"God Only Knows" as written by and Dave Richard/panagaris Bassett....
I feel so alone, Cant seem to find my out of this lone?
No, it don't seem right
I didn't have a chance to say goodbye.

In this this silent space, I close my eyes I can hear you say
That it's alright, but my world's such an empty place tonight.
Cause I know that, it's all part of life.

I wish I had the chance to say goodbye, yeah I still miss you.
It's so hard to see through the tears I've cried.
Yeah, I still need you.
Cause I don't want to, if I don't have to ever let you go.
The longest I'll hold on.
God only knows.

As the time goes by, it gets a little easier to smile.
No I'll never forget everything that you said.
You said its alright, it's all part of life.

I wish I had the chance to say goodbye, yeah I still miss you.
It's so hard to see through the tears I've cried.
Yeah, I still need you.
Cause I don't want to, if I don't have to ever let you go.
The longest I'll hold on.
God only knows.

{The hard times} will never fade if you keep looking up
Right around there is a better place if you believe in love.
Cause I know that, it's all part of life.

I wish I had the change to say goodbye, yeah I still miss you.
It's so hard to see through the tears I've cried.
Yeah, I still need you.
Cause I don't want to, if I don't have to ever let you go.
The longest I'll hold on, the longest I'll hold on.
The longest I'll hold on.
God only knows.
God only knows.
Ya, God only knows.
God only knows.a

    General CommentShe said it is about Michael Jackson and a friend who died shortly after MJ did. This song really touches my heart. It is powerful yet sad and I think if I sing along, I too, will cry. She didnt want these important people in her life to go away but they did and she says how God only knows when we will die.

    I LOVE U ORIANTHI!

    General CommentClearly about someone who died, and she is having trouble letting go. very easy to relate to if you have lost anyone, from a grandparent, parent, to a friend or boyfriend. i definately relate to this song. Orianthi is a very talented singer and kills at the guitar!

    General CommentThis is Orianthi's best song. It's about someone she loved who died and she doesn't want to let go. It reminds me of my grandma who died, so it makes me sad but I still like it!

    Song MeaningOne of her bests by far. Along with Untogether and ATY.
    It is basically about losing someone and regretting not being able to say goodbye.
    Who even knows when we should say goodbye? When were going to lose someone?
    Only God does.
