"If I Told You" as written by and Tom Higgenson....
If I told you I love you would it move you enough to even act as though you've heard
If I said I was leavin' would you still find a reason to ignore my every word

'Cause I'm the one who waits here for you
I'm the one who will always adore you
I'm the one who's dying for your call

Do you care at all
Do you care at all
Do you care at all

If I told you to meet me in the city this evening
Would you even think to come
Everyone would be here and my intentions are clear
I know you're easy when you're numb

'Cause I'm the one who waits here for you
I'm the one who will always adore you
I'm the one who sees right through it all

Do you care at all
Do you care at all
Do you care at all

If I told you would you care
If I told you would you still never be there
If I told you I need you would you still not agree to even offer me your hand
If I said I was dying would you keep on denying my attempts to be your man

'Cause I'm the one who waits here for you
I'm the one who will always adore you I'm the one who will catch you when you fall
Do you care at all
Do you care at all
Do you care at all
Do you care at all
Do you care at all

    General CommentWell pretty much he adores this girl, but she doesn't give him the time of day. "If I told you I love you would it move you enough to even act as though you've heard."

    General CommentIt's a pretty straightforeward song, actually. He's pondering to himself about the most likely outcome if he was to admit his feelings for some girl, who obviously doesn't think very much of him.

    Could be interpreted in a different way though.

    General Commentlike Litening said, its about him considering what would happen if he told this girl how he feels, and deciding if its worth it or not.

    General Commenti think it's pretty simple, unrequited love.., or prehaps the guy is just so scared to even ask the girl if she feels the same. i think she goes to lots of parties.., and she likes to get drunk and create a scene, "I know you're easy when you're numb", this makes her seem a little too free or that she leads loads of guys on (a tease).., it's like both are from two different cliques at school and he just doesn't know how to get through to her. i love plain white tees :) awesome song xx

    General CommentWhat do you guys think the meaning of the lines, "Everyone would be here and my intentions are clear I know you're easy when you're numb" mean? cuz it seems as though he is contemplating if he should try to take this girl to a party or something and take advantage of her or something. what do you think?
