Mike + The Mechanics - If Only Lyrics

Still waters always run so deep
I've heard you cry in the night And talk in your sleep

Why would you want to,
Keep it all inside?
Now you're alone,
With nothing but your pride.

If only you'd listened to me
Cos I still want you now
I don't want to be free
If only you listened to me
Cos I still feel the loss
And it won't let me be

I've tried talking long into the night
But nothing that I tried to say
Ever came out right

There's no point in crying
My tears have run dry
I hope that you're satisfied

If only you'd listen to me
Cos I still want you now
I don't want to be free
If only you listened to me
Cos I still feel the loss
And it won't let me be

    i guess this could be anybody (but sometimes our pride is the only thing that keeps us strong). very few are taught how to express ourselves openly without others judging us as thinking it's ego when in fact "pride" in who we are is just the opposite. it's called "loving ourselves" because if we can't do that, we have no sense of self worth and we'll look at others the same way. this is the first things we should teach our children well because pride is what drives us to always be better...

    I'm going to listen to this again! The words are powerful, however at the end of the day I would rather have my pride and be alone then settle for anything less!

    oh, so you knew Freud too? hahahah

    You have to have a certain amount of ego - it gives you  sense of self, empowerment, independence and strength. Balance is the key - to value others in the same way.

    Still waters? not for me, not for you and this.... I know, I know, i know looking back I can only say that "everything IS the way it should be" no use in crying or being obsesive it ain´t worth it, but I can´t deny I still remember you,

  8. Claudia Noriker

    @themoshmenace Sorry, but i only have this copy of the song, and it's cut at the end - yeah. I uploaded it, 'cause i coudn't find it on Youtube, and i wanted to send it to someone special. And no, i'm not embarrased, cause it brings me so much memories. Peace!

    Desde luego, Mike and The Mechanics es un grupo infravalorado, no me cabe la menor duda. Tengo todos sus discos y tienen una enorme cantidad de temas buenísimos. Es de lo mejor que he escuchado.

  11. intoxa

    @medindom Yes, the song is great, but not so popular, and I don't know why...

  12. medindom
