If She Only Knew

Written by: Ali Akl

If she only knew the way i feel How weak my armor is with all its steel I try to shield myself from her charm But it moves automatically, my arm Reaching out for her everyday How I want to spend with her my day I love her but she's still blind If she could only read my mind! However, once again it is all in my head All of it, love and its shades of red But how long will it ever take For her to see how much my heart ache Emotions are taking control While misery is taking its toll Waiting as sorrow's wind blew Living with the "if she only knew"
