"If Only She Knew" as written by and Marc Andrew Roberge....
If only she knew
What was going right,
If only she knew,
I would not be alone tonight.
If only she knew
What was going wrong
If only she knew
I would not be singing this song.
If only she knew
What would I do?
Would I run?
Maybe stick around just for fun
Would I take you out just us two?
That would be grand
If only she knew

If only she knew what to do
Relax with you
And let myself get lost in your smile
Well I could lose it all for awhile
Oh my dear you know its true
I love you deep, if only you knew
Well I would give it all to you
Love you true if only you knew

If only she knew
What would I do?
Would I run?
Maybe stick around just for fun
Would I take you out just us two?
That would be grand
If only she knew

    General CommentThis song is very lively! Gotta love OAR! I think its about just the crazy obsession that people have with another person that the other person is unaware of! Pretty creepy if you think bout it!! But most DEF a rad tune!

    General CommentOne of my favorite OAR songs.

    As for the meaning: Unrequited love, yes?. Or even, an unknown love.

    General CommentGood responses. Hasen't been one since 12 of 2005 holy shit..Am I the only one that still listens to O.A.R. Actually I was goin thru my CD collection and played this song again. I remember hearing this song and I was goin out with a girl, and we had a very open relationship. We both went out with other people, but always came back to each other. Anyway, when Mark sings "If only she knew what was goin right, if only she knew, I would not be alone tonight. I remember singing that to myself because even though she knew I was with someone else we never really admitted it. So that line kinda hit home. If only she knew I was with another girl 2nite and everything was going right.
    Then he sings "if only she knew what was goin wrong, I would not be singing this song". It made me think that yes I was having a good time being with another girl, but it also felt wrong because I wanted to be with my real girlfriend.
    Anyway, just throwing out my opinion.
    Keep rockin........
