"If Only" as written by Robert Berkeley Davis and Amy Jane Studt....
(Uhm)

When I get time to myself
And have nothing to do
You can't help feel the bitter sweet
That searches through and through

I want someone to hear me
Someone to need me
Someone to care for
Someone to share with
Someone to stay with
Someone to lay with

If only I could find somebody
Someone who will understand
If only I could find the words
To give me what I need
If only I could find somebody
Who'll give me a helping hand
I can't let life pass me by
I'm tired of being me

I've been lonely for too long
And selfishly I've cried
I need to pull myself back up
I need to turn the tide

I want someone to hear me
Someone to need me
Someone to care for
Someone to share with
Someone to stay with
Someone to lay with

If only I could find somebody
Someone who will understand
If only I could find the words
To give me what I need
If only I could find somebody
Who'll give me a helping hand
I can't let life pass me by
I'm tired of being me
So how long will it be
Til I can let go

I need to turn the tide

I want someone to hear me
Someone to need me
Someone to care for
Someone to share with
Someone to stay with
Someone to lay with

If only I could find somebody
Someone who will understand
If only I could find the words
To give me what I need
If only I could find somebody
Who'll give me a helping hand
I can't let life pass me by
I'm tired of being me

So how long will it be

If only I could find somebody
Someone who will understand
If only I could find the words
To give me what I need
If only I could find somebody
Who'll give me a helping hand
I can't let life pass me by
I'm tired of being me

So how long will it be

Til I can let go
Til I can let go
Til I can let go

    General CommentNo comments on this beautiful song! I think the lyrics are pretty self-explanatory; girl is lonely and wishes she could find that special 'one'- 'if only I could find somebody, someone who will understand.'
    Who hasn't been there?
