"If Only They Knew" as written by and Nicholas/richards Santino....
Talk to me
I'm torn
I could get lost in a voice like yours
Tell me if I'm wrong or right
Tell me I can stay tonight

It's in the way that you fool everyone
When you're falling in love again
So tell me how this is...

'Cause no one knows you like I do
They don't see you like I do, baby
They'll try to, oh if only they knew
They'll never come close to you

Girl you know you got it,
Oh you know you do it better
(Girl you know you got it,
Oh, you know you do it better)
And girl you know I want it,
Oh, I want it more than ever!
(Girl you know I want it,
Oh, I know it's NOW OR NEVER!)

'Cause no one LOVES you like I do
They don't see you like I do, baby
They'll try to, oh if only they knew
They'll never come close to you
They'll never come close to you

And you brighten up the WORLD,
With your eyes
And you're so damn lonley,
When you're on my mind
'Cause your the only one...

'Cause no one knows you like I do
They don't see you like I do, baby
They'll try to, oh if only they knew
They'll never come close to you
They'll never come close to you
They'll try to, oh if only they knew
They'll never come close to you

    General CommentI think this song is about 2people falling in love and then breaking up. One person is falling in love with someone else but telling the other person she wants him back one day. The guy doesnt know if he should believe her and everyone keeps telling him she is playing him "its in the way that you fool everyone when your falling in love again"

    and no one knows her like he does. People fall in love with her but they dont know her like he does. They know each other so well. they know everything. they got incredibly close and now she is wanting other people, and the other people want her back but they dont know her like her does.

    He is torn because he doesnt know what to believe. she has never lied to him and they have always been faithful.
    He also doesnt know if he should wait around for the future that he talks about or try to move on.

    My InterpretationI think it's about him falling for a friend and he is confused whether she likes him or not and he's trying to prove that he is the one she should choose.

    "The way you fool everyone when you're falling in love again" I think that particular part could mean that she is used to falling for guys who she claims she's in love with, but they treat her poorly and he is telling her that he will treat her right.

    General CommentI love this song! It doesn't seem very popular which sucks (i guess?). Hah, I hate when like a song suddenly gets so popular. It gets old after a while. Anyways SORRY FOR THE VENT! Lol. This song is so cute. I love this band but I think this is my fav. on the album. <3

    General CommentEVERYONE LET ME JUST SAY THIS IS THE BEST A ROCKET TO THE MOON SONG!
    THIS IS THE TYPE THAT YOU CAN HEAR IT FOR THE FIRST TIME AND LOVE IT!

    ANYWAYS TO ME ITS ABOUT A GUY THATS IN LOVE WITH A GIRL, HE IS VERY CLOSE TO HER, AND THEY GET EACHOTHER, NOBODY COULD FEEL THE WAY HE FEELS ABOUT HER. TO ME ITS A LOVE SONG :) IM IN LOVE WITH IT.
