"Only You Know" as written by and Alex Turner....
In a foreign place the saving grace was the feeling
That it was a heart that he was stealing
Oh, he was ready to impress and the fierce excitement
The eyes are bright; he couldn't wait to get away
I bet the Juliet was just the icing on the cake
Make no mistake, no

And even if somehow you could have shown you the place you wanted

Well, I'm sure you could have made it that bit better on your own
And I bet she told a million people that she'd stay in touch
Well, all the little promises - they don't mean much
When there's memories to be made
And I hope you're holding hands by New Years Eve
They made it far too easy to believe
That true romance can't be achieved these days

And even if somehow you could have shown you the place you wanted
Well, I sure you could have made it that bit better on your own
You are the only ones who know

    Lyric Correctionthat's the lyric of only ones who know, this is the lyric of only you know:

    I wanna see something that used to be in your eyes again,
    I'm waitin' to see it, you know it's only a question of when,
    And I know how much I'm missin' heaven,
    You know that it's missin'
    And only you know where you have been to,
    Only you know what you have been through,
    But there's better things you're gonna get into,
    And I wanna be there too.

    I know it's not easy for you to start to believe again
    And when the day comes don't let yourself be deceived again
    Cause I know how you've been waiting,
    Such a long time that you've been waitin
    And only you know where you have been to,
    Only you know what you have been through,
    There's better things you're gonna get into,
    And I wanna be there too.

    And I know how you've been waiting,
    Such a long time that you've been waitin
    And only you know where you have been to,
    Only you know what you have been through,
    But there's better things you're gonna get into,
    And I wanna be there too.

    Song MeaningAlex is basically saying how the person he's singing this to has changed while going through some tough stuff and he notices that this person feels alone.

    I love the lines:
    "Only you know where you have been to, only you know what you have been through."

    Alex understands how this person feels that nobody would understand or nobody does. So Alex is like, "I've missed the happy you but things are gonna get better, bro. I'm gonna be here while you go through all this shit and I'm gonna be there when you get over this shit.":)
