Jones, Tom - If I Only Knew Lyrics




Ow!!
Yeah ...
Yeah
Home grown, on the bone
All the channels show the same old war zone
As I walk alone in the city
Makin' me an offer, now don't they look pretty
New cinema
Live action, all the noise of attraction beats up
On the streets, the sellers do mark up
Better than tellin' em off, don't stock up
Shark, they don't bite
All that matters is you're not here tonight
And now that I wonder
Am I gonna dig a hole ten feet under
Under sea, under you, under we, undivided,
Undecided

[Chorus:]

If I only knew
What I could do
To make you, make you love me
to make you make you love me
If I only knew
What I could do
To make you make you love me
to make you make you love me
Up north where the snow grows colder
I travel onward 'cross the border

Looked up a girl that I once knew frozen
To be the follower of the deity
Make myself scarce while they
come to plea bargain
for my body and soul
All the flames go around, surround me
I won't go

I need the ozone
I wanna cuddle up behind your backbone
I never stay long where I'm not wanted
I fell haunted
Yo brother
Where ya gonna go
Back to the warzone
To break down the walls

[Chorus:]

If I only knew
What I could do
To make you, make you love me
to make you make you love me
If I only knew
What I could do
To make you make you love me
to make you make you love me
If I only knew
What I could do
To make you, make you happy
to make you make you happy

If only I knew what i should do, yeah
To make you make you love me
I bared my soul to the golden traces
went to the forest of the holy places
And now I wonder
Am I gonna dig a hole ten feet under
Under sea, under me, under you, under we, undivided,
Undecided
Yeah ... yeah
(vocal breakdown)
If I only knew
What I could do
To make you happy
to make you make you happy
If I only knew
What I should do
To make you make you happy
to make you make you happy
If I only knew
What I could do
To make you, make you love me
to make you make you love me
If I only knew
What I should do
To make you make you love me
If I only knew what I should do
If I only knew what I should do
