"If She Knew" as written by Claude Kelly, Lemar Obika, Carsten Schack and Kenneth Karlin....
Oh, oh yeah, yeah,
She says I never listen and I'm inattentive to her emotions, yeah
I say she's got tunnel vision, only sees it her way,
So we never could work it out.
She's all ready to give up and move on, but I don't think she knows,
How I wish sometimes she could read my mind.

If she knew how bad I wanna make this work (yeah),
How my love belongs to her,
She wouldn't be able to walk away (never walk away).
If she knew how bad (how bad) I gotta have her close
(I gotta have her close),
If I ever let her go, I wouldn't make it a single day,
She would never have to escape
If she knew how bad

I've got yeah,
Gotta find a way to tell her how I feel before it is over oh,
I guess I could have done things better
I never should have let it get this far
She's all ready to give up and move on,
I don't think she knows
How I wish sometimes she could read my mind

If she knew how bad I wanna make this work (oh),
How my love belongs to her (her-are-r),
She wouldn't be able to walk away.
If she knew how bad (how bad) I gotta have her close,
If I ever let her go (oh-h-h), I wouldn't make it a single day
(not a single day),
She would never have to escape
If she knew how bad

The thought of loosing her ,'cause I did something wrong
Or 'cause I should have been there whenever she needed someone oh
It's a feeling that I know would kill me, 'cause
She's my heart, my soul, my love
I would never give her up

If she knew how bad (hey hey) I wanna make this work,
How my love belongs to her (oh),
She wouldn't be able to walk away (no, no, no).
If she knew how bad (how bad) I gotta have her close
(gotta have her close),
If I ever let her go (oh-oh-oh-oh),
I wouldn't make it a single day,
She would never have to escape
If she knew how bad

How bad I really love her
How bad, how bad,
If she only knew how,
How bad I really love her
I just can't live without her (oh oh)
If she knew how bad,
If she knew how bad

    General Commentthis song actually bums me out big time listening to it, i remember listening to this song before my ex broke up with me. I think this song relates to some guy that is in love with a this girl who never really appriciates the love he was giving her and its killing him to know that she is slipping through his fingers. This girl he is singing out is his everything and it wud break him to loose her.

    General CommentI agree with lyricalswitch! I think that in some relationships the girl or the guy (dont wanna b sexist!!) can take the otherone for granted and sometimes it causes problems, sometimes you don't realise a good thing you have until you're on the verge of loosing her or him until there gone and you're left sayin what if? Or looking at the photographs of happier times. There is a great depth of emotion in this song, I'm not really a lemar fan tbh but this song caught me off guard. I was in this position, where the guy knew he was gonna lose me .... it really hit home to him on more than one occasion but it was never enough, his jealousy, paranoid and inability to trust lead to bad times and broke us. Guys... dont take your girl for granted, tell her how you feel... before it is over.

    General CommentA guy who loves a girl so much but she doesn't understand how much. He wishes she could know but she's slipping through his fingers and he needs to stop her leaving. I was so sure the thrird line was 'And he see's it her way' As in he's losing her to some other guy, but I guess I was wrong...Great song anyway. ;D
