounds better! Y is no one commenting. I do like it but not as much since the top comment ruined it for me! Are these guys really gay? Thats what I've been seeing. Anyone who watches amvs on youtube and likes naruto should see Serenayasha's If only naruto version...but anyways I think now that neongreen44 got it right...nope in fact I'm sure hes right unless someone tells me with proof that they are gay.
    The lyrics are right! I didn't know that! Anniemack666 still made this song worse than it had to be. I'm not against gay or anything but it ruined the vibe I got from it!

    General CommentMaybe it ISN'T about a gay guy.
    I agree with animecard, ha anniemack666
    ruined it for me at first too.

    But I'm thinking about it and maybe it means
    that he thinks he likes the girl that he SHOULD
    like. So he blows off the girl that ovbiously loves him.
    and he secretly loves her back. But he waited too
    long to tell her and now she's gone?

    I don't know. I just thought I would put something
    out there since no one else had yet.
